Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Nippy puppy   Sat Jun 29, 2013 10:26 am

Have had loki almost 1 week and he is doing good. He is now 14-15 weeks. This morning he sat by back door to go potty. He knows sit to no end and does it immediately on command. He is getting better with his name, come, off, inside, outside, down, and out. Knowing all when I have treats or his food.

However he is pretty nippy as in he will be licking then do nips. This is often when he seems pretty calm too or mildly excited. I yelp when he nips me and that seems to work and then give him bone little while later. So he is getting better with me. He does not nip my male dog at all. My bengal cat can now walk or run by him with no reaction about 50% of time. Where I have issues is with my female dog and other cat. Both like loki it seems. However he will get rough with them. Going from licking to nipping. My female dog wimpers slightly and will walk away. My cat just jumps to high ground. He gets mad at them then and barks at them when they refuse him. He does not really get close to my bengal cat.

Not sure how to best handle. My older pets do not like to be nipped or barked at. Is this when time out should be good? His options for time out would be bathroom, yard since I can watch him from window, or do I use his crate? I never used my current dogs crates for time out. Just curious if any suggestions.

Personally, I'd let them work out among themselves. He really wont learn that the older dogs don't like it if they don't tell him so. He'll get the hint eventually that doing that means playing stops (because your female gets up and walks away.) That should be enough to help him learn. Never ever use the crate for punishment, it should only be associated with good things.

Ok. I will just watch them close. Yeah I though strange to use crate for time out too when I read it some where. Thanks!
