You mentioned you had a grown daughter, so think of raising Bijou the same way. With human children you have to set boundaries, enforce rules, etc., to protect them from harm and raise them to be good, responsible, well adjusted adults. You have to set yourself up as the authority figure to accomplish this.

This doesn't mean you love them less. In fact, it shows just how much you do love them.

Believe me, it's much easier with dogs than kids! Dogs are naturally pack animals so they look for a leader to make them feel safe just as if they were out in the wild.

We did a book club this winter with Donaldson's book [/I]The Culture Clash. It's a wonderful book to help you understand how dogs think so you can train them more effectively. It might be very helpful for you.

Amazon.com has it for less than $13. That's a lot less than most of us paid for it last winter!

I just ordered Culture Clash and Power of Positive Dog Training. Both books looked good and the positive dog training book also addressed separation anxiety, not to mention that I can take advantage of the super saver option of free shipping on orders of $25.00 or more.
