My boxer puppy has growled at me several times. What should I do?
You never said if this pup is 12 weeks old, or 7 months old...so...HOW OLD IS THIS "PUPPY"???
The answer to your question lies completely in the age of the puppy. However, an obedience class for any pup 16 weeks or over is in order...especially these very smart, very active...police-type dogs (yes, you'll find Boxers being used in Schutzhund and other police type competitions)...they have a wonderful temperment, however ALL dogs will take over leadership, if their master/mistress is not willing to be the leader.
Keep in mind also..."discipline" is NOT punishment...think of it as the same as you leaning table manners...THAT'S discipline.
Puppys are like children you have to discipline them when their young or else you'll never get them to behave when they grow up. And another good thing is to make sure your puppy has lots of toys and you take him out and play. Puppys have lots of energy.
He is 9 weeks old and we have had him for 1 week.
give the puppy a chew toy or a dog bone.-
just play police dog with him...
dont feed him for a year!
Give him a kiss!
