    Default Breakthrough in biting??

    Good morning! Thanks for all the posts on my previous thread about puppy biting. @bulldogs4me, thanks for the article! It was very helpful! As you know we have tried everything to discourage, or snap Bogey out of his "I am going to bite your feet no matter what" mode. Quite by accident, yesterday we were outside and Bogey got in his biting mode. Ed (my hubby) was sitting in his chair and Bogey would NOT leave his feet alone-until Ed tried a VERY DEEP LOUD BARK! I never saw Bogey react so quick. He immediately released, ears went back and he sat very low, almost cowering at Ed's feet. He became very complacent! So, we tried it again when we needed it , and he had the same reaction! The next time he went to Ed's feet, it was to gently lick his leg, which we praised him to no end! So, fingers crossed, we are hoping we found the much needed correction! I'll keep you posted! Oh and the best thing is that Bogey has NO IDEA where the bark is coming from! Ed is very tall, and of course our little guy is very close to the ground, so I think this is the greatest! We'll see!!!

    I hope you have a solution but Bogey is still just a baby so dont expect too much of the little cutie. Have you tried the coins in a can trick? That may work as well. Ive heard of many having great success with it.

    I bark or growl sometimes when they are acting up, it is a language they understand lol. When they are little pups I yelp like they are hurting me, that works really well.

    puppies no matter how young know when the "alpha" speaks and will react to it ... make sure you can do that bark too so Bogey respects both of you as his pack leader ... it all takes time, they are just like little babies and they have to learn what is ok to do and what isn't ok and just like human babies they will push the limits to see just how far is too far, but if you have set clear rules, boundaries and limitations and you are always consistent with Bogey he will be set up for great success!! but I always want to say I really like all the positive work you are doing with your little guy ... good job really good job!!
