Unhappy Naughty behaviours....

Bang gu is 9 1/2 weeks old now and last Friday she had a first vaccination. She didn't cry. She was brave! No.. I think she didn't even know what it was.
She is getting really naughty and she has a bad attitude. I think she knows her name. Wen we call her, she look at us and ignore us. Sometimes she answers us. Over the weekend, I tried to train her to have a wee and poo in a garden, but it was raining all day long on Sunday... It ruined what she learned on Saturday. One thing really annoys me that she did her business on every rugs instead of newspapers we put down for her business.
Also, she bites everything. She bites shoes, slippers, figners, etc. We said to her in firm voice "No", but she just ignores us. Probably she thinks we are playing with her.
Sometimes, my husband is so angry with her.. poo and pee everywhere. He give her a smack or shouting at her. I felt sorry for her, but she has to learn fast!!!
We also try to train her on lead. She doesn't like it at all. We thought we should train her walking(on lead) as early as we can. She makes all noise and try to dragging out of it. So, we gave up!

i think you should take her back to the breeder to be rehomed, i dont think you are suited to owning a dog.

Thanks for your comment Katlovesdogs, but you are too harsh! I have dogs all my life, from very young age.

so why are you smacking a9 1/2 week old puppy for peeing in the wrong place? giving up because she quite understandably dosnt like the lead and saying ur tiny puppy has a bad attitude??? dont u realise that its going to take several weeks to house train her??? i dont think u have bonded with her.

We have a great FAQ section here with answers to all your questions! Housebreaking, nipping, etc. I think that crate training would be a good option for you as far as housebreaking goes.

I just think you need to give the pup more time to learn. If you are consistent and keep at it she will soon start to learn. What you must understand is a pup does not understand the word no, you have to train it to know what human words mean.
With regards to her not liking her lead, she won't do at first as it is something that she is not used to she will get there eventually.
Please get your husband to stop smacking her though as she will be very delicate and he could easily harm her and it also not a good way to train a dog.

Actually I don't smack her. My husband did gentle smack twice. I know it is not right to smack her. He never owns a dog before, due to his allergy. As I am working full-time, my husband is the one who is training her, as he is working from home. If we didn't want our pup, I wouldn't have looked for answers on this website. The reason I said she has got an attitude is that she ignores us. She answers if she likes.
I had a toy poodle for 12 years and she was so clever. She came to our home when she was only 6 weeks old. She learned quickly... I know every dogs are different.
I just wanted to share how other puppies are doing. I thought this is the web site that we share info and encourage each other. Not telling me I am not suited for a dog owner. If I think I will not be a good dog owner, I would happily give her back or rehome her.

As you say all dogs are different and it takes some dogs longer then others to learn the things we want them to like being housebroken. I'm sure with hardwork that you will have a well behaved dog in the future.
I got lucky with Shankly as he learnt things very quickly and didn't chew and always answered whereas my brother owns Shankly's brother and it took him a lot longer to be toilet trained and also not to chew.

I should probably smack my husband tonight for smacking Bang-gu. My husband has always a cat.. He thinks a cat is independent. He still loves her a lot. She is georgeous little thing!! While we are eating, she is making small noise and scratch my leg for food. Sometimes, it is tempting! We sometimes give her carrot, she loves it!

lydiaplant, puppies that age are not naughty and they don't have a bad attitude. THey don't know what you want from them unless you communicate it to them in a way that they understand. Smacking communicates that the owner is angry. With WHAT is left up to the dog to guess, and usually they guess wrong.
I second the suggestion to look at the FAQ particularly this one:
http://www.dogforum.org/showthread.php?t=5187

And for the record, yes it IS harsh to tell someone asking for help that they are not suited to owning a dog.
