Has anyone used the Pet corrector spray for training? Our trainer suggested it to use when our 11 week old puppy chases our 5 year old Grandaughter and nips at her legs. This really scares our Grandaughter as Maggie's teeth are like needles. She will be coming over today and I will be using it for the first time. It is air in a can that you spray (not at them) when they are doing something such as biting and the noise makes them stop. Anyone try this?
Use a shaker can - bleach bottle with a handful of rocks, or gravel in it. Slam it on your leg whenever the dog does something you don't like with an appropriate command such as OFF etc. Your dog will be scared the first time you do it and you shouldn't have to do it to many times after that...
It's a training issue for your puppy AND the grandchild. NO shrieking, no running, no flailing of arms around puppy. Puppy does not understand that kind of behavior and thinks it's an invitation to chase and bite. I agree w/ above-- leash/long line on puppy, or crate if child is running around. Kids need to be taught nurturing skills, and I'd recommend the only time child is w/ puppy is if child is sitting on the floor and puppy is invited into her lap where she can pet the puppy NICELY. Never allow child to pick up puppy as at some point, she will be dropped and potentially injured.
