Stop Puppy Biting Please! Puppy Training Works, Sometimes.

The continuing saga of the “stop puppy biting” issue that I thought was just about solved.  We have been working so hard trying to correct Kash’s puppy biting.  He may think he is just “mouthing”, but with those needle sharp teeth, they tear flesh, draw blood, and then he gets defiant when you tell him “NO”.  NOT ACCEPTABLE.

The dog training guide we have been using has worked remarkably well for everything else. Well, except for the “stop puppy barking” problem we also have.  We think we have been unfortunately blessed with a difficult head strong puppy.  We will overcome these two issues with consistency and commitment.  Kash will be trained.

Truly beautiful day in the woods. Here comes a little Kash!

Kash the Dog

It was an awesome morning with a fresh two inch dropping of bright white snow that stuck to the trees.  Kash and I headed out into the woods.  The woodpeckers were pecking, geese were flying overhead, and birds were flitting around like it is spring.

We’ll keep on plugging with the biting and barking issue until we overcome the problem.  So stay tuned to see the results.  If you have any advice you can give us, we are open to suggestions. Just use the “comments” link.

Puppy Training Works for This Border Collie-Aussie Mix

Is the puppy training working?  Kash, the Border Collie-Aussie mix puppy has learned many basic commands and he has started to turn the corner on “stopping puppy biting“.

He was a four legged ball of fast moving energy that was into everything, biting whatever was in front of him, and then doing that puppy barking crap when you tried to tell him “NO”.  A pure stinker with talent for finding whatever might be loose, fits in his mouth, or is shreddable.

Kash the Dog

I told you early on that we did a lot of research before we even took custody of Kash on just how to train a Border Collie mix puppy.  We read a lot of information and a lot of it was the same.  The I found Dog Training Secrets and was convinced that this was what kind of dog training style we were looking for.

We were so pleased and agreed with most of the training.  I mean it was detailed and explained just what to do, but a couple things we had issues with.  Those two issues were “how to stop puppy from biting” and “how to stop puppy from barking“.

Now I don’t know if we were conveying the training wrong, or that we have a head-strong dog that may prove to be a difficult to train puppy.  He learned all the basic commands in a snap!  He is smart, but boy does he give us problems over those two issues.

You calling me?

 

Kash the Dog

I hope this isn’t sounding too negative about Kash.  He does respond so well to the dog training guide commands, and he is incredibly smart.  Handsome and so entertaining that until those snake-like fangs snag your hand or sweatshirt, he is a blast!

We will forge ahead with puppy training.  He is so worth it!

In a quiet moment, talk to your dog at his level, he will appreciate the conversation.
