Default Tico and my daughter

Remember when I got Tico I was nervous with him around my kids as he would snarl and snap at them? Well, we've been working on it and this is the result.

OH, how sweet is that. They look like they're comforting each other. What a good old man. You've done a great job with him, it's amazing that he's fitting in so fast.

That is so sweet. They all look so peaceful.

What did you do to calm the dogs down? My daughter is pregnant and due in July ... I am very much afraid that my little Taco dog is going to be jealous of the new baby because he thinks HE is my baby. He has snapped at my granddaughters who are 8, and they are sort of afraid of him.

With Tico, I started with no growl command and a tap lightly on the ear. The tap is mostly to let him know I am talking to him as he is functionally blind. Then I started sitting next to Becky with Tico on my lap. He started sitting on her lap with his butt touching me. Then I took it from there, with me slowly moving away. Both of us petting him, then me stopping and her continuing. He will still growl when startled and he is in his dog bed, but that is because of his poor sight and because he is old and doesn't like commotion. He doesn't like to be startled by the dogs or my kids, but he has never growled at me. It's taken three weeks, but he is so much better with the kids. At no time did we force him to sit in her lap or for him to accept her petting him before he was ready. Just let him move at his own pace. I have no idea what his first 10 to 12 years were like before I got him. So everything is geared toward him being comfortable.
