    I think it's the son-in-law that needs training! Your daughter needs to train him to respect you and your pet. Shame on her for allowing him to disrespect you this way even if you are in his home.


    Cheerio mates!

    I totally agree with @2BullyMama and @Blueberrys Mom The past treatment of Sebastion by the NSIL, his negativity, all this is remembered and sensed by him(Seb.). Dogs can easily feel "vibes" and are extremely sensitive to feelings in their living conditions. He is feeling the need to lash out, as he knows there is tension(which can translate to fear) in the situation. He is growing up and feeling the need to protect himself and you in this situation. I don't know if a trainer can help Sebastion in your living situation -I believe that is the root cause of his behavior. You may have to make a choice.......

    I'm so sorry that you and Sebastian have to go through this. My heart breaks for you because I can't imagine living without my Ruckus.

    I dont want want to seem cold either, but I don't think neutering Sebatian will have the effect you are hoping for and I don't see training working very well in this situation. It might help make him a little more comfortable with having the girls in your room, but you're not son in law sounds like he has really done a number on poor Sevastian and you can't train a dog to tolerate abuse. If he does these awful things to Sebastian that you know about, I'd hate to think what you don't know about. If Sebastian doesn't feel safe with everyone in the family he will continue to act out of fear and to protect himself and you against his perceived threat, your NSIL.

    Sebastian needs love, room to exercise, and to be free from torment. Neutering and training won't help there. I wish you all the best and all the best for Sebastian. I know you love him and want him with you, but if you remain in that house, it seems like it might be in Sebastian's best interests to be elsewhere.

    I am not taking anything you say wrong because I know it's true I have been telling my daughter that her man is what's wrong with my dog and it's not fair to him or me . But now Remy is moving and I am so happy !!!

    I'm so happy the son in law is moving and that should help with Sebastian. You may still need a professional trainer to teach you how to deal with him, but as others have said, it would not do any good it the son in law was still there teasing him. I would have kicked him out of my house a long time ago, but that's just me. No body messes with my bullies.

    Such great news for you and your family! I'm glad you didn't have to make the tough decision to give him up. Bye bye not son in law!
