Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Nasty nipping - New puppy
« on: July 30, 2008, 03:59:07 am »
My new Leonberger puppy is very nippy - and does not stop when prompted with an 'ehh ehh'!
He even gets more aggitated when I raise my voice and say 'NO' - trying to come back at me for more  :'(
I am now trying the 'getting up and leaving him alone with his thoughts' routine - but not really seeing any breakthrough as yet....

anyone any suggestions?

I have just purchased a Leonberger puppy (now 10 weeks old) and whilst he is great I am a little concerned that as a large breed dog he had been weaned onto a normal puppy biscuit ....
I was under the impression with some large breed dogs that this encourages them to grow too quickly and can lead to joint problems later in life?
He also doesnt seem to chew this small biscuit at all and doesnt have much of an appetite for them.  Dont get me wrong he put 1.7kg on in a week when we got him! - and he is beautifully formed (not fat - not underweight - but nice and well proportioned)
I was wondering if any other large breed owners could offer any advice?
