My little Bodhi, while she is a sweetheart, does try to get her own way quite alot. We do have her under control, and we are trying to make sure she knows who is boss. I think she will turn out just fine, but want everything done right! She has already learnt sit, bed, no (sort of - she tries to push it occasionally), dinner, and we are working on lie down! We have rules and methods in place, and with out listing them all here, what tips can you give me to ensure we stay boss? We eat first, pretend to eat out of her bowl before we feed her, make her sit before food, cuddles, going through the door etc.. We have just introduced her to a crate (last night) and I think she will be ready to sleep in there in a week. She picks stuff up really quickly, and is totally comfortable with it already. Fed brekkie in there, and her bed is already in there (leave the door open for her). BF is at home and has said she is already happy to stay in there for a few mins, no crying, stress, just sits happily. Also how can we discourage mouthing? From day 1 we have not let her chew our hands, or us in general, but she does try quite often. Is this something she will just grow out of?
