I have a german shephard pup of 11 wks old.
My problem is he likes to bite on my calf.
I have tried metods like giving him a dog chew, autoclaved chicken bones, and also physical punishment by giving a hard slap on his buttocks, but its not working. Can you help me ?

Hello Dr Ashok,

Congratulations on the new addition to your family!

You dog must be teething at the moment and will hence chew on anything he can. It is great that you are giving him lots of things to chew on. I sincerely advise you to begin his obedience training immediately, he must learn to understand the word 'NO' and obey your every command. For this, you will need to assume the role of his pack leader, his 'alpha male'. The Secrets to Dog Training package will help you do so. Every time does something undesirable, stand your ground and tell him a firm 'NO', you could even ignore him completely for a few minutes after this or put him in a 'time-out' zone to reinforce the idea that he has done something bad.

I hope this helps you.

Good luck with your new pet!

Thanks for your reply.
You have advised me to bye The secrets of dog training package.
In fact I byed the previous one in the hope that it wll satisfy all of my needs, but as mentioned earlier in my previous mail, it mentions only about toilet training.
Noe I will be thankful to You if you kindly let me the price of the package you have suggested and what exactly I shall get out of that.
I am now afraid that after byuing it , again you will suggest me to bye next one for my needs.
Thanks with regards.
Dr. Ashok Sonambekar.

I have a 4 month old German Shephard named Ursa. She is a very sweet dog but due to the lack of knowledge by her owners (me & my friend), she is a bit 'unruly.' Although she is smart as a whip and has learned many commands. I ordered the "Secrets to Dog Training" package last week. While I wait for its arrival, I have downloaded and started to read everything that is available on this site! Boy, does it make sense!!! I am looking at my pet with a new understanding and am eager to start the recommended solutions to the particular problems that I am encountering with Ursa. We are working on socialization (as we dont really have a lot of visitors to our home) and our vet recommended taking her to our local Pet Supplies Plus store. The staff and customers were so supportive of helping Ursa feel comfortable. We also took her to a local park and after awhile a man with 3 large dogs came up to us and asked if we would like them to meet. It was an awesome experience for Ursa and we really appreciated his assistance. So dont be afraid to introduce your dog to these types of interaction, it is wonderful way to socialize. Please correct me if I am wrong Kingdom of Pets. Cant wait for my package!!!

Hi Deborah,

Thank you for writing in to us and for your very kind words of praise We are truly pleased to hear that you are enjoying our ebooks. They are filled with handy little tips, aren't they? I am sorry to tell you that there isn't a hard-copy version of the ebooks, you are most welcome to print relevant sections to Ursa's training.

How is the training getting along? We would love to hear how Ursa is going and help you in any way we can. It is fantastic that you are socializing her. It is crucial that this occurs when they are between two and six months of age as they learn all their doggie manners during this time. Most of the dog fights that occur at dog parks etc., are due to a dog who isn't able to correctly interpret the behaviour of another dog - which goes back to lack of socialisation at a young age.

All the very best to you and Ursa, we are pleased to have you both as part of the Kingdom of Pets family.

Kind regards,

Hello there. I am hoping someone can help me. I have a year old GSD. He is obedience trained, however, he nips my kids' friends on the arm. I am not sure if he is playing, but he never fully bites down and he does not have an agressive stance, etc. However, my kids friends are quite weary of him and we have begun to put him in his crate when they are over. Most of these kids he has been around since he was 8 weeks old. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for writing in to us and sorry to hear about the issues you are having with your pet.

From what you have described, it seems like your dog is just playful. Does he have a history of play-fighting as a puppy? Were these kids the ones he used to play rough with as a puppy? Is it just kids of a certain age or any child? And lastly, are they playing with him or fussing over him when he gets nippy?

I look forward to your reply, we shall further discuss things thereafter.
