Message to Lavendar - First I am offended by your remark about stop hitting my dog. I am not abusive and yes discipline is important. I pat his butt to get his attention and then follow Cesars methods. He is house broken, but as I mentioned he does have control issues from excitement. I tend to agree with the other person that he is making a statement. He does not pee on the Chihuahua who does not let him get near him. What I have been doing is keeping him smack against me and he is not allowed to greet or jump or be next to any body. When he has calmed down I let him visit the person but watch him very carefully. I will not let him jump on them, I would pick him up and explain to him and the person why I removed him from his current position. He knows drop it, but leave it he is still having problems with that. I will have to work on that.
