My dog has it out for me, I am convinced. We have just recently gotten our Weimeraner about a month or so ago. When we first got her she listened well and didn't stray from our side. Now, this dog could careless about me. She'd rather be eating half-dead crickets or eating the cat's poop. <--No, seriously. I am under immense stress as of late due to some personal issues in my life. First, we moved to a new area that I'm very unfamiliar with, my only brother passed away this year, and my husband is serving his 3rd deployment in Iraq. As you can see, my emotional plate is quite full. I knew that Weims were high activity/anxiety, but I know that a well trained Weim is one of the best dogs you can have. Here's a few of my problems: 1. She totally knocks over my youngest son and bites him repeatedly, sometimes even digging into his back with her paws. 2. She'd rather eat the cat's food or feces over her dog food. (Which is high quality btw) 3. She completely ignores my voice. As I said, these are just a few. Today I was at my wit's end and almost called the breeder to take her back. We invested a lot of money into this pup (money we probably shouldn't of spent in the first place) and we have love invested already. I have a puppy book and I've been trying that all day today, but when I talk to my dog she won't even respond to my voice. She licks herself or eats rocks. I got her attentioned for a good 10 minutes today, but I was using tiny treats. We were doing a sit, stay, come learning session. She was doing great, but she knew I had treats in my hand. During this session, I used both voice applauds (good girl! and so forth) and treats as rewards. She only seemed to respond to the treats. Why does she hate me? Someone please help. As you can see, I am very, very desperate.
