He’s already made a lot of progress. He made it through a whole work day in the crate with no accidents and has changed his attitude toward Mike 180 degrees. I think he thought he was the alpha dog, so just a few simple things like controlling access to his food bowl and making him sit and shake for a treat or a toy have already helped immensely. We let him spend his first night on the bed, and though he stayed at the foot and wasn’t a pain, he’s a little too big for that, plus it might contribute to him thinking he’s our equal. So we got him a doggie bed, and it only took a couple of tries before he stayed, and he stayed all night. Right next to my open closet door, with slippers that could have been chewed sitting right there. He is a good dog! We need to do some further training on the begging for food while we’re eating, but he’s not nearly as persistent as another rowdy beagle we know.
