He wont be a puppy, people are scared off.

His just trying to push his boundries!

Just tell him a-ha and mean it, never let him do it, even when playing with him, you will end up with a mouthy young dog.

Training classes are good, if you can afford them. I never did with Buddy.

I didnt work tho, and spent all day with him, so worked with him myself, just by getting tips on the net.

your council might provide some classes or your local vets may have 'puppy parties'.

do some positive training with him yourself practising sit and lay down plus other things.

when you say you place him in his box? is it a crate? does he sleep there? x

Training classes are not expensive, I paid £30 for 8 weeks as I was a member of the club or it is £40.00 if you are not a member.
As we have passed all grades I do not need to do any further courses but I like to keep going for the socialisation and to learn new things and I only pay £3 per week

only think i would say is hun dont remove him and put him in his sleeping place for punishment.

his sleeping place is his safe haven and he should think that as a positive place to be not somewhere he goes when he gets told off.so he keeps enjoying and feeling safe where he sleeps.

keep on the removing but maybe put him out of the room for 4-5 seconds instead. dogs learn through repetition and association so be consistent and calm you will get there.

just my opinion hun xx

and if he starts running off and having you chase him etc look at a clix house training line, i reccomend them my customers.

they are a very light house line, that should never ever ever be left on pup unsupervised.
everytime they do the unwanted behaviour you lead them by the house line out of the room for 5 seconds no longer as they wont remember why they got sent out.

the training lead allows you to get hold of pup safely and without them giving them attention by touching them or speaking to them.

they come with a booklet too again consistency is really the key and everybody in the house must follow the rules. sorry for going on lol

I find sometimes it's best to do it yourself and take you pup to parks with other dogs and so on...but i've done sasha myself the only trouble i'm getting at the moment is to making to sit down while we wait for traffic to pass...but i'm sure it'll come in time. i don't really want to keep giving her treats if i can tell it cos she know sit/paw/lay down/stay...so i want to try and make her do it without treats on the other end...anyone have any advice for that...and sorry to gatecrash lol xxx

Hi

There will be a few, usually at the Church Hall, I tok my girl to my local one and also she goes to a new one about 5 miles away, they are good to do. If you go to the Kennel Club they do good Citezen Dog Scheme (I am doing it) and they list trainers, I will ask Christiine for some near rotherham if you like I will see her at Flyball this weekend.

I know its tempting but dont use your crate as punishement its his bed and you will need it when he gets older and starts to eat your house from the inside out - lol

Rhi - I agree, your puppy will follow you round ike I dont know what and thats the best time to start the basics he/she is looking to you for direction. I got a coupleo f books off the internet and they were invaluable, only a couple of quid and also went onto you tube for tips too.

I used puppy classes for socialising, I do also think Vets do them too, for those that take them to be vaccinated, I believe its free

thanks babypink...i do think doing it yourself is better as you got the one on one thing going on and your puppy trust you so easily...i started teaching Sasha about 3-4 days after getting her...i let her settle in first and so on...i never really think it's too early to start the training just try to make it as fun for them as poss...and only for shorts brust of like 5 or so minutes and repeat a few days aday...well thats how i did it with Sasha...i guess her sitting on the pavement will come in time...xx

You can take your pup to dog training class's as soon as poss if you want. I took my dog when he was about 13 weeks old. Ive done all 3 grades now with him and he's very well behaved for his age. Still nutty some times. He's 17 months old. I didn't just do it for him, but for myself to. I think you learn better when going to class's then doing it your self. Like when he jumps up I say OFF not down what most people would say. I dog thinks your saying down to them for a command when your not. Your telling them to get off. This is how you learn and no a lot more when going to training class's. It will help your pup if you do go to class's, he sounds like my dog when he was a pup, acting just the same way.

You need to train the behavior initially by using treats / rewards so that it is natural for her to sit and wait. When I am out walking with Reuben as soon as I stop walking he sits, I dont have to say anything now and I still give him a treat for doing it or make a real fuss of him
