Or I may even pay you to take him...At this point I think rehoming him is the right idea
So Bruce is coming along incredibly, he knows his commands and 90% of the time listens to the harder ones ("come", "stay", "off" when in regards to the cats immediately). "Sit", "down", "look", "off" (when not about the cats) are all flawless with him. He is 16 weeks old tomorrow, so still very much a wild and crazy puppy.
Here's the "problem", when hubby gets home Bruce goes from my angel puppy to this wild eyed, crazy hellion lol. I know exactly why, the husband gets him wound up, and plays with him but NEVER trains or works with him. Bruce is very bitey when he is wound up, he knows now after one try with me, and a stern "AHH" from me that he went too far, but with hubby he just keeps going constantly. I keep telling my darling other half how to handle it, and he will use those tactics maybe one in 10 times, the other 9 times he's all over the place, arms flailing and repeating commands about a million times.
Last night I intervened like I always do, put a leash on Bruce and made him stay next to me until he calmed down. Hubby turned to me, and I kid you not, said "I thought you were going to train that dog, whatever you're doing doesn't work, good job". You can imagine what came next...a LOOOOONG lecture about how my methods are working very well, and that the problem is him, not Bruce (or my training). That he can't expect a playful puppy to understand what he wants if he is not consistent and doesn't show him what is expected. I have explained this a million times to him, how he can't give a million commands, and be all over the place and then never praise when the desired behavior is achieved (Bruce thrives on positive praise, but will take any kind of attention when he wants to play with the hubby so they kind of butt heads there). All he is doing is winding Bruce up and confusing the hell out of him.
Bruce really has a lovely temperament, but when he gets wound up watch out (at least the hubby has to watch out). I swear though, I have repeated myself a million times, the hubby never works WITH me, never does as he's told, and then gets mad at me because the dog doesn't listen to him. Then when I get frustrated because it is clear as day what he is doing wrong with Bruce, he gets mad at me for calling him on it. I told him last night "I'm not magic, you can't expect someone to train your dog and have him be perfect if you won't do YOUR part". Seriously...men, what is wrong with them?!
End of rant, but really if anyone wants a husband...he's great with kids, and cats, fully housebroke but kind of sucks with helping around the house. He DOES own his own business, and works very hard though, so I guess there's that. Let me know.
