Oh, that's good to know. I thought maybe I was being a bad owner there for a second, like, not enough of the "No!" talk.
So, it turns out I have another question.
If I sound crazy a little bit, don't worry I'm not - I just really love my sweety.
I've never yelled/hit/or raised a hand at my LiLi, but, whenever I tell her "no" or "come here lili, did you do that?" she will run under my bed and hide…. When she does that, it does make you feel bad for telling her "No" - or for saying whatever you said, lol. That's odd because, I always talk to her in a calm, sweet voice because I don't want her to do that.
My mom thinks she just knows that I eventually give her what she wants if she does that. And it's not like I'm some evil dog hitter or something, I just don't get it. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
I've had other dogs before, but none who were so emotional, and freaked out like this. I kinda think that maybe she was a dog who was hit....because I did get her from a pound, and she does have some scars on her mouth. But then again, when my mom tells her to do something, she does it. Go figure...I think it's just that "mom voice" - you know the tone your mom gives you sometimes.
