Your brother can't wuss out on this -- c'mon, would he want his partner sabotaging everything he was doing behind his back? NO.

They ALL need to do NILIF. It's kinder to the dog in the long run. It's not 'bad' -- it's just a different way of dealing with them. Dogs ARE dogs ... they *don't* think like humans. And it's expecting too much of them to make decisions they can't make wisely. The dog is gonna screw up and bite someone (probably the MIL) and then the dog will lose his home. So give the dog a break and tell brother he needs to know more than the dog does.

Different dogs are different -- remember how much trouble Drew had with Farley at first? Farley was Mr. Don't TELL ME what to do!! -- and Drew had his hands full because Farley was such a dominant little twerp. NOW he's a good dog but man, Drew had to be really careful with him.

You may need to charge them for re-training their dog.

Don't let that dog give you flack. He growls at you next time you say "Excuse me? Exactly what part of YOU do you want me to take the first chunk out of??? Because you will NOT bite **ME** -- first off I would taste really bad, and YOU are gonna obey me because I'm bigger, and frankly meaner than you have any idea that I am!!"

words don't matter -- that's my point. It's your attitude. And give him heck! Be absolutely AMAZED that he tried THAT with you? I DO NOT THINK SO!! (I've said those very words to dogs before). I've also absooutley **GROWLED** the words

"How Darrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre you growllllll at ME!!" (make that sound like one long ferocious but deadly quiet growl). Glare at him. Remember that teacher in school that NOBUDDY gave guff to? Remember how no one crossed her? STAND like her.

Don't give him a centimeter. Not a hair. And keep after him. When he does something 'good' don't go all girly on him. "THAT was good!" or "Well done". matter of fact but positive. A head "nod". Make him WORK for praise. And don't give in even once.

As you have success with him, then your family will see it works and that's what they have to do. The one who scares me is the woman who hits him -- she's the one he'll turn on.
