How do you unspoiled the most spoiled? My darling "angela" is a 4 year yorkie. She is the baby, and is spoiled. She has everything and anything she wants. I made the mistake of spoiling her rotten, and now I am paying dearly. But you see, she was spoiled from the beginning. She was given to me by a friend of mine when she was about a year old. She was sO very spoiled, I had to discipline her when she became mine. She did not listen to any commands, and felt the whole house was her urine basket. After a month, she began to understand who was boss. DONT TAKE ME WRONG, I DID NOT ABUSE HER! Now, she is very attached to me, and will be very sad if i leave her at home. SHe just looks out the window, sleeps in my bed (or on my clothes) AND will not eat or pee on her peepad until someone comes home. Which is usually 1-4 hrs later. Now that I have a boyfriend, she has to sit/lay inbetween us and will get agressive if i try to touch my boyfriend. (She is more attached to him now since he takes care of her most of the time) She will bite me and bark at me like I am a stranger about to hit her, IF i try to touch him while hes sleeping. She is aggressive and overprotective. She doesnt like it when i go near her food bowl either! She will bite or attack anyone unless she knows its to fill her bowl. But, at tthe same time, she is aggressive to others when it comes to me. WHAT TO DO?

My husband travels alot so I am the care taker of our yorkies.When he does come home I'm off limits to my husband,as far as the yorkies are concern. What we did is when he's home he feeds and cares for them. I would suggest both of you feed and care for her so that she knows both of you are the caretakers, or one of you one day, then the other the next day. The food dish is a problem only leave it down when its time to eat, leave it down for 15 minutes then remove
it until its time to eat again. I hope this helps.

Your husband should feed your pet by hand whenever possible and have the pet work (i.e sit, down, stay etc..)for every kibble. Feed an entire meal in this manner for severel weeks. Only one meal per day. Over time the pet will realize that your husband is the one that provides the food and leadership, thus the pet will not "bite the hand that feeds it".

Let you dog know who's the boss.  You can teach old dogs new tricks if you take the time to do so. First off, it in unacceptable that you dog is nipping or attempting to bite you when you touch her food/bowl.  Thus, you must feed her by hand , by placing the food directly from your hand to the plate one piece at a time. Until she is use to you handling her food.(also you should occasionally take away her plate to test her reaction)  Once again, it is unacceptable for any aggression when you are touching her food bowl.  Lastly, you and your mate should share the care that you render to your pet so that she will appreciate you both and respect you both.  When and if she becomes aggressive in the bed you should pick her up and take her out and close the door. Be consistant and she will eventually stop.  Yorkies are great dogs to own, I know because I have one, however, if you are not careful they will own you.

I think you should probably dump your boyfriend because he took away your dog's best friend. There is no replacing you! He needs to understand this. So just tell him that you and your yorkie want him gone.

oh wow, make sure you and your boyfriend take turns in teaching the dog. I spoil my pom to death, i understand how easy it is to give in to what they want and when they want it. My boyfriend hates it!! my dog has a fur, a platinum feeding bowel, clothes for everyday and seasons. I've gone into debt behind this dog so learn from me if you can get a handle on the spoiling before it's gets out of control!!
best of luck to you
oh and it doesn't hurt to spank the dog lightly on the bottom!
