I would say he needs some basic sit/stay obedience. Technically, rushing through the door like that is lack of respect. That doesn't mean he doesn't love you and generally respect you! Just in this situation. I'd try being on his side of the door. Getting a calm sit and focus on you before you even touch the door. Go through that until you can touch the door, open it, and he waits for your command to enter. That's how we resolved it with 3 bulldogs in our household! It's just safer.

That is so wrong, I'm sorry. That is REWARDING her in the dogs eyes. Rewarding her for charging through the doorway... Idk how anyone could see that as training.

Thanks! Sometimes when I leave my mom in charge of readying the dogs for a walk she'll think that the harnesses are unnecessary D: They end up choking and we have to carry them -_- I agree that all small dogs should wear harnesses when leashed.

I agree with you...and want to. But I have a hairless Chinese Crested and have to orderbon line. Her chest is so deep and her neck so skinny (plus buckles would rub her raw) that I'm having a heck of a time finding one. I could get her one of those mesh ones but they don't fit her well at all. And it gets VERY hot here in the summer so a vest harness would be torture. I'm actually thinking about trying to rig something up on my own,

Monkeyface - HMPK male and Casper - DTHMPK male
Floyd and Bernie - both CT males
Troy Donohue - RIP
Ft. Knox Al- OHM male
Tic-Tac - female Chinese Crested dog

Yeah, I have 2
Lyla and Murphy
I might be getting this big fella soon

Aint she beautiful? I asked if they could name her Rocky for me, because I am the one who will be getting her, and my older brother ALWAYS gets to name the family dogs. So I asked the shelter. Lets see what they say. ;) Anyway, supper excited to get her! She is super sweet and has a heart on her back, one blue eye, one brown. We called them, now we are waiting for a reply. Cant wait!

Murphy



Meow, my beta fish, passed :( He was flushed. Sagwa and I where at his funeral. Mom did not bring me to get another, but we shouldn't get one at Petco... Anyway, I will keep you updated on that
And I still have one, Jaws, but I have to share him with my mom
pic is of my cat (not profile pic, but pic in signature) Sagwa. (She would never EVER hurt or kill a fish. She only kills moths and by accident.)

I love medium to big dogs because if you get a small chihuahua you might squish it. That happened to my friend once. By the way cute dogs!
