oh thank you! ya i corrected him real quick and he hasn't done it since. and with the food thing, he got over it too....i would stop when he started to advance towards me and say back up, and ide wait until he listened, then moved forward, ect. now he just waits for me to put the food up there and when i say it's ok, he eats. it sounds meaner than it is, but it has worked so far. thanks again!
hope you are getting some good advice blu!
