Biting: Puppies use their mouths on everything. When they play together, they bite each other. When one puppy bites another too hard, the victim yelps, then the first puppy lets go and learns to bite more gently next time. Train your puppy not to bite by yelping when he bites you hard. Then gradually yelp softer with softer bites. Soon, he will learn to control himself so he doesn't damage that unbelievably sensitive human skin.

Another method would be to rub a stick of butter (cold) lightly over the backs of your hand. The puppy should instinctively lick the back of your hand. The puppy should learn that the hand is to be licked not bitten.

Jumping: You may think it's cute when a puppy jumps up to greet you, but when that puppy grows up to be 150 pounds of dog, or when his paws are muddy, you (and your guests) will not be so happy. Be consistent and start early to train your puppy not to jump up.

If your young puppy jumps up, simply walk backwards. Say "Off" and praise and reward the puppy when all four feet are on the ground. You can also have the dog sit whenever he is greeting newcomers. This way he has an alternative, positive behavior he can substitute for jumping. If your dog needs more control, put a leash on him until he learns to receive company politely.

Still having trouble? Have a friend come to the door over and over again. Instruct the dog to sit each time the friend enters. Reward him for the correct behavior. Frequent repetition may make jumping up a less exciting experience for your dog and, at the same time, reinforce correct behavior enough to help him form a new, positive habit. Do this exercise at least 10 times. Twenty is even better!

Submissive Urination: Exciting events trigger a piddling urge in some dogs. This is called submissive urination. Never correct a dog for this problem; scolding only makes it worse and the dog becomes even more submissive. Instead, ignore your dog for 10 minutes when you first come home or when people come to the door. Let him outside to potty immediately.

If problems persist, consult a professional for help with dog obedience. Though a dog's natural, instinctive behaviors can get him into trouble in our society, he can learn to live within our rules. However, we sometimes need to help him adapt!

Housebreaking: You can make house training a dog much quicker by following tips. Take the puppy outside after he eats, sleeps, plays/exercises, or comes out of the crate. Praise him verbally and with a pat when he does his business. Then go immediately inside.

This will show him the purpose of going outside. I would not recommend leaving the dog out in the yard all day, because it confuses house training a dog process. For the first two to three days — while you’re home with him — put the puppy in his crate with something to chew so that he associates the crate with good things. Let him stay in the crate for an hour, then take him out and immediately go outside. Do this twice or three times per day. You can use a modified puppy schedule to train an un-house trained dog or one that’s having house training a dog problems.

A puppy can be expected to “hold it” for the number of hours that matches his age in months. So a four-month-old puppy can only be expected to hold it for four hours. This is true up to about 10 hours. That’s as long as any dog should be expected to hold it. House training a dog must include dog behavior tips for rapid results.
