Man Servant

We've been working on some of Zoey's behavioral issues like jumping on me and pawing at my face to get attention. She's very smart, and when I assume a leadership role, she falls into line. She'll come to me and obey a few basic commands.

But she still considers me her man servant, and that's a tough nut to crack without it being an "I'm the human and you are a dog" relationship that we should have. So, like with everything else lately, I've been trying to plot a middle path.

The important thing is that she will follow commands in an emergency, and we're already at that point. Now the tough part is getting her to be a little less bossy. I'm still her man servant, and she will often scold me for giving her a command.
