    rule...if something doesn't feel quite right....then it more than likely isn't!

    If something sounds too good to be true....it probably is!

    Ditch Cesar and have some serious fun!!!

    Yep. Right now Dora's lying on her little rug-bed (I added a blanket so now shes extra comfy... she has a little pillow too) asleep, so I might let her sleep for maybe an hour or two, then we'll get started on our walk. She fell asleep while I was getting changed and getting everything ready for our walk, so I figured, why, not, we can always walk later.

    You are doing great Masha! It will all come to place eventually. I almost stuffed up one of my dogs with this "alpha bull**" but thank God I realised my mistakes in time and started thinking differently. Remember to award Dora for any good thing or behaviour she does. For example, if she jumps on your bed without permission and you don't want her up, tell her to get down, and when she does it praise her, give her a treat. Maybe she will still jump up when you're not at home, but that won't mean she wants to overpower you, or become "alpha". Dogs just look for most comfy spot where the smell of their owners is most intense. My dog likes to take my shoes and hug them So I live an old pair of sneakers for her as she does not chew them. We have to set the rules, but we have to compromise as well. You want your dog to be our best mate, your companion, a part of your family... and you can certainly achieve that without threats and harsh methods.

    You say you nearly stuffed with the Alpha bullsh!t, when did you realise your mistakes? How old was the dog?

    He was about 5-6 months old. I got him when he was about 2-3 months old.
