I've written to this group about my daughter's pit bull and received some great advise as to how to train him. It's been almost 40 years since I last owned a dog so am puzzled by one aspect of "Cassius." He will come up to where I am sitting and watching television and just sit there and stare at me. Sometimes for hours. Is this common? I can't remember a dog ever doing this to me. Cassius is now 2 years old.
