1. Do not bully the dog, your trying to win his trust??? Pushing him down on his back is not going to achieve this. 2. Don't hurt the dog or punish, start with NILIF, drop it and take it exercises. But start with treats that he isn't as excited about(Maybe a regular treat in exchange for a peice of hotdog, when he has something, offer something better, he should drop it (you take it) give him what you have, and then give him back the original thing. Use commands like take it and give it, give lots of prasie for calm behavior.Do this several time a day.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
You may not be a child, but I've seen your type before. Someone who didn't research the breeds traits before getting it, or bother trying to train it/socialize it properly. http://www.nextdaypets.com/directory/breeds/1100206/ "Temperament: The Pomeranian is confident, commanding, and outgoing. Due to the Pomeranians small stature they are not recommended for homes with small children as they may become temperamental. They make excellent guard dogs and will sound a bark when they sense danger."
Now you are not hearing the quick fix you want now that you feel things are getting a little out of control, so I give you about 2-3 months before you dump that dog on someone else because you couldn't take the time to LISTEN to the advice being given to you and try a different technique besides grabbing a treat from a snarling dog, then giving it back and doing it all over again. So inevitably, the dog bit someone in your precious family because you refused to suck up your ego and not worry about a way I might have phrased something. Yes, blaming me for your woes is very productive...
I have a hard time believing you clicked on those links because a light bulb would have gone off and at least a thing or two would have sunk in before you posted your last question.
Get up, smile, find a need, wash your hair, bleach your teeth, Develop habit, Automatic. Compromise, build a bridge, Sacrifice, sacrilege, Sell yourself, Automatic.
You asked for advice, you got it! If the dog passed OB with flying colors I sure wouldn't take my dog to that course if he is attacking you viciously.
Blaze was a nipper when I started with the treats and training. I suppose she was to excited or just a little pig that she is.
I read on TP to push the treat in her mouth, don't let her take it and low and behold it worked. She now eats sweetly out of my hand.
I myself do not know how to correct about the toys but I sure wouldn't be telling off the people who where trying to help. Reread and learn, you are doing something wrong and TP was only trying to help you!

Bones, all of us have the best intentions for the training of your dog. Maybe you don't appreciate the manner in which some of the advice was given, but it was all meant to help you with your dog. Please remove the insults from your edits to your postings, they are offensive and totally unacceptable, there are younger children on the forum.
