I think all of us, with the possible exception of CreatureTeacher, have roared at our pups at one time or another, lol! It passes. Even Shiva the Terrible is turning into a well mannered (most of the time) grrrrl now that she is over two years old. And there was a time when her name was often "Dammitshiva"

That's so true, it's not even funny.

This is so true.

I'd be in a mental hospital right now if it wasn't for these people. I'd have never gotten past 10 weeks. lol

Rocky I mean, he was the most mischeivous puppy I'd ever known... don't feel bad if you thought yelling at him was bad... lol

I agree too, Boris has made me really insane, I was crying the first days I got him and was that close to giving him away. Yesterday Tips peed on the floor (no accident for a week then it started, I was half expecting it though), then started walking in it and trying to catch the paper towel when I was cleaning it, I yelled, but he didn't care. I've probably yelled at Boris quite a few times too...

So reading the forums has helped me and made me realize that in a year or so it should be much better at least.

my mom ran a licensed daycare for most of my life and is the only human i have ever seen that didn't roar..not once. How she did it i don't know, but i tell ya one thing, her silence can be absolutely deadly. I do believe i have heard my dogs roar on occasion themselves. When Bronki was a pup he was lucky enuff to have a daddy dog. A wonderful patient father that let those puppies climb over him, pull his ears, he played and taught them gentleness, where to hike in the yard so it wasn't in the play area..he was a total blessing. but one day, Bronki was about 10 weeks old or so, right around there and was walking between his father's legs..directly under him and jumped up and bit his daddy you know where..Bin hopped straight up in the air turned around and roarrrrrrrrred at his son. It didn't change much cause once Bronki saw the reaction he did it a few more times before he figgered he better leave his daddy alone. Bin pinned him to the ground the last time, didn't bite him, but the roar could be heard around the earth. So i think it a natural reaction...one they understand in their own langauge as well as ours. How my mama kept her cool thru over 100 children still amazes me..in groups of up to 6, all under 6 years old, over a 25 year period of time. SHe was the queen of control...i am afraid i roar on occasion, like Bin, i got my limits.

Puppies will be puppies. That behavior just comes with the territory. Maybe next time (if there is a next time?) you should adopt an adult dog?

Lol after I got Boris I swore I would never have a puppy again. The good thing is that it's much easier and less stressful the second time.

Talking

i wanted a baby when Bronki died. I wanted to start with an infant because i believe so much calming encouraging nurturing training can be done at that stage that keep the frenzies down later. I thought about paying money for one, a pure breed of something i had dreamed about. For i don't know how long i will be able to have a puppy and i am fully aware of the work involved, i wanted to be fair all the way and if you can't walk a lot, and don't have the energy for a pup, then you shouldn't get one. So i debated, a friend even offered up 300 for what ever i chose to get. I didn't want to take my friend up on the offer, it was too generous and not the way i wanted things so i started looking at petfinder. To take a dog in at 5 mths that has had such a hard time, first the full length of a shelter, then to a kennel, no obedience, no handling hardly at all, he was so desperate to be loved he flung himself at you. he didn't sleep, or eat, just spazzzzed. IT took a lot of work, and i don't regret it for a second. Someone lost a wonderful pup. I wish i could give him back those first five months, it would have been so much easier on us both, but we worked thru this and so will everyone that adopts a puppy and goes the distance. They are just like children, toddler, terrible twos, ackward 8's omg teens...all in two years time. Adopting an adult dog is a wise idea for anyone that isn't going to be home or have the time to give "their child" but if you do and you will, there is nothing in this world i love more then a puppy. The time goes so fast..and can be so much fun that all the hard work is worth it. Take lots and lots of pics so you will always remember their baby days. You will be glad you did when they are all grown up
