    As most of you will Know Martin my bf works away from home alot! He uses this as an excuse to spoil Gus when he comes back!! Feeding from the table etc!! Really annoys me!!! :mad: I then have to spend all week getting Gus out of these habits again, only for him to ruin it at the weekend!!
    So this means WAR!!! I have brought a pack of Post it notes and have written little phrases on them and stuck them all over the house!!!
    For example on the fridge there is a note that say's "Gus is not allowed in here to choose what he likes!!" Yeah Martin does let him pick things from the fridge! :eek:
    Stuck to the dinner table there is a note that says "No feeding Gus from here EVER!!" :D
    He's going to go mad when he comes home! It's like a sea of yellow notes in our house at the moment!! :D
    Just thought I'd share! It's making me chuckle, just thinking what his reaction will be like!! Lol

    OK, has Gus taken all the notes away. I think Max is sending him signals to remove all posted notes so he can still be spoiled by Martin.

    ROFLOL!!!!! Maybe you'll have to resort to having a serious discussion about YOUR dog and how important it is to you that he develop good habits and manners and that he understands that he is not the "alpha," but you are. And letting him get away with these types of things is undermining your training and your relationship with your dog and you hope that it won't continue to undermine the relationship between bf and you. LOL.
