Question by pookiepoo: What should I do about training my adult dog?
I have an adult dog (4 years old) and a puppy (4 months old.
My adult dog has fear aggression and I am trying to retrain as I do my puppy. The problem is that my two daughters and husband do not always follow the correct reinforcement training techniques as they should to be consistent with what I am doing.
How should I proceed with the training without alienating the family from the dogs and without undoing my training progress?

You can try a send away training program. Some training facilities keep your dog for 2 wks or so and train them. Then the trainers hold sessions with you, to teach you the techniques. This would work for your family, but can be pricey.
It’s that or sit your family down and explain to them why this is important. Everyone has to be on board or it won’t work!
