Hello ,guys.Happy to meet you here .Wish we could be friend and have a good time here .
My little Sirius is 55days old .He is very naughty and almost pay his all attention to bite everythings surrounding him .I told him not to do this but it sames no working .Some time a hit him .But he just be better in 10mins and then he will bite again .What shall i do ?
He is a poodle and you can see him on the pic .I just cut down his hair the day before yesterday and wearing him in a sweater .Hmmmm...
Hello & welcome......How long have you had your new guy?
Your puppy is not naughty, he's just being a puppy! They explore with their mouths...This is normal behavior! Puppies learn their socialization from their mothers between 6-10 wks. old....A responsible breeder will not let them go before 10 wks. because of this importance.
DO NOT ever hit your puppy for any reason! He is learning the world around him....Continuing to hit him will lead to many problems with his behavior, including aggression....You must re-direct his attention to chew on something appropriate like a Kong, Rope toy, stuffed toy, nylon bones, etc...
Puppies take alot of patience and up to a year in training.......Poodles are smart and can learn alot....However, you need to be skilled in how to approach this...
Go to the Library & get books on Rearing a puppy, look for online articles on training....Enroll you guy in a puppy behavioral classes at Petsmart or Petco.....You can't believe what the humans learn from these classes....They are well worth the money.....
Once you learn what he's doing from his perspective, you will be on to a very wonderful relationship for years to come.....Good luck and keep us updated on his progress.......Karla
Hey! He sounds like a cute little one! Yes it's true what Karla said, he's ust being a natural puppy. But he does need to learn his "boundaries". This is an important part of his development, and is usually learned with his mother and litter-mates. Mouthing and biting a person or other dog is a thing they all do at that age, but when they are with their litter mates, they learn that doing it too much, or too hard and they get a "yelp" or a nip from the other ones, or from mother.
But it is true that a dog should never be hit. Not even lightly. It doesn't help them learn, and can cause fear and aggression certainly. Being hit by a human really means something to a dog, but not in a constructive way at all, and nothing like the chastisement which they would receive from their own kind.
I have see dogs chastise each other, and the lesson was learnt, in seconds...and the chastisement sounded pretty harsh! But the dog accepted it in good part with no damage done. However, I have seen a dog hit by a human, and terribly confused and upset as a result.
When he bites too hard it would be all right to give a sharp "ai!" like another dog might do. Or even the word "No!". Then he will hear this and recognize the sound meant he had gone too far
Okay...thank you for all of you guys...
I feel so sorry to my puppy after listen to you guys .I will not hit him any more .I just need to know how to teach him ,training him .I love him ,deeply .So i totally hope he could be a good boy and live with me during his life .Please ,tell me how to do this .Thank you so much!
I know, I can tell you love him.
Don't give yourself a hard time about hitting him once or twice before. He'll be fine! There is always so much to learn with a dog, and difficult to know what to do to train a little pup, especially if it's a first time for you.
If it's any consolation, many years ago, back in the '80's, well before I learned about dogs, and the way to handle them, I had a Jack Russell who was quite difficult to train. I did ALL the wrong things, I gave him a little slap on the haunches sometimes if I saw him eyeing sheep to chase them....
I loved that dog and he loved me. But I did some things wrong until I learned differently.
Every day you learn something new with a dog. You could buy a book about puppy training to guide you if you like. Or sometimes your vet will be able to recommend puppy training classes in your area (sometimes they are done at the vet's office, they have a special"puppy party" day)
Don't worry. Your guy will have such a strong bond with you. He will be the best friend you ever had! Good luck.
In addition to what Misfits4me (Karla) has said, which is good advice ... also make sure your puppy has been vaccinated BEFORE you take him out for walks. However, once protected against such appalling diseases like parvovirus, try to enroll him in a local training class. They usually have ones specially for puppies. Quite apart from the excellent training methods they will help you with, it will also socialise your dog with other dogs. This is so important and helps create a nicely balanced dog later in life and one that doesn't tend to be over-protective, aggressive or one that adopts fear-aggression as a way of getting out of mixing with other dogs.
You are so lucky to have your little guy ... and with the right amount of patience, training, the right food, lots of attention and (of course) love, you will both have so many happy times to come.
That's so true about socializing your dog. They do need to learn the etiquette of how to mix with their own kind. It is so important, as dogs are basically social animals, very much like we are, and it deprives them terribly not to get that right from an early age, and can definitely cause behavioural disturbances in later life.
Spanking ..(hitting) your dog is not the best way to teach....As I grew up, our family had many dogs...I watched and unfortunately learned that you spank your dog when he does something wrong, and you rub their nose into whatever mess they make on the floor...Oh,my...I think of how I continued this horrible training with my own dogs. I never thought that there was anything wrong with it, I just know that is how I was taught.
I have since learned, that Praise is the way to teach...! Do not hit your dog if he has done something wrong..instead, redirect them to do the right thing, and praise them when they do what you want. Praising or rewarding you dog when he does something good, is the way to go !!!
You will get quicker results, and a happier puppy.
If you are trying to housebreak or pee pad train your puppy, it will help you to know that there are 3 times, when you should bring your pup outside, or to the pee pad...Puppies always pee..after they wake up...after they play..and after they eat. And, many times, puppies will pee twice each time. (After they pee the first time, be prepared, they may pee again in 5 or 10 minutes ) When the puppy pees where you want him to....give him lots of hugs and praise, or a reward. He will learn to potty where you want him to in no time....!
Best wishes to you and Sirius...!
Thank you so much !I was just began to treining him to pee on the paper .Some time it works but some times no working .But i will never give him up .He is very clever and naughty .Some times when i took away his pee paper ,he tear it then run away...hmmmm...such a naughty boy .
There is a new problem :his nose ,became a litter red and shedding hair .What can i do for this ?
How is training coming along with Sirius...? Are you making any progress..?
So sorry to hear about your friends puppies. It is so sad to hear that they may have parvo.
How is Sirius nose doing...? Is it still red and losing hair...? He is a puppy and if he likes to chew on things, that most likely is the reason for his nose being red.
Thank you for trying to help your friend and her puppies.
I hope you have a peaceful Christmas...
Thank you ,Connie .Sirius is better now .No losing hair anymore but just still a little red .He will be fine .Many thanks ,dear .My friend's puppy ,not survive .3 of them were dead .But the last one succeed .He was survive and happy and health to enjoy his new life .
About the training , just a little succeed .He was very good when we at home .But when i go out for work ,everything just turn back...May be i have to pay more attention to him ,right ?
