My DAiSY is driving me crazy.....

DAiSY is now 5 months and I have had success in teaching her sit, shake, down and a cute one I call Dancing Bear, she is also good about sleeping in her crate and will go in willingly when I say go to bed. However, she will go pee and poo outside but inside as well and wants to eat her poo. She is taken out regularly and will some times still come in a pee right away. She does not like being told no or corrected and will do something bad on purpose. She is mean to our older toy poodle and bites her. She tries to chew on our hands and is just out of control with mischievous behavior. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to make me happy and DAiSY.

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like a lot going on. I would recommend a trainer. Dogs don't try to be mean. They are just doing typical dog things.

It sounds like Daisy is a very normal puppy! When puppies play with each other, they usually bite each other a lot. I can understand how your older dog doesn't want to play like a puppy any more. Make sure you have a lot of squeaky toys, chew toys or balls available so you can redirect Daisy's attention to a more appropriate type of play when she starts with the biting. If she tries to chew on your hand, make a high pitched "ouch" sound. She will recognize that she hurt you. Then get a toy for her instead.

Havanese are very smart but some take longer to potty train. It's frustrating they can learn some things so easily but just not "get it" with potty training. Riley took a full year, but when he finally got it, he really got it!

Even though he's 13 months old now, he will still take shoes to chew or he LOVES to shred paper so we know we have to keep those things out of reach. If he feels we're not paying enough attention to him, he will look to get a shoe or some paper so we will chase him to get it back. So I try as much as possible to pay attention to him when he's being good.

Havanese are very sensitive and they don't like being scolded so be gentle with her. I find the more exercise my dog gets the better behaved he becomes! That's been difficult lately because of the oppressive heat we've been having so I try to get him out early morning for some running around. I always say, a tired dog is a well behaved dog!

you have to learn how to not correct your dog but to change his perspectives. You may not realize what you're doing wrong. When someone tellls me they are going "crazy " with more than one issue, I think you need some help. Especilally when adolesence is right aroung the corner. Things will get worse .

She is improving on some of her bad behaviors and I know it will just take time. She is getting her first Rabies shot next week so I can take her to Doggie Daycare. I want her to be more socialized because right now she only knows us and our other dog Lilly, so I thought it would be good for her a few times a month. I was wondering if you may know, are their body temperatures normally hot? She sometimes feels really hot, on her foot pads, tongue and her belly.
Thanks Melissa
