Hi! I am searching for any ideas on how to subdue my 12 week old male pom. We have only had him 2 days and now I have noticed he has a very dominate peronality. He is also very food agressive. I have put my hands in his bowl and he will go beserk on me. If I give him a treat he takes it and runs too. I tried breaking it into lil pieces and hand feed him but he still gets mad at me. Also he is very dominate - Thinks he is the boss. If you roll him over on his back he bites & struggles for along time till he gives up too. He is going to get neutered in 2 weeks. Any help here? Agression and Dominant I am wondering what to do! Thanks!
Thanks! I worked all day day with Toby with the suggestions on that site, and you know what? It worked! I am wondering if he was just feeling unsure coming from a kennel situation to a home? Now also I make sure he sits before treats are given and then I pet him constantly while he is chewing it all over his face & head and even rub by his mouth. We haven't had a problem yet. AND he learned to sit in one day!!! LOL He is soooo cute! So thanks for the suggestion to that site.
You may also find that once he is fixed he will calm down a bit. The key is to be consistent, the site that scout gave you works wonders. It may sound mean but they are like kids that need rules and limits and actually seek it.
