Need some tips.

How can I get Santos to acknowledge the other members of my family?? He is soooo MY dog. He follows me everywhere, and that's fine, but he's not interested in anyone else at all. If I'm in the room, he's cool, but the minute I leave the room, he cries for me even if other people are with him. Piper helps feed him, she has tried working with him, but he's totally non-responsive to any one else. If she's in the room with him alone, he's at the door waiting for me. If I'm with them when she's doing the training (with treats), he's only looking at me...doesn't even pay attention to the treats. The kids are dying to play with him and have him do the things he does with me, but he's not interested at all.

You guys know everything...hook me up with some advice, please.

Kim, Santos & Brew

Hi Kim, it basically comes down to the others taking a roll in some of the training. Here is a great book by Patricia McConnell. http://www.patriciamcconnell.com/pro...-training-book
