I got a golden/lab mix when he was 12 weeks and I was pregnant, I took the months during my pregnancy to train him and he was well trained, listened, used the bathroom outside, was able to go all night without using the bathroom, would wait for me to wake up in the morning or would wake me up if he could no longer hold it to take him outside and waited for his food. When I went to go give birth, I left him with my mother and father in law and my significant others sister who shared a part in taking care and training him as we both decided to get him together. When I came back it was as if I never trained him at all. He was using the bathroom inside the house, jumping on people, not listening. It’s been 3 months and He’s constantly given attention and I take him out 3 times a day for walks not counting the times he’s taken outside for the restroom. He’s still not listening to anyone regardless of training, stealing food off the counters, jumping on people, running into the street when taken out into the backyard, fighting with the dog that was already in the household before we got him, stealing all the babies clothes and toys regardless of being shown that those are not his and that he needs to behave around the baby, trying to nibble at her feet, jumping on the bed when she’s laying there, he has me worried as I can’t risk having a dog that’s going to hurt my child. he’s gotten better with the usage of the bathroom inside the house. He’s 7 months. I don’t know what to do anymore, I don’t have the money to pay for obedience classes as I am not working right now and the most i can pay for is his vet and I really don’t want to give my dog away.
