Talking I have a clever puppy!

I really want to tell everybody how clever my puppy is. She is only less than 10 weeks old. We trained her to "sit". Even if we are playing with her, and saying "sit", she immediately sits. What a clever girl!

Also, my husband taught her "fetch". Her favourite toy is a kitchen cloth. On the first day she arrvied at our home, she started biting the kitchen cloth. Since then, it is her favourite toy, even though she had many many other toys.

We had a toy of "farty bear". If we squeeze the bear, it makes "fart noisy" and says "Oh, pardon me!". First of all, Bang gu was a bit scared, but now she knows it is her toy.

We still haven't managed her not biting us. She still thinks we are playing with her. And, also pooing and peeing outside need to learn. But, we are getting somewhere!

Also, she has grown up quite a lot. I am so glad we could keep her as my husband allegry to her got better.

Thats great.

Poppy also likes her kitchen towel with a knot tied in it. I've also dipped her towel in watery gravy, then froze it. They like that because the coolness is nice on their teeth!

Poppy sometimes has accidents in the house too (she is 11 weeks old). The only time she has an accident though is when I'm not watching her. If I watch and let her out as soon as I suspect she might do something, she is fine.

As for biting - give her lots of chews and chew toys. Ignore biting and try to distract her with something else. Poppy is learning quite well now that if she bites....playtime is over! I take my hand away and ignore her for about a minute. Then I start play again.

That is great Lydia, puppy or dogs being trained I feel the best reward if throwing them a rolled towel. Giving treats is not my thing. Sorry, but pet n praise and a reward of not eating all the time, but like the K=9 force, Police, throw a tennis ball or towel and the dog feels great. Good for you all working puppies like that, it is what I love to hear about ones I sell in search n rescue, bomb detecting. Next litter is going into narcotic work etc. The best to all of you working with success, keep it up!!!

Glad to hear you are making progress! Somethings are quick and others take time. I think the nipping is the worst as far as trying your patience, but it sounds like you are on the right track. Well done!

well done! she sounds fab, she is very cute... as for the the nipping, when she does it i would just get up and walk away so she learns she doesnt play or get any attention when she does this!
