Default Oh no...little Miss rebel here

Hello forum,

Well I think little Ms Basil is going through some rebeling stages I noticed she LOVES to test us now...and see how far she can get away with things It's not bugging me...it's kinda funny. If we are eating pop-corn or whatever, she'll creep up and take the whole bowl Does anyone know what I should be expecting from a 12 week old pup?

12 weeks? That's pretty early for that kind of thing. I thought it was more like 8 months!
It may not be bugging you now, but what about when she is full-grown? YOu may want to start getting her out of any bad habits before she thinks it is her right to do what she wants.
Good luck!

Ah, how does she manage to get the popcorn - are you leaving it somewhere she can easily pinch it?

Yes you need to stop it now, good luck

At 12 weeks she is still a baby. She is not being naughty or testing you, she just does what comes naturally until you teach her any different, and that includes eat. If you want her to learn to behave as an adult dog you have to watch her carefully at this stage to prevent her making mistakes and learning bad habbits. Don't leave any food or chewable items at puppy level unless you are watching her intently.

If you are this annoyed at simple puppy antics which really aren't intended to test you, you're going to lose your mind when your pup reaches 6-8 months. THAT is the true testing stage. I am currently surviving it with Shippo. >@[email protected]<

If she is coming up and eating your popcorn, it's because she either does not know it's wrong, or she only thinks it's wrong when you're looking, because she is only corrected when yu see her doing it. Keep the food you are eating our of her reach, and just prevent the problem. Out of sight, out of mind.

Wow, you are all too right on that statement. Orchid is just now turning 6 months old, and she is so very naughty! And stubborn! Oh my! The stunts she used to try as a puppy, but was corrected for, she's starting to do again!

Such as stealing food (much like the OP's 12 week old pup) jumping on people, play biting (we don't allow that) chasing the kitty, chewing things she KNOWS she's not supposed to!

It's like having a teenager!

Anyway, sorry to vent! Back to the OP:
Yes, correct her/him while you have the chance. If you don't correct her now, she'll only be worse when she grows up. Trust me!

Now I allow play biting if *I* am the one who initiates the rough play. The reason is that he only way a dog can learn bite inhibition is through play-biting. Bite inhibition is very important for, say, if the dog is pushed to its limits and ends up biting. If the dog has good bite inhibition, chances are it will cause very little damage if any at all, because it as learned to be soft-mouthed with humans. >^_^<

Just a thought.
