# Dog behavior
My dog knows how to play me
I have three children and except for some mistakes along the way, I have done a good job with discipline. I know how important it is to create boundaries and enforce consequences. Why then, is it so difficult for me to enforce the rules with my dog?
Your dog's relationship with the neighbors
I love our border collie puppy Bandit, but he is a whirling dervish. He doesn’t do anything calmly or slowly. He tears out the door, super excited about playing and meeting new people. He is gentle and loving and would not willingly hurt a soul, but his behavior can be annoying and scary if you don’t know him which means that we have had to worry about his behavior with our neighbors.
