My puppy barks too much

I don't know what is happening to him. Everytime he sees me eat something he jumps on me and barks like crazy. He wakes me up at 4 in the morning and I dont know why he starts barking. I tried putting him on my bed but then he starts biting me. He has a pad so I don't think that he wants to go outside. What have I gotten myself into?

He is trying to tell you something and it is you that will have to figure it out, lol. Maybe he is hungry? Potty time? Exercise time? Play time?

I'll take the easy one first. It seems when you are eating, that he jumps on you and barks that he wants some of your food? if this is the case, and the behavior is unwanted you need to change the behavior. for me here's two options:

1) ignore, meaning leave the dog's presence. don't say anything just leave, every time he does it.

2) give him a time out 3-5 minutes, a separate room away from everyone else, door closed. do this every time he does the unwanted behavior.

good luck.

have you given him food from the table before?

How old is he? wondering if he is in adolesence.

You comment, "What have I gotten myself into..." I am curious if you researched this breed and studied training and socializing. Havs are incredible dogs, so very smart and truly want to make thier people happy, BUT this doesn't happen all on it's own!! They need to have a good start from an ethical breeder and come into a home that is educated and willing to do what is neccesary to raise a productive member of the family.

Have you taken your hav to any puppy classes?? This type of behavior isn't that hard to get under control IF you have guidance from a GOOD trainer. and tons of patience.

And demand barking isn't something the breeder caused. This is something they learn later... in their forever home.

Sounds like you've got a lot ahead of you - finding out if your puppy is sick (from the shavanese post) and finding out how to raise a Havanese puppy!

yeah, your pup might just be, acting like a teenager. great dogs aren't born, they are made. raising a puppy isn't easy. but hang in there! you can do it.
