Training a puppy
My kids thought it would be a good idea to buy " me " a dog for my birthday.

So, now I've got a 12 week old blue staffy who is almost house trained.

But, she keeps nipping and biting ; how to i discipline her?


I could've just whomailed Northern Sold.

You actually should put your fingers in his/her mouth, whilst young, get them used to it. Our old dog would never let us near her mouth because we didn't do it when we were young - she'd snap your hand off. At puppy school with the new dog, they encouraged us to do it, and guess what? It works, we can put our fingers in to retrieve stuff she shouldn't be eating etc etc

Another tip is to socialize the dog whilst its young, they might get a big boisterous to start off with, but will settle down, and you'll be grateful you did it further down the line.

Baby staffs will nip and bite mate. Will probably get a bit worse when they start teething.

Don't let your hands in his / her mouth ever.

Make sure you are very stern with it from Day 1. Don't encourage boisterous behavior.

But FFS cheer up, I promise having a dog is one of the best things you'll do!

I know you're probably kidding SS but that is the sure fire way to raise a dangerous dog.

Carrot and stick. More carrot than stick. Teddy has the right idea and as sold said 12 weeks is really young so they'll be mouthy. Staffies are really affectionate and dedicated to their owners. Fantastic dogs

Re: Training a puppy
Push her onto her side and hold her down with your hand in a claw position on the top of her shoulder until she is calm. It represents how a mother reprimands her pups.

Also when you get to take her for a walk, let her off the lead when it is safe to do so and walk away. She will naturally follow you which is good training if you then call her as she runs after you. It takes some courage at first but if the bitch thinks your her parent it is her instinct to follow you and saves a lot of aggravation later.

Needless to say it needs to be quiet and no distractions around.

Re: Training a puppy
If she nips, a large exaggerated yelp from you, to outline boundaries a short period of ignoring her, then praise, repeat if it continues. I had a Boxer, mad as fuck , and worked for him early on and into adulthood
