That's fine Phoneix...
Having been a nipper myself once, and having had that territorial moment, I am sure that it plays a part. I am also sure that over sensitivity on
his part about having his little brothers around, who do catch it in the neck when they destroy his things, is more a product of his being unable to
control them, and the fact that they mess with his routines, than it is a regular part of the growing process.
A wolf cub is expected to want to gain some independence at some stage, God knows I did when I was a pup, but he refuses to spend any time around his
siblings, or with the family as a wider entity, without causing grief, throwing tantrums, and straight up loosing it with his mother.
Either way, until he learns to control himself a little bit, I cannot take him on a grand adventure to anywhere, or treat him to things, otherwise I
would be sending a message that he can do whatever he likes, and come to me at the weekend on Sundays and know that at my place, anything goes, and
nothing he does the rest of the week has consequences. I am in constant touch with his mother via email, and have worked out through contact with her,
that most of his complaints are unfounded. He already has three brothers, so any four child household is bound to suffer some breakages at some point.
Part of growing up, is taking responsibility, and he will soon have a baby sister in the house.
He will need to interact with his brothers MORE not less, over the next four or five years, as part of that responsibility as the eldest brother, and
that time will be a thousand times more stressful for him, and for the family unit as a whole, if he does not get this crap on board soon.
