Simon has been much better lately. His nipping is almost stopped He is still a nightmare on the leash, when he sees something interesting but overall he is much better
When he bites, i push him off, go in another room, and shutr the door in his face for 30 seconds i feed him out of my hand and make him sit before he does anything
I will probably work with my trainer for another 5-6 weeks, It is just much easier with individual attention
As the trainer said "Simon doesn't have to know I think he is adorable"

Simon is indeed a lucky guy to have you for his Mommy! It is worth it to get him a trainer. After all, you hope to have many great years with him.

Very true and most important you get feedback if you are doing it right. Take something you would think is simple as a correction with a choke chain, but unless someone has been shown how to do it most likely it is either ineffective, dangerious and sometimes both. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words and 10 minutes with an good intructor/teacher/trainer is worth a more than any book.
