So my room mates' brother is spending the month with us. He's never met the girls so we've been cautious about everything (making sure doors are closed etc ). He's very open on working with the problem dogs. The problem lies with the others that tend to be around when my room mate, the brother and myself bring up the subject. They tend to snap "you should just force them to deal with it". I've tried to explain that it won't help but I just get ignored because I tend to be the youngest in the group therefore god forbid I know something and they don't. I just need someway I can beat it into their heads that this requires patience and none of their input because I know what I am doing. It has just become the big purple elephant in the room and it has made the room mate's brother uncomfortable around the others because he does want to help.
