Aspen Posted June 8, 2013 Report Share Posted June 8, 2013 I have had my dog for 8 days now. He is starting to have some issues and I want to nip them in the bud before they really do become BIG issues. Problem #1: riding in the car. At first he was very good in the car. Now as soon as we are in the car he starts getting very rough with me. He bites at me, tries to get in my lap and bite my hands, bites the shifter, makes growly whiney noises and tries to lunge at me. He also tries to hump my arm in the car! It is a very dangerous situation. He MUST learn to ride nice in the car. He is less naughty in the back but tends to tear things up back there. I guess putting him in the back is the solution, Problem #2: Tonight my son left a piece of a baguette in the back seat of the car when he was dropped off someplace. I had put the puppy back there for a short trip not thinking about the bread. Well I went to take him out of the car away from the bread he was now tearing into and he snapped at me very badly. I yelled no loudly. I let him go and he went back to the bread and when I tried to take it he again snapped at me and bit my hand a little. Again I yelled no and removed him from the bread and we went inside my MIL's house so I could do barn chores. Inside someone had put a chicken bone down for the cat and the puppy went for it. I was able to remove that from his mouth with out trouble. Problem #3: Putting on and taking off the leash. He is snapping and biting in a nasty way when I do this. Just a few minutes ago when I had put him on a tie out while I finished putting my chickens to bed he got ugly and bit my hand. He did not break skin but it is sore and swollen Other than this he is very smart and seems very trainable. I try to keep him busy with different toys and activities along with some training, I understand their need for exercise and work. He tends to play a little rough but not terribly (although our 4 year old beagle does seem to think he is the spawn of Satan) It has been raining for days here and I have not gotten to take him out to walk or play as much as I did when I first brought him home but I would not think that would turn him into an aggressive dog! (not sure why my writing went all slanted, I did not make it do that on purpose and could not change it back) How do I train him for these issues?
