Bax update!

he's not perfect but its 100% livable now. He still barks and growls when he hears things sometimes. a full bark and a run to the baby gate at the top of the stairs earns him a time out still but that happens maybe once or twice a week and is manageable. other times he'll hear a thump, growl, start to go to the stairs, and then turn around and come back to me which earns him a potato chunk.

i would def say that time outs weren't a miracle cure. hes not flawless, but its manageable and hes so much calmer and more relaxed now. he spends his days snoozing on the couch and chewing up my mail :roll:

That's brilliant, Shalista :D You could ask your neighbour to pop her junk mail through your letterbox each day to keep him occupied :idea:
