Biting

Nipping Puppy Biting In The Bud

It’s natural behavior for puppies to bite. As they begin to teethe, they naturally need things to chew on. Also, dogs generally prefer to use their mouths over their paws for manipulating objects, and this behavior begins in puppyhood as young pooches start to explore their world. It can be cute at the beginning, but a puppy’s teeth are very sharp and they don’t know how hard they’re biting, so the puppy raising experience will generally include that one moment when Fido playfully bites down on a finger and draws blood. Needless to say, this is not a behavior we

Puppy Feeding Guidelines

Hello, I am rescuing my first puppy next Monday. She’ll be 11.5 weeks when we get her, and I’ve never had a dog that young. The people fostering her are feeding her litter 3/4 cup twice a day. She’s an Australian shepherd/great pyrenees/golden retriever mix. I keep reading mixed things about feeding them twice or three times a day. Which do you recommend? And if it is three times a day, given that she’s almost three months old, how much would you feed her each time? I have an appointment with a vet on that Friday, but wanted to ask

Arrivals Without Departures

Today is the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which means that it’s the beginning of Advent. You may or may not have heard that term before, although you might know that this is when kids start opening up those calendars with the candy or toys hidden behind the little doors, one for each day leading up to Christmas. The term “advent” actually comes from the Latin word for arrival, and the holiday refers to expectation of the arrival of Jesus as an infant in Bethlehem — Christmas. But I’m going to be looking at it metaphorically today. Think about how

Nature And Nurture

There’s an old saying, “Like father, like son” — and, I suppose, “Like mother, like daughter.” This seems to imply that everyone is born to be the way they’re going to be and they’re going to be that way because of genetics. But how does a son really become like a father, or a daughter like a mother? They also say, “The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.” But that acorn still has to fall before it can grow, and the way it grows depends entirely on the circumstances it lands in. The same is true of puppies, and

Introducing A Puppy To The Pack

In order for a puppy to grow up into a balanced dog, she needs to be socialized from early on so she can learn the rules of how to be a dog.

Andre Millan pays a visit to Dog Psychology Center trainer Todd Langston for a live demonstration of two adult dogs with very different temperaments meeting a puppy for the first time, and how they negotiate space, and teach the new dog
