    I have no doubt that a GSD or rottie would have the same jaw strength as Jackson, I've just never seen it in action. I thought that he didn't let go because he couldn't, not because he's an idiot. He's just obsessive I guess.

    I can't tell my sister how to raise her kids, I can only enforce my own rules on them. She does this stuff all the time. Tells him 'once more and it's a time out' then forgets, or tells him to do something and doesn't follow through. It's really annoying.

    I guess it's also the frustration of having them here for nearly 4 months now. Before this they lived in Darwin, so we saw them for 4 weeks every year and that was it. I've gone from knowing no kids, never seeing any as I'm the youngest out of everyone we know, to living with two! (or three if you count BIL lol).

    Thanks for listening

    LOL at hanging on.

    My foxy/shih tzu x will hang n to a rope fr dear life. I can pick her up and swing her round and she will hold on. While sme dogs do have a much bigger bite force than others, when it cmes to holding on, I think it has a lot to do with determinatin and how much the dog wants what it is hanging off lol

    The kid has learned that by ignoring his mother he gets what he wants and has now been shown that screaming and swearing can make someone (your BIL) back down.

    I'm not goddamn perfect. I am normally a very, very patient person, but I'm sick and grumpy and have definitely reached the end of my rope. It's easy to say do all this stuff, but when you're dealing with it 24/7 it's a lot harder. I'm 22, and I have a heart condition, so kids might not even be on the cards for me. If they were 100%, I definitely wouldn't be ready for them now.

    I'm not raising these kids, I'm only setting the rules of my house and more importantly, the rules when it comes to interacting with the dogs. If the BIL was so concerned about teaching his son the right way to communicate (which is his responsibility not mine), he wouldn't have told me to get stuffed. In fact, he'd probably have more respect for everyone in the house. The other day he took 4yo to the football. He found a purple wrist band in my mums room, wrote his phone number on it in pen and sticky taped it to his son.
    That band was from the campaign for one of our very close family friends who died of cancer earlier this year. My mum bought two so when the one she wears every day needs to be retired, she has another one. He went into her room and took that, then pleaded innocent and claimed it was just laying around, but admitted it was in her BEDROOM. My Mum was really upset, and BIL doesn't give a crap because if it's in the house, it must be free for all.

    I'm not raising these children, and I'm not wasting my time and effort on things that BIL is going to ignore and crap all over anyway. The rules when it comes to the dogs are simple and for everyone except 4yo it seems, easy to follow. He's normally a great kid, so I have no idea why he thinks it's acceptable to behave this way. Even the 1yo understands how to treat the dogs.

    It is up to your parents too to set some boundaries, it is, after all, their home.. Of course you are not raising these kids but you can lead by example.

    I hope the home situation can be resolved soon as it sounds hard for everyone.
