Alpha Rolling

Hi all

My Dad wants to alpha roll my puppy when she is really excited and jumps up or mouths. I tell him to turn his back on her when she jumps but he says that he just gets dirt on his back. He also says that it is working well because she knows he is boss.

please help

Puppy Pulling on the Lead

Hi all I have a very stubborn 4 1/2 month old German Shepherd puppy who pulls on the lead constantly.

Dried liver is really good because you can break it into small bits, it's strong smelling and is not to messy.

VS book and a lot in her shows says that you have to be the leader and I think that is what was meant by Em's "pack leader" and not what usually comes to mind when we hear pack leader the dominance training.

Make sure you are the boss. If she is the boss then when you go away she will think she has to look after you but she can't get to you. This causes her to become anxious. You have to be the pack leader.

So that their won't be brown patches on the lawn and it will be easier to pick up her poo. When she makes a mistake we just ignore her an...

When she jumps up try turning your back on her. The minute she stops jumping and sits down reward her. Repeat this exercise lots of times.

Dogs often eat cat poo because cat food is high in protein. That makes their poo smell and taste nice.To dogs :!:
