And I promise not to break that string!

Right. But you forgot the part about never ever getting another dog again.

I agree, no more dogs. I've only had 2. It's just cats for me from now on. I've learned that dogs are hard work. A LOT of work. Lesson learned. Move on!
Janet gave me a link to a better site where they can do pay by hour or session. INstead of the HUGE amount up front. That is more what I was looking for. If I find that hard, my mom and her spouse want her. There are no kids there.
I cant help it I have to reply to this one. Can anyone be this clueless for real?
How do you make a 2 yr old clean up after themself? Does the BABY (Sorry I mean 2 yr old human) change her own diaper or training pants as well while the mother sits and plays with the doggie? Her last dogs lifts his leg on her to mark her and she did what about it?
Here is a clue lady..rehome the dog and take parenting classes!

There are no kids there.

And there are never any kids there? Your mom only comes to YOUR house?

If a dog is not safe around children (and children aren't safe around dogs) then keeping them apart 95% of the time and then throwing them together is not solving the problem. If anything, it only makes it worse - just concentrates the time period for an incident.
And if the dog is so attached to you that you think he is jealous of your daughter, then how much worse will that be when the dog is attached to Grandma and then the granddaughter comes over to visit Grandma?

Unless your mother is much better at training dogs than you are (which I doubt or that would have been your first resource for help) then giving the dog to your mother is a really bad solution.

My mom lives 9 hours away from me. So no, there are no kids.

I don't MAKE my daughter clean after herself, I try to get her to. Like just clean up spilt milk with towel. Idon't forcer her to. If I don't start somewhere, she will NEVER learn anything. And no, she doesn't change her own diapers. She's potty trained. I AM good mother. YOu can not say that about me because YOU DON'T KNOW ME. My child is happy, healthy, smart and well taken care of, very loved. If I were a bad mother, she would be neglected and unloved.

You know what, I don't even know why I'm fighting wtih you on this. This is stupid. I may not be very smart, but I am not stupid.
I've got her on her leash attached to my belt. nilf has begun.

Good.
Were you able to order those books I mentioned? Especially the cautious canine. I'd try that first.

I have a 2 yr old human. I got a 3 yr old abused aussie mix las Aug. The human ... there. But who knows what they will do to her there. AND they don't even know if it will work.

If you've been around this group for awhile, then you know not to expect support but rather judgement. Seems to be what people here do best. If you don't believe your dog is a human you probably won't fit in here very well.

I was googling about this topic and only found dog jealous of new baby, not other way around. I've never posted here before, I don't know anything aboutthis group. I got directed here when google brought me to the above question of the new baby. I have not read any other threads.
Now I'm confused. I get picked apart for treating my dog as a human, but at same time you're "If you don't believe your dog is a human you probably won't fit

That's because he is wrong, and my guess is that he is bitter because he didn't get the affirmation he was looking for. No regular on this group has EVER advocated treating dogs as humans. However everyone does and will continue to hold the welfare of dogs as a very high priority. That's why they are here: for the dogs.
