My Westie (West Highland Terrier) has some issues that need ironing out, namely going insane whenever you try to get her to do something she doesn't want to do - A trait everything female seems to have.
- She will not be moved after just waking up/when very comfy. She firms up and gives you the evil eye, warning you she'll seriously go for you if you try anything. The solution to this is simple - Put something over her head and grab her...but she then goes into 'attack mode', showing her teeth and growling, only stopping when beaten (repeatedly) over the head with a cushion.
- When you tell her to come in from the garden (ie: shout at her), she sometimes stands there in her 'attacking stance', not moving until you walk up to her. When you do walk up to her, she will go for blood, attacking your feet if you put them anywhere near here. There are three solutions to this I've found after much research - A) Scream as loud as humanly possible, B) Blow bubbles near her (seriously) or C) Pick up and wave a rubber chicken around.
Any advice? I don't want to beat it out of her... I'll try to think of this as training for when I get married.
