Hi, my dog is a 6-month-old Boxer puppy, he is really protective around my parents and thanks to this protective behaviour, I can't spend any time with my parents! What should I do?
I’m 14, I don’t have a crate. It mostly happens when I lean over to kiss my parents in bed, and when i go near them when they eat.I don't know how old you are, but it concerns me when someone says they can't spend time with their parents because of their dog. Chances are, you still need your parents, even if you are slightly older. A dog should add to family bonds, not take away from them. You should be able to spend time with your parents, even if that means putting the dog in a crate or in another room until you can teach him how to behave appropriately when you are all together.
But most importantly, your dog is still very young. He will need to learn what is appropriate behavior in your family. For example, he needs to learn that when he is with you and your parents, he needs to be calm. You and/or your parents will have to teach this kindly, patiently, but consistently. This might mean teaching the dog to settle on his mat, or removing him or yourselves if can't stay calm, or maybe just tweaking the way you play or communicate with your dog so that it's clearer to him what you expect.
As other members have said, it would be helpful to know more details about what exactly is going on, so that you can get some training ideas that are tailored to your dog and you. But often enough, 6 month old dogs just need to learn some manners. Since you say he is your dog, are you responsible for training him or are your parents willing to help you?
When people say "the training is not working" it means one of two things:The training is not working! I'm at breaking point with this!
