My puppy is learning very fast. After 9 days she knows:
- her name
- get the toy
I am currently teaching her how to accept the leash. She is getting better at it.
When I am putting the leash on, she starts fighting and tearing it apart.
I distract her by putting her treats next to my left foot.
She eats and makes steps forward, I continue walking, she follows.
As soon as she starts biting the leash again, I tell her "come" and place the treat next to the left foot again. The steps are repeated again and again.
The exercise requires a lot of food. Knowing that pugs are prone to obesity, I take the treats from the portion of her regular meal. So the treats and the meals do not exceed the daily norm.
I have also read that I need to re-enforce my "No!" with an impact (like a high pitch sound or a squirt of water in the back), as currently, she does not have any respect to No!
So I am going to the pet shop tomorrow and will try to find some solution there.
