I just got a new 6month old puppy. I was wondering the best way to train him what his name is. I also was trying to figure what is best to train him what's wrong (spray bottle, loud noise (bike horn), or something else). For comming from a breeder who let hime just live semi-freeley with his adults outside and sleeping in his bed at night, the puppy is a very well mannered pup who doesn't destroy things in his crate. although he starting to get a little more used to his new home and tried to take my sheet off to play with it and likes to run straight to my parents room whenever he sees it.I know you are all going to ask, yes I will post a picture soon and his name is Medjai. He is a 6 month old tricolor with a white spot on the neck but not a white neck. He is my first dog, but I grew up with 3 different dogs with my parents. we just got the newest dog in 2001 wich brings me to my next question.
My mutt (born in 2001, 45lbs. around 26") has been neutered and doesn't mind the puppy, but the puppy (not neutered and planning on being shown/bred) growls at the mutt and tried to lunge when they were both on leashes. (my dad had the mutt). we tried to get them to be civil several times with no success so far. and I was looking for tips to get them used to each other, so the pup can go outside and play with the mutt in the back yard.
Any and all advice will be great.
