I feel ya.. when Riley was a puppy I got into so many fights with my family, it was pretty bad. Hearing the phrase "train your dog." would just make my blood boil. They're not dog people at all, so they really had no idea much groundwork is needed for a well-rounded dog.

Any way, my advice would be to stick to your guns. He's your dog you should do whatever you think is best. I also found that it was much easier to train Riley than my family. So if they want to rough house with him, I let them. At the same time, I'd work on Riley's bite inhibition as well as calming down after being riled up. I guess it might've taken more time this way, but I found it a lot less stressful.
