First, sorry about the delay, no internet at home!
It's the bulldog that humps, but we are working with him. And thank you for the link! I printed it off so my husband could read it and follow it
with me. I was surprised that some of it we were already doing. Now it is just a matter of full time and more outside exercise. Although its hard
right now, with 9 degree weather!
Also, to the posters with food aggression issues. One of our previous pups started growling when people or the cat got near his food. I did some
searching and read about taking his food away when he started, and hand feeding him. Within a week, it stopped. Again, it's about letting them
know you are the "Alfa" in all ways.
And thanks for the kind words BH.
You are so correct about the responsibility of dogs. If you want a good, well behaved dog, it goes well beyond just making sure they have food and
water and a safe place to sleep.
