My old dog died a couple months ago.
Got a rescue puppy who was about 4 months old at the time. Maybe got him a little too soon: I don't know. He was very sweet for the first few days, and has been nothing but a royal pain the butt since.
He's now gone through a six week training, he gets a big exercise at least once a day.
He's a little over six months, and has stopped teething, so I'm really losing my patience with him biting everything and sticking everything in his mouth.
I've had puppies before and they were about a billion times easier. He's a bully. He bullies guests around, he tries to bully me around. He's super destructive. He barks all the time. He will be really sweet for about 30 seconds at a time, then decides he has to bite the person unlucky enough to be petting him.
I'm really fed up with this dog, and I really feel terrible about it, but I'm really at the end of my rope with him.
Does anyone have any advice or tricks?
He's generally fine out in public, but as soon as he gets 'comfortable', whether it's at home, in the care, or at someone else's house, he becomes pretty mean and destructive
I don't want to get rid of him, on the otherhand, he's nothing but a source of stress, and I feel like it's not fair to be 'angry' and 'resentful' of your pet, but that's where I'm getting.
