We recently adopted a new puppy named Kyra she is a Yellow lab Malimute mix (4 months old (see picture)). We have never had a mixed dog before. The malimute in her seems to be the stuborn part. Our previous dog Storm was a Black lab and never had the issues we are having with Kyra. First of all she Bites, not nipping, biteing and somtimes drawing blood. She also chews on anything not nailed down. She is also a digger and believes my mother is her subordanant (she picks on my mom. We have tried "NO" and putting her outside. We have tried the "bad noise" we have even tried a flick accross the snout when she bites but she seems to think everything is a game. She is also partially potty trained but will pee on the carpet if she doesn't get her own way. Any Suggestions would be helpful.
Google all the information you can get on "Nothing in life is for free" training. Second the biting, there should never be any scolding or hitting. Start some training ASAP. Housetraining should be started as well. How is the puppy fed and how does he react when your close to the bowl.
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
