How do I stop my puppy from chewing or biting on people?
Help I have a Springer Spaniel, when its time for us to leave for the day or bed time and we put him in his crate turns to kujo. I've tried not putting him is the crate and just closing the door to the basement and no change. He is a great dog the rest of the time and great with the kids. We don't want to get rid of him but I fear he will hurt one of us
I think that John's methods are great, however I disagree with his method on getting your dog to walk by your side. I have raised two very large potentially dominant breeds both males ( Rottweiler, Dogue De Bordeux or French Mastiff) Both of them while lead training of course are very strong, pack dominant, highly intelligent dogs. When on lead we simply would start walking and as soon as they pulled ahead we would do an aboutface and have them sit next to us for a second if they dont know the sit command yet, you gently apply your hand to their backside and they sit and you give them a treat and lots of praise, then start the process again, if they pull ahead another aboutface and so on. This literally takes 1-2 days of consistancy and they will usually always stay by the side of whomever is walking them. i.e both of my dogs would change their gate to walk right next to my 2 year old if he had the leash. After the walk is when we would let them run all around. Just doesn't make much sense to tire them out Before a walk.
My 2 yr old Choc Lab digs holes all over my yard what can I do to stop her
Here's my question about dog behavior. What have I done to make my 85lb Rottweiler think that she should be able to fit on my lap?
i learned the best way to train an animal is to act as an animal. you should smell your dog (any part doesn't have to be butt that's gross). if it is puppy and it bite you you should bite it back (not hard gently but enough for a "no". if it pisses inside you should take it out side and make it watch you piss outside. this all may sound mean but your teaching the animal in its more native way and works a lot quicker and easier. i have seen wild dogs and cats that are still not hostile and are very loving.peaple kill them for fun and the animal is punished rather than the person is complete garbage. anmials understand more animal-like communication such as smelling a cats/dogs neck. that makes them more comfortable to you. all unadapted dogs that are killed should instead be re-taught how to be wild and be put back into the wild, animals prefere to die in the wild, trying. rather than being killed by a human with no chance. most animal caches take the kind-loving ones rather than going after the vicus ones that need to be put in wild, but most catchers are lazy and take genital dogs and charge a fee to re-obtain them.
You all seem very intelligent lol
BREEDERS are the ones who Make MONEY breeding animals while 10,000 animals die in the shelter each day ! There are thousands of purebred huskies and labs in the shelters as well as other purebreds , if you have to have a purebred…DON'T SHOP ..ADOPT !
All it takes, and we breed dogs (Labs and Huskies) is a flick of your finger on the nose, and a stern NO! as a puppy. The so-called, self appointed 'experts' dont want us to know just how easy it really is to train a dog. Repetition, reward, and time... Those are the only three things you need to train your dog. But that info makes them NO MONEY.
