Nice looking pup!
Buy a realistic brown bear toy for him to practice viciousness upon.

Wouldn't that be bad for a bird dog? I don't want him to tear my birds up

Grew up with border collies! Awesome dogs. Absolutely love them. If you've never had them before, be prepared to keep them active and occupied. Ridiculously smart, but easily bored.

Alright guys I'm coming to u in desperation here. It seems as though I'm only doing the crappy parts of having a dog with none of the rewards. He doesn't listen to me and he seems to have no attraction to me at all. He's not bonding with me at all. He is more bonded with my mom than me but I still have to sleep with him at nigh and still have to do all the work with no return.

Not that i'm perfect with my Boy,.but let me tell you what I know from having a bukky for the last year: Repetition is the key. Stick to the training and the dog will follow. Show him kind but firm love. He's not looking at you as the Leader right now, he is treating you as an equal and that's gotta stop! Let me look for some docs I have about training and I'll PM you where to get it from me..

Hope Dr has some info for you.
Have you signed up for puppy class yet with a good trainer? I does appear he's the alpha and you don't rank right now. That needs to be addressed, but the right way and with positive rewards. Also, is mom home all day and you're at school/work? All is not lost. He's a puppy. If you're discouraged or frustrated with him, he'll sense that.

I'll went through some links here that look like solid info to get you started. But really, puppy class and talking to a trainer who can see the issue is best.

Alright the way the pup will learn that you are the boss, make sure you and you only have control of what he eats and when. And start him on a leash, go for a walk everyday alone just you, bring his favorite toy and some treats. Stop at a part or a nice area that the two of you can have some time to play. Fetch is the best because you can reward him for bringing the toy back. And whatever happens try not to tell or get discouraged because that will just make it harder. Positive punishment punishment and reward goes a long way. Good luck
