I understood clearly what you meant. Yes allowing the child to control the feeding is a good idea. However if this is the same child teasing the Shih Tzu I would be very cautious. This dog has a preconception of the kind of behavior to expect from this child. Allowing this child to feed the dog is a great idea; after you teach the child to respect the animal. Feeding is an excellent plan for bonding, but not for repairing a relationship. Please re-read my post Goldfields I think you may have taken offence to something in my post but I meant none. I was suggesting that rewarding the agression was a slippery ,your idea is a practical and effective tool (feeding the dog to bond with it)
