how is he when your family eats in front of him?CowBella said:I know he is a BULLdog.. and being such, I expect him to be stubborn. I know that eventually I can win him over... but my real concern is for the rest of the family. I don't want him to perceive that he and I are the alphas, and the rest of the family are subordinants. Does that make sense? If I am having trouble getting him to relent, with me being his primary caregiver, then what chance does my toddler have? Or my clueless teenager?
