    Pleaseeeee pleaseeee help!! Can you answer my question please

    I need help SMH

    My Shih Tzu is soooo stubborn.

    I taught him Fetch at 4 months… a perfect game. 1. Submissively sitting w/ eye contact 2. Retrieval 3. Leaving it immediately 4. Sitting submissively again with eye contact

    And now he is 10 months…. and omg he has been TRYING ME these last couple of weeks. He went through a phase of retrieving it and then trotting off to play by himself.

    Reading Cesars Book it said that Pack leaders START and END the game. And End it while he is still happily playing.

    So I got two “bones” now and when he would retrieve it, I would tempt him to bring it back and throw the other bone so that he will drop the one he has and continue the game.

    This worked for like a week… but NOW, I will throw the “stick” and he will run to it… only to not pick it up and turns back towards me and goes about his business doing whatever he wants (which is usually him just sitting back down near the backdoor) and he will NOT play fetch anymore. I did not get frustrated, yell, scream, punish him…. but I felt like I had to make him follow through, at least ending the interaction with me in control…

    But he is SO STUBBORN. I can put his e collar on and have the vibration on high with me issuing the command and staying calm and assertive, but continuing to vibrate and issue the command.

    His tail is not in between his legs at all, and he is crouched a little while he tries to avoid me. (I don’t run behind him, I simply continue to follow wherever he goes walking away from me and telling him the command he knows: “Fetch, or Go Get It” and he just absolutely REFUSES.

    Please Help! What is going on!??

    Do you have any recommendations for exercises for Addison’s Disease dogs?

    I would take advice of ANY kind from someone who displays a picture of OBAMA! You worry about mutt dogs but have no issue with those who support murdering babies!

    What are your thoughts on giving a dog a treat when they get upset about seeing another dog? Almost like trying to make them associate seeing a new dog as a good thing.
