So my mom was saying how we need to teach Tucker to stop "speaking with his paws" so much lol. In other words if you have a toy, treat, oy your just not paying attention to him Tucker will come up and smack you in the face with one or both paws. Lol its funny to watch but it hurts when its you getting b!tch slapped by the Cocker Spaniel lol. Anyways so today I decided we would start work on this. Now with me he doesen't beg at and when I have a treat for him he knows he has to work for it. Opposed to my mom who is totally wrapped around his little paw . So sitting for a treat with me is no problem amd respecting me if no problem. He has always veiwed me as alpha I guess because he definatly listens to me best and loves on her the most. Anyways so today we were playing fetch. Tucker is like a bossy little kid when it comes to his toys in other words no other dogs can play with them and if you take to long to through it he will slap you. So we played fetch for a good hour and I made him sit each time before I would throw his toy. If he would go to rear up or slap me I would correct him. My mom of course sat right there but was too interested in tv to really pay attention to what I was doing. So I got annoyed and shoved the toy into my moms hand and said "here you try it then". And of course I watch that whole hour of training go down the drain . My mom tells Tucker to sit which she doesent do the right way. And she says it in a bored not so interested voice. So I got annoyed and said from off to the side in a commanding voice "Tucker SIT" and he sat right down staring at my mom. I tried to train them both alittle more but my mom is such a push over when it comes to Tucker and stopped making him sit and just was tossing his toy like always and he was getting smacky. When I tried to tell her that she wasent fixing his smacking habit she bit my head off. I hate trying to teach her cause she can't take the time to learn or care enough to learn. If it werent for me Tucker would be a nightmare but I was been working with him since he was a pup. I have tried so many times to get her involved and she does to a point. Sorry just a little rant.
