    Ive been making him sit and wait or do paw when i put his breakfast down (i cant hand feed as he has wet food for breakfast)
    Instead of him jumpin up on the bed / sofa i make sure he sits and waits until he is invited up.
    Coming up/down stairs i make him wait until ive gone up/down and the stairway is clear for him to go AFTER me.
    Playing is band at the moment if he wants a mad half hour he can with his kong toy but me & hubby do not play with him for now.
    Fusses - he only has a fuss now if we sit on the floor and we make him lay down next to us (not on us!)
    We have been making him go to bed to calm down and yesterday he even went into bed just to lay down quiet by himself !
    He also got put to the test yesterday as we had a visitor and even though i had to do it about 10 times making him lay down quiet in bed.. He eventually gave up and stayed there.
    Im refusing to get frustrated now im not giving in to him and hes definately not going to be boss around here!
    Ooh ive also been out yesterday for a few hours and he didnt chew anything yay :-) xx
    Nice work... stay strong and consistent. And be sure everyone in the house is on the same page with the triaining. Banks is 7+ yrs old and we STILL have to keep her in check everyday.
    There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your lif
