Hi ya,
I'm house sitting two dogs (one matlese the other not) and the maltese dog Otis has started growling at me. I have tried bonding with a toy, walks, ignoring him, eyeballing him (which since read is not good) andthen i kick him out of the house... he just follows me everywhere when he's inside and stares at me.. the other dog has taken to me but Otis is not... I don't know what to do any help please? the owners are OS so I can't talk to them. I have only met the dogs once before so not like they know me very well.
Cheers

Is the dog food motivated? Maybe you could bribe with treats. I'd just ignore him, definitely don't stare at him. He is afraid of you.
