Drooling on the couch: It's a dog-meet-shrink world.
Hard to tell who Mr Tevlin is more annoyed with, his dog or his wife. : )
Misbehaven dogs usually reflect lazy owners.
This was a rescue dog. Yes, a lot of problems people have with their dog are due to their training from when they were a pupy but, what do you do when you get a dog from a shelter? That has already had a previous owner that failed the dog by either not treating it properly or not training it?
All my pets are from rescue, so while I'm not that experienced, I do have a few tricks in my arsenal. Separation issues: The dog or cat gets a treat when you leave and ignored when you come back. I didn't have to do such intensive training as Mr. Tevlin did (and more power to him!) but that treat when you leave business really worked for us. (Sheltie, serious about guarding his people and felt he needed them in sight to do his job)
