Puppy correction

Is it ok to give a slight neck shake when correcting a puppy ?

I don't use anything and asking if grabbing the loose skin on the neck and giving a slight shake bad or good that's all

No.

Most puppies will get riled up by this, and the bad behavior will just be exasperated (like if you do this when your puppy bites they will probably just get more worked up, and bite more).

What behavior are you trying to correct? Different behaviors often have different ways of correcting, but do not shake your dog. You want to teach and earn respect, not scare and/or manhandle your dog.

Be consistent. I sound like a broken record these days as I teach Bruce what is and isn't allowed in our house, and I am constantly having to get up and show him what I expect (like guiding him off the Christmas tree lol), but persistence and patience will pay off.

Would it be cook if I grabbed you by the neck and shook you?


Anyways, no, I would not do this. With my puppy I'd tell him "no" firmly and then showed him what was okay. He learned this way with no harsh corrections.

Ok thanks for the good advice it was concerning him biting everything and also biting me and my wife's hands and hair lol. The yelping and time outs seem to not go so well but like you said with patience and persistence everything will fall in place.

The "ouch", and losing a play mate (as in most bite inhibition articles) really does work, but some puppies take longer to get it. Bruce is quite the biter when he gets worked up, but I've noticed in the last 2 days he has finally started to get it. I say "ouch" and he lays down and licks my arm (as typically he only bites when I'm at "his level" when we play and train). Does he always stop biting the next time? No, but he's a baby and they forget. We just continue to do this, and he is (slowly lol) catching on, and thinking about it before he just bites (and play biting less).

You're welcome Some puppies get it faster than others. I have had pups who figured this out quite quickly, and some who were persistent with it for quite some time. In the end though persistence always paid off.

She's a cutie by the way (the trouble makers are always cute ).

Fin grabed my hair and bit my hands.
Its what they do to explore and play..
Redirect with toys if he still persists then take yourself out of the situation.
Just go into another room for few minutes and then back and show him toys he can bite etc.
Biting should be allowed just he has to learn on what he can bite.

Redirection with toys and walking away from the puppy worked best for me. When he bit I stuck a toy in his mouth, when he growled too much (for my taste as a 8 week old pup) I calmly got up and walked away. Obviously I didn't ignore him for hours on end, but until he calmed down.

IMHO lay off "The Dog Whisperer"... join a puppy class ASAP and bond with your girl.
