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.

Stop Puppy Biting Issue Is Conquered. Border Collie Mix – Wow

The “stop puppy biting” issue may have been conquered.  More on this a little later.

I’m telling you, a Border Collie mix puppy is so full of energy that it zaps YOU of energy!  I have slept so soundly ever since we got Kash, our handsome little stinker.  That is because by the end of the evening, I am worn out from constantly removing the many thousands of things from his mouth that he finds.  Maybe millions!

He does love to run.

He he comes, blasting through the woods!

Kash the Dog

Okay, this is what I wanted to tell you about!  I think Kash is finally learning to “stop puppy biting“!  This is something we have been working on since the first week.  Our dog training guide has been the hero in this battle.

Kash is so darn head-strong that this has kinda become a battle of wills.  We have tried to stay consistent with what Dog Training Secrets teaches, and it finally is paying off.  Hats off to the guy that wrote this training guide!

The other issue we are working on before we go on to teaching other commands is the annoying “how to stop puppy barking” crap.  This has to stop.  I have never heard such a sharp, pierce-you-to-the-middle-of-the-brain, loud, in your ear bark!!!  Like I said, Kash is a little defiant guy.

Other than those two “take a little longer” training issues, Kash is a ultra fast learner.  When Kash is in the office when I am working, he will bring his water dish to me when it is empty.  He gently bumps my leg with it and makes a little “hmmph” noise.  It is so darn cute when he does that.

 

Border Collie-Aussie mix, stop the puppy biting.
He doesn’t look like the stinker I tell you he is.

It was a great day actually.  Little Kash is growing up.  He was well behaved today and has shown much better confidence in the woods, and had a lot of patience while I was working. So I am looking forward to another training session with my little Border Collie-Aussie puppy again tomorrow.  I’ll keep you posted.

Love your dog.

Border Collie Mix – Is It a Blessing or a Curse?

Kash, a Border Collie mix puppy certainly displays a lot of “smarts” but also has some hard to handle border collie traits.

I was certain that there was no problem, me, being able to handle the bundle of energy that a Border Collie Aussie mix can bring. Boy, do both my wife and I have our hands full!

If it wasn’t for the dog training program Dog Training Secrets, I am not sure we would have lasted this long.  We are finally getting the biting under control.  Like the puppy training program said, it takes persistence, patience, and commitment.

He doesn't always like to be told what to do!

Our ongoing training starts before we let him out of the crate in the morning.  We tell him to “sit” before he gets let out, and then to “lay down” before he let out the door to go outside.  Tomorrow we are going to teach him to ring a bell that I will locate near the door.

We will teach Kash to ring the bell when he needs to go out, not necessarily when he wants to go out.  The bell will be located just high enough and off to the side of the door, so that he doesn’t just ring it by accident.  It will have to be a conscious effort.

If any of you has had success with “ringing the bell to go out” I would really love it if you would leave a comment in the comment box.  We are wondering how long it took to get your dog trained.

Kash sure does seem to learn fast, at least the basics.  How to stop puppy biting and how to stop puppy barking has been the challenge for sure.  He sure seems like he is strong-willed, or head-strong. I am not sure what you call it.  We call it defiance!  He is a little stinker, for sure.
