I have a 11 year old male/Old English Sheep dog that bites me everytime I try to bring him inside from a thunder storm.

He Barks and Barks and runs around in circles(like he is crazy!) when there is a thunder storm. He refuses to come in side. When I try to grab his collar to bring him in, he turns around and bites me.He then rolls over to let me know he does not want to come inside. Mean while the neighbors constanly complain about his excessive barking. What can I do?

Confused and frustrated!

Has he been biting you for 11 years??

Many dogs do not like being grabbed by the collar. I suggest you go out and put his leash on and walk him inside.

I agree with LR. Also, perhaps you could bring him in prior to the storm starting or when it looks like it's going to happen?
