My dog is almost a year old and still dose not respond to disciplines any type.
Here is what he is doing...things we have tried
getting out of the fence (dose not run off just gets out)... kennel when he gets back in, watching him while he is out
steeling toys from are older dog (who gets mad)... smack on the nose to puppy, smack on nose to adult, tack toy give another toy that is not being played with, leave it tack it techniques
wont calm down... push to side (make lay down) stay down tell calms down, smacking on nose
chewing on things ...better yuck and trading out for a toy
eating socks hole... idk what to do
jumping... push down say no jump, turning away from him, soft knee to chest, smack on nose
there are others but theses are major concerns what can i do i dont believe in shock collars even at a very low vault age but it is getting to that point water battle dose not work, bopping him on the nose dose not work, yelling dose not work and positive motivation when he dose good dose not work what can i do!!!!!
Sounds like puppy behavior to me :( I definitely don't think hitting him is the way to go at all....you dont hit your kids do you? How much attentions does he get from you aday. Even taking 15-20 minutes brushing and teaching him new tricks will stimulating enough to calm him down. Try different kinds of chewy's like Cow hooves you can get them from pet-co they are the best! Does he get enough exercise? I do know that my pup is way better behaved if i take him to a dog park and run around for a bit. Good luck!!!
