Why should he change?
I give my dog affection and l do silly things with my dogs. BUT... I would not do it to a dog who has some serious issue(s). If a dog already gets lots of physical touch/treats/coddling when he treats you with no respect, when he guards his toy from you, when he bites and growls at you, when he is really demanding and pushy, when he blows you off all the time, when he is aggressive/reactive to people/dogs...- why should he stop? What is his incentive to change his behaviour? So, let's establish a mutually respectful relationship before we give the dog his reward in the form of affection and attention. Thank you.
