Make sure to make him do a trick before he gets any reward. Like filling his bowl with food, then making him sit before you give it to him. It teaches pack heirarchy (you on top, him on bottom).

We enforce this all day long every day. If mr. dog and I go through the same doorway, I have to go before him. BF and I also eat first and then when we're done, then I put out food for the dog. He has to see us eating before him. Before he goes on a walk, we make him lie down before we put the leash on. That kinda stuff.

In other words, YOU are the boss!
