So I don't know if any of you petsit at all, or have been in similar situations, but I just thought I'd put it out there in case anyone has some words of wisdom... I petsit for a few of the clients at the clinic where I work for some extra money. This dog I'm staying with right now is, I think, spoiled and has never really been difficult. The lady basically treats him like he's the king of the house and lets him do whatever he wants. You can tell he doesn't understand "no" or "stop." For example, he scratches and tears up the couch and jumps on the coffee table. So when he does that, I know she doesn't want him to, so I try to get him to stop by gently pushing him away from the couch and saying "NO." He's about a year and a half, so realistically I know that what I'm doing over 4 days won't help him unlearn it, but I still feel like I should try. Usually after I try to stop him a few times, he starts to growl and bark and tries to bite me. So I guess my question is, does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this dog? I know I only have to deal with him for a few days at a time, but she's going away quite a few times this summer and I'd rather not get bitten every time. Thanks for any advice you can give!
