Oh my Buns. He is the cutest isn’t he! I love him dearly, and he is the sweetest thing ever. The thing about Buns is he has little dog syndrome aka he barks constantly, he is super needy, and spoiled.

I didn’t tell you guys yet, but we were trying to adopt a dog from the Humane Society that I volunteer at. It didn’t work out, because she went to a family without another dog. Because Bunny can be difficult. So I made a proactive decision to get him a trainer, to train us and to train him. And so far…it is working, but he has become quite unsure of what is going on and is a little meek. I am really worried that he is losing his personality, but then what part of his personality was just demanding and spoiled?

Any thoughts/ideas/input here from you guys would be fab. We are only 2 days into training, and the ideas are simple, straightforward and do not cause him any real discomfort except maybe being meek. (The trainer we have has a no choke chain/clicker/prong collars/treats/physical discipline etc. so don’t worry!). The training mostly involves around us growling, and clapping/stomping/throwing these small pillow pouches over his head.

Being one of his Mama’s I am a bit worried, but we will see how it goes. The barking has seriously lessened, and he is obeying (mostly), he is really good on walks..but we are working on fear aggression with other dogs.

Ugh.That is my life. My poor baby…

  1. He’ll be great and if you’re happy he’ll probably respond to that. I’m training my new puppy right now and it’s a lot of work. I have to tell myself that it takes time. Keep us posted.

  2. You are doing the right thing. Once he learns what is acceptable and what is not, he will be more happy. I have 3 dogs; 2 of them adopted from rescue. They have issues and it took a while but they are slowly getting used to each other. Jealousy is a major problem; they are all 3 girls. I love them all but it is a lot to handle. He is totally adorable by the way.
