I had some minor issues with Riley which I nipped in the bud. I watched how his mother reprimanded him and copied her. When he tried anything with her, she held him on the ground and held his neck in her mouth. She would also bite him. (not hard enough to do damage, but it got the point across) Well, I’m not going to bite my dog, but a spank on the butt as well as rolling him over and holding his neck for a minute did the trick. He knows who the pack leader is and it’s smooth sailing ahead!
