Then, it is time to go back to Lewis’s wheel house and get stuck right into a second week of…

DOMINANCE!

Are dogs pack animals?

Why is punishment not useful?

Why won’t dog’s come when called?

Growling on the bed?

Stealing objects?

Aggressive Puppies at the vet?

Pulling on the lead?

Aggression around the food bowl?

Feeding the people before the dog?

Walking through doorways first?

Should nurses try and hide the chocolates from the vets? (Or at least from Robbie?)
