Especially if it is not your own ideal.
The person I like got a drever pup. It sort of means we got it, where I feel like the parent whose kids beg for a puppy and "they'll look after it" - only for the parents to end up taking the dog for walks.
I appreciate the individual pup is probably beyond exceptional as far as individual character goes, but this breed only has a given master or mistress; and obviously it should be the one that will take it to hunt, and not me.
So whereas the puppy follows him pretty well on a leash to woods where it can be set free, I had to condition it with knackwurst to get over from sitting on its bum, or alternatively my carrying it.
This has worked quite well - only the dog today protested by getting under my feet when I chose a narrow path, and nibbling on my pant legs to demand for more.
Indeed: I'd never choose a dog for myself, but I did not reward the bad behaviour, but tipped the puppy on its back until it stopped biting, telling it to be nice on a "disappointed cum commanding" voice.
For a breed greedy but not keen to please (par maybe one) - do you have tips?
I hate this leadership struggle which I needs must win, for sake of us both.
