Here is my question (and dilemma)... Should I take him to my in-laws with two untrained dogs? Where she may let him out for about 30 minutes or so a day for washroom breaks, and a little play time (if constant nipping, snarling & biting is considered play, this hasn't stopped for past month). Then back into crate or I should I leave him at home in crate until I get home, and do some bonding, quality playing, along with training and avoid throwing up?
I know you will have a short answer. I just wanted to make sure you were made aware of circumstances, to better judge me. I've followed EVERYTHING you say to do (ok, except couch bit-- that is my wife's little bonding moment with him.) Again many, many thanks from Martinez family, from Canada eh. For those people questioning if they should buy book.... There is no need to question... Just buy book...!!!! I live in east coast and spent best darn $90 Canadian for these books and tapes... It's more than worth it...
Thank you for your patience... and God bless you, your family and team.
Thanks for kind words.
I may be off mark here, but I think that question you're really asking is, "Will my mother-in-law's 'too-easy' house rules undo my dog's training?"
And answer is: No, you have nothing to worry about.
However, your dog may start doing things that he NEVER DOES at home. But it's just like a child who goes to Grandma's house and gets away with all kinds of rotten behavior... because she can! But upon returning home, she's smart enough to know that YOUR house rules apply.
But often times, upon coming home, dog will try to test you to figure out if lax rules at Grandma's house are now same at home. And as long as you're consistent and motivational, it should only take correcting dog for any unwanted behavior ONCE and dog will immediately remember that old house rules IN YOUR HOUSE are to be respected.
