    Smile Update on Gypsie

    ok so we got some advice on gypsie's im higher in the pack than you dano hence when you approach my beautiful mistress laura i shall bark and growl at you, and if you decided to ignore me il bite you issue.

    so its been tough love im afraid, shes no longer allowed on the couch when shes inside, when shes in shes on her bed an no-where else, she is no longer allowed on the bed and she no longer sleeps under the bed( she did this the first night we brought her home i think she felt safe there so we let her) she now sleeps on her bed in the fathest corner of the room on dano's side.
    when we come home we greet each other first and only give her attention if she's on her bed. and we have enrolled her in a puppy school. to start soon.

    she was sooooooooooo depressed the first day (it has been 4 days since the intervention) but guess what..........there has been not one growl....not one bark...not even one hair standing on end ALREADY!!!! i think she's happier for it as well.. i know dano definitely is......

    Well done !! You've made the transition really well by the sound of things. Gypsie will be really happy now & should not act out now that you have taken over as pack leader. It really stresses some dogs badly if they feel they have to take on that role.

    FANTASTIC news!! yep, you have done all the right things....do not give up or brake the new routine...that will just make Gypsie confussed.
    Well done to all of you....it really is not that hard to do when you look back on it...was it?
    GOOD JOB!
    I am soooo happy for you!

    That is the best news ever. Keep up the good work.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    the hardest thing is not letting dano give her attention when she comes up to him when she's meant to be on her bed. she knows im boss but he is so excited that she's not trying to eat him he gives her cuddles when she's being naughty but we're getting there!!

    Sounds a bit "anal", but writing the house rules on a piece of paper & sticking them up for everyone to see is a good way to go. That way, they're very visable & will help stop little "slips" back into old habits until the new good behaviours are established & ingrained. (I'm assuming Dano is a human & is old enough to read)

    So Dano is "plan B" & the path of least resistance to getting what she wants because she knows she can't get around you ??
