Since Maverick came back from his boarding kennel a couple of weeks ago he has had a change in attitude. He isnt a bad dog now but he is testing a lot of boundries that he didnt before. For example he has started to back take me when i try and tell him to go for potty..he will do a little boxer boy and try and initiate a wrestling match. He also ignores me more freaquently now. I really think this is a behavior issue and nothing medical..he is 10 mo almost and it seems like he is testing boundries and being a bratty teenage. What can i do to change this? So far i have tried to give him a lot of love when he is being good and we have been praciticing more on his training. Now that the weather is getting better there will be more walks to wear him down but am i doing the right things or is there something else to do? Obviously a lot has changed in the last 3 weeks...he had his stay at a boarding kennel, daddy got stopped at the boarder and was missing for a week, then we got married and i got phd accepted so weve been rushing around trying to plan things as well as this all happened when we were trying to transition maverick out of his crate for sleeping......Sorry this was all jumbled i just want to know if im doing the right things and what else i should do.
