Glad to see you getting different opinions Kristen. As long as your willing to work with your boy you are good.

As far as the fur mommies who only want positive correction and want to let a dog be a dog, is the worst advice IMO. dogs look to their humans for how to behave if you don't correct and show him how to behave it could take years and you don't have that long your dog is growing and getting stronger.

Like I already said on FB you need to see what type of correction is needed based on his reaction. A leash pop is a correction and your pup is still young. Not much more should required now but as he grows if you don't correct you will need other tools.

If I had listened to PK from the beginning I don't think I would need a prong with my boy now. I think back to waking him and playing with him and knowing what I know now and just SMH at myself lol.

Do you make your kids work comands with the pup? the pup needs to know where he stands in the pack...i have always made my sons work my dogs, feed them with a sit and wait command (with me there of course) so the dog knows the kids call the shots also. im not sure if im of any help..performance helped me work through some mild DA issues when my pup was just little..a verry smart person when it comes to dogs hopefull u get her/his reply.
I like this idea. It is important that the dog know that the kids are higher up than him. My brother did this with his pup with his son and it has worked like a charm.
