Little stinker

Apparently 10 weeks is the point when my lab pup realizes he can growl, bark, and do both when he's told NO. Its like early teen years for a human. Got my hands full now! So how do you discipline a pup?

Cooter, thats a handsome puppy. Mine turned 10 weeks today, I have a yellow female. She is doing all the same things as yours and can be quite the drama queen. Beware the worst is yet to come. They haven't even hit puberty yet.....lol

My suggestion, start working on obedience. Mine has sit and lay down pretty well down pat already. Keep it upbeat and fun though, they are just babies. When she is acting up I have her sit and praise the heck out of her. It distracts her from what she is doing and rewards her for obeying. At this age I prefer to reward them for good behavior instead of disciplining. For the serious offenses though, I can growl a pretty mean NO and thats enough discipline for now. She gets the point that is not what she should be doing. This was taken this evening during our little 5 minute obedience routine, practicing down.

LOL, our 11 week old Great Dane figured out his bark on Monday. We're just sticking with a firm "NO" right now and a little twist of the jowel (recommended by breeder). We started puppy kindergarten last night, which I would highly recommend.

My buddy brought his 1 year old lab over the other night and those two had a blast chasing each other around the back yard. Floyd was excited to finally meet a dog he could rough-house with.

Cooter,

Nice young pup. You are about a month or so away from puppy school age. So for now it might just be getting used to your environment and the pup taking charge of what you offer up. You can always just scoop him up and crate him. Use the "quiet" command, might be better than just NO as the pup will hear that enough as it gets older. You can also alpha roll him and hold him down and stare into his eyes until he takes his focus from you. That means he gave up. You win. His mom would grab him by the muzzle and lay on him or even utter a low growl, letting him know he is not in charge. Nothing too forceful now. He is just starting to develop his own personality but you still need to be regarded as the final say. Just basic stuff now. Try getting him on a leash and working with him to walk at your side. This will get his focus on other things. Short sessions and then back in the crate.

Place one hand around the muzzle and gently squeeze giving the command quiet or shut up.

The training school we go to will take dogs as young as 8 weeks. Might be worth checking out. We had our second class last night and are doing pretty well.

You have a very good looking pup there. The yellow lab is quite the gal also. That great dane looks good too.

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.
    • nw wisconee private marsh
    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.
    • seeing I will not have a bonus tag the does are safe at Ripley but a buck will need to be wall hanger before I shoot 
    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
