Customer Question

Hi.. My dog's behavior changed after my vacation. I left him with my sister who stays in my house now. I came back from my vacation and my dog feels to be detached from me. He wouldn't come when I call him, he doesn't obey commands, doesn't sleep with me. But he does the same with my sister. Feels like he thinks that my sister is his master now. What can I do to gain his sister back?
