Only have done this a could times when she has gone beyond the point and it seems to work in this instance. BUT she was challenging her role as alpha and that was a problem. I wish I was better at this stuff,I just know what worked when we had problems and our problems weren't this. Now with Cutty even when being cute and sweet when he was young nothing caught his attention until I started with a AUGHT type of sound.hard to write it in word tho. Is is the sound I still make when they are busted and they always respond but until this sounds was completely ignored.maybe a diff loud sound will help? Also I do think with Miila I knew the damage she could do,having been bitty her already.i wasn't afraid in the slightest and she knew that so she had no choice but to respond. Had Cutty challenged me back in the day I am not sure I would have had that confidence Nd things could have been much diff. Thankfully we never had that problem occur or who knows where we would be.
    I was thinking of going all Xena the Warrior Princess on Remi. Hahahahhahaha..... AIAIAIAIIAIAAEEEEEEEEE.

    Our little pups continue to challenge us to see what the rules are. Every thing you write I have been through with Miss Tallulah at some point. Some days I worried my fur baby would become a monster if i did the wrong things. She turns 1 on Friday and is mellowing right out, not that she was ever really bad or aggressive. I would always imagine the worst, that she would turn out mean or aggressive because I missed a cue or did something wrong in her training. When Miss T was 4 months old I enrolled her in Puppy Manners 1 and then Puppy Manners 2 when she passed PM1. I was taught to manage, distract and reward. A lot of the domination stuff doesn' t seem to work with Bullies because they were a fighting breed and will never give up, so rolls stares etc to show dominance often will not work as it does with other breeds. Cesar Millan actually just said that today about Bulies on DW. So if she growled I would turn my back or leave the room for a few minutes and she would be bewildered. If she was getting aggressive or mouthy/bitey I would put her in her pen to chill out and then let her out after she was relaxed. I would also walk by the pen if she was relaxed and give her a treat to rewards her for behaviour I wanted. My trainer encouraged me not stare her down or shout maybe because she is a Bully - again the fighting breed thing. By distracting and managing unwanted behaviour and rewarding good behaviour I was taught to shape the things you want and the distract/ manage allowed me time to regroup, let go of the frustration we all feel sometimes and restore my inner balance. If any of this I learned makes sense for you please know I am happy to be able to share what helped me get through the puppy tests. I know one thing for sure and that is your heart is in the right place and you love Remi and want to do what is right for him to be a loving gentle Bully.

    Thanks so much for sharing your story. Being a perfectionist sucks, doesn't it?? We all just want to do the right thing and it makes us a little batty. All so we can say we're good bully moms

    Can you possibley tire his little butt out, a tired dog is a good dog. He sounds high energy puppy stage, just before the hormones set in.
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered

    We actually tried at one point to take him on 3 walks in one day, for about a week, 2 in the late afternoon/evening. Getting more and more tired seems to make him act even more crazyyyyy. Isn't that nuts??
