    Dog Training and Behavior
    We have had Norman the pug for about two weeks now and he seems to have some food issues. When we feed him breakfast and dinner, we make him sit before we give him his food because he barks, jumps, and scratches us when we are holding his food dish. Sometimes he barks for so long he tires...
