Dog Dominating Child

January 13th, 2004, 11:15 AM
I have a Jack Russell/Beagle X who is two years old and still tries to dominate my 9 year old daughter who is with me on weekends and am not sure what to do. Can anyone help.

Since we have no details, I'll assume that this dog has been allowed to think he's in charge of the household. Plus, dogs often do not see children the same way they see adults, and will often try and be equal, or superior, to them.

Here's a link for you. If you start this program, you must stick to it, and everyone in the house must do the same.

How are things going w/your dog and your daughter??

Just wondering if anything changed, and if you looked at the site that LR gave you. That's a great site w/alot of info. Again you do have to stick to it.
