:)Hi guys
For the last two evenings whilst eating my dinner, Q has started to turn into a fruit loop. He either does the 'play bow' in front of me and puppy barks constantly or stealth bombs my feet.
I know the alpha thing is for me is to eat first but i generally feed Q after we come back from our walk.(aroound 5pmish) He then generally settles down for an hour or so on his bed ususally leaving me in peace to eat mine.
He is good with the word NO! but ignored me and kept carrying on and so i popped him out in the garden for ten minutes until i had finished.
Im feeding him as the dog feed states and i know he is a good weight he got weighed at the vets last week (18kg) ( (5 months)
Is there anything else I should have done? I adore him and want him to be the best dog ever! even if he is a bit of a loop.
Cheers

Q, wish I could offer some advice, but we're in sort of the same boat!  ;)  Our puppy has put a hole in the screen door.  He has to be watched like a hawk, just like a child.

Hopefully someone more expert than you and I will advise on this.

I have long fed mine, put them in their crates, and then fix my supper. One thing is that their crates are not near where I eat.

;) Thanks guys
I think he was just trying it on! He hasnt done it since, so i guess the ten minutes time out worked.
