O.k so I got home today as fast as i could cause my B was nipping at my daughter so I told her to go in her room and wel when he is left alone he poops ….so I get home and I clean up my dear champ's mess and proceed to take him for his run. We ran for an hour he played with a pit bull and when we got home he started with the nipping, but it seems it is getting a bit rougher at least towards my 12 year old daughter. So we go through the whole routine no bit no bit, I hold him down by the collar, make him sit and try get him to relax. Anyway to make this long story short I don't know what his deal is with my daughter. She's good with him but she can't handle the nipping so her interaction with him is not as it was when he first arrived. Needless to say that I'm agravated because she is my daughter and he can hurt. But anyway we sit down for dinner and he's jumping on the table...no champ down I say and as soon as I get up and stand next to him he gets down. Oops I forgot..let's rewind...when he was nipping my daughter I stood in front of her and told him no biting and he bit me/nipped me I went after him..no screaming just following him and he went under the bed. Now he used to do this whenever we played but now I'm wondering is he afraid. I don't see ..we are not rough with him and yesturday when he peeped in the kitchen he ran under the bed....this is my first wonder..is he afraid?
O.k so now we move to dinner..well I'm exhausted and just want him to stay still like a good boy the way he can so I gave him one of the beef rib bones my daughter was eating.....Horay he loved it and stood still for 30 min. Now he is calm and just wants to relax. Here's my second wonder...I heard that rawhide can cause dogs to throw up so is there a substitute I can use since I guess he likes bones..go figure I mean he is a dog after all.
Anyway thanks to all of you who read my babbling on, like I said I'm exhausted and this forum has become my outlet.
FYI...the trainer is coming on Saturday and we are gonna get a crate
