Yes, owner training. Or did you think "it's all my puppy's fault"? Quite the contrary.
Think about it: The kind of Puppy Socialization and Puppy Training that we undertake solely depends on the training that we received ourself! What we know about socialization and training, the importance of it, how to do it, etc. Everything we do with and for our puppy depends on what we've learned ourself.
Since we cannot change our pup's heredity and earlier upbringing, ALL of our puppy's behavior we can only change if we are willing to learn what we need to change ourself, in our own behavior. While this may seem shocking to some, I find it exciting. Because this makes clear that we can influence everything, if only we are willing to learn what it takes.
"OMG, I can't sit back and relax??" - Yes, you can, you can learn everything from the comfort of your armchair or couch. That easy it is. I said we must be willing to learn. Most dog owners that are surfing the world wide web to post their HELP! requests (like that, yes) onto websites they before didn't even know exist, are not willing to learn. Heck, they aren't even willing to READ!! They prefer to wildly post questions for which others have provided proven answers years earlier.
Here, even for free: Every MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL serves the purpose to train dog owners in what they need to learn to prevent all the puppy problems and adult dog problems that other dog owners are facing.
But what if dog owners subscribe too late and they are already facing puppy behavior problems?
Then our free Periodicals train dog owners how to solve their problems, and how to prevent further behavior problems. But we cannot solve your problems for you. No one can. That's why I said we must be willing to learn what we need to change ourself.
And what if you don't want to wait years worth of free Periodicals?
Then the quickest shortcut to train yourself how to behave well with your puppy so that your puppy behaves the way you want may well be to see and hear LIVE in full MULTIMEDIA at your own speed how to raise a well-behaved and healthy puppy. You are lucky, we've got that: the New Puppy Diary.
Note that every key point raised above you can find more comprehensively explained in other places on this website. Here, links have been omitted only to keep this decision tree straightforward.
PLEASE NOTE: Posting a fragment of your overall dog problem in the comments below is not going to help. Provide complete details if you really seek the right solution. Of course we have a page for that as well: Dog Problem Consultation.
