    Well I hope they are are a Troll because if not they just got a rude wake up call from some people!! "Shakes head"

    To the Op, if your not jerking the chain here, I would honestly say throwing the food on the roof is a bit silly. My brick head girl would forget you even put it there about 3 seconds later so really it would serve no purpose but to stink out your yard when it rots!

    I would say for the wondering, lots and lots of exercise and social interaction with other dogs and get your boy desexed.

    Trolling? I can't believe I've come to this forum for a bit of support and advice, and been ridiculed like this.

    Bulldog_Lover, thanks for your advice - but let me assure you and and all other forum members that I am not 'jerking the chain' when I say I have thrown Scotty's food on the shed roof.
    After being told on this forum that he needs to learn that he's at the bottom of the heirachy, that's all I was trying to achieve!
    I agree 100% that he needs to know he is at the bottom of the heirachy.

    We've started to train Scotty to sit in the last few days, but he has a long way to go yet.
    When he sits after we give him the command, we reward him with a liver treat which he seems to love... Hopefully soon enough he will be sitting as he's told to do, just from hearing the command - not after hearing the command and one of us having to push down on his back to give him the hint to sit.

    We've been walking Scotty in the afternoons on the lead. He does tend to get a bit excited and pull on his lead to the extent where he chokes himself when he sees other dogs, but I think this is normal - right?
    We've been trying to correct this issue by yanking back on his lead when he does this. We figured that as this makes him cough he will remember not to pull hard on his lead when out for walks.

    I'm totally unsure as to why people on this forum think that this is a prank thread. We thought we were doing the right thing by bringing Scotty into our house and into our lives, and now all we're after is some good advice to ensure he is raised correctly.

    Insted of using a choker chain try a gentle leader (I use on rotties) or a no pull harness. So he doesn't pull your arm off.

    Im not trying to sound rude/ mean but what does throwing the food on the roof accomplish in making him lower than u in the pack. You would be better off making him sit and watch u eat you food before having his. I would think my dogs would think what the $&@& if I threw their food on the shed roof and would prob hurt themselves trying to get it. I just don't see the purpose of it

    Insted of pushing his back down to sit. Bring a treat from his nose and over his head so he looks up and bum goes down. Hard to explain but google how to get a dog to sit.

    Other ways of making him lower include making him work for food.
    Ignoring him when doing bad behaviours
    And heaps more

    If you are being serious, and I doubt you are...

    Try NILIF to help you with your heirarchy issues.

    Book yourself into an obedience school & persist with it.

    If he has not had daily training he needs to learn how to learn.

    A much faster way to train basic commands is to use the treat to lure the dog into position. Read the basics here: Dog Star Daily

    I still believe that you are being a troll & will continue to hold this theory because in all honesty I cannot believe that there truly are people so, well, thick as to believe that putting your dogs food on the roof of the shed will teach him you're higher in rank than he/she is.

    What a load of rot. How brain dead would someone have to be to come up with the concept of throwing food on a roof to show superiority or hirearchy. BULL****!

    Judge Judy often says "when something doesn't make sense, it is because it is a lie"and what you have said is a LIE!
