How to help the new puppy get over issues?
I know there are many opinionated pet owners here - good! I need some ideas!
We adopted our second dog, Loki a few weeks ago. He's a 42lb Husky/Shep/Mutt, we are his 4th home that I know of. We've rehabbed a different pup with abuse/health issues and are hoping to have a similar level of success with this one. Here are the issues:
Urinates in the house - Not as a rule, but it happens more than it should. We take him out every 2 hours - sometimes he will go outside and urinate, then be back in the house and urinate again - a lot!
Speaking of that - he eliminates far more frequently than normal, with far more than is normal - am working with the vet an monitoring this - no idea what it's about yet. So, the indoor elimination may be related to this.
He's mouthy/teethy - He explores everything with his teeth! He's a bit snappy as well, I've tried the yelp and ignore method - that makes him more aggressive (but not violently aggressive). I've tried the calm "No snap" and he gets it - TBC
