The family has a shih tzu and our dog doesnt act like what the articles say it should act like...The dog snaps at you when you try to pick it up(sometimes). And if you try to mve the bowl while the dog is eating--it growls and sometimes it even bites you. But you cant pop it because it jumps up and try to punish you itself..hahahahahaha.......what do you thin I should do to punish the dog.!!!!!!hit me up with a message
You have a very alpha dog who thinks he is boss. It takes a different kind of thinking to work with him. We have a poodle in rescue right now who acts like that. Hopefully he will one day get a home.
I would suggest a personal trainer, one who will come to your house. We used a spray bottle for alot of corrections. He couldn't jump up and bite us from afar. I can't help you with the food issue, we just don't take his food away. We also wont let him go to a home with childern becuase of this. good luck
