i really need to go sit withthe puppies that i just scolded badly... they ar tooooooo vocal the y are not barking now... and i want to go be friendly before they start again... those 4 black pups are spoiled rotten.. which is cute now... but at 150 pounds it is life threatening ( theirs) so i had to go sit with them and pat them when the were quiet and ( gently) smack noses that either barked or bit me. has to be-- now is the time....
problem is--- they get to screaming and sitters spread food which does quiet them-- but also teadches them to scream... objuect is to anticipate the hunger and spread 2 cuops of dry food for a snack before they start to scream...
so i can't get 2 thoughts together othr than deal with those 4 pups... when they sit quietly ii pat nd praise if they bark and bite they get a sharp no-- which affects them all unless you swing at the one who made the noise... it takes a very critical timing effort for the barking pup to be the one in a group, to get the message.. while not making timid souls of the rest...
i must run again... i almost have it down to steve's one pointed finger....with a dominant glare.
