A very simple fix for the bathroom garbage situation... keep the bathroom door shut! If that's too much trouble, switch to the kind of garbage container that opens with a foot pedal. For the kitchen garbage definitely switch to a foot pedal garbage bin.

Dogs come with all types of personalities... the way you are dealing with your dog would be ok with a thick skinned independent dog (except the spanking, Never hit a dog) but you have a very sensitive, fearful dog. NO, you are not babying him too much... you're not babying him enough!

Lots of love and affection, being your dogs "safe haven" creates a more confident dog. When your dog is fearful or hesitant give him love and a feeling of safety... petting and speaking calmly with him and don't force him into interactions he doesn't want. For some dogs "their person" is all they want in life and many people would love having a dog that is so loyal to them.

Go to youtube and watch some of the kikopup training videos... this is a good introduction https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIEjuu0STf4
