I was wondering if anyone had any advice or resources about how to train your pup to be more careful around children?
Zulu is only 8 weeks, but when he is around the kids (1.5 and 3.5 years old), he gets very excited and often jumps up on them or starts tugging at their clothes. This is also done if the kids have their backs to Zulu. There is no malice in it, but I just want to know what to do in that situation.
It might be a simple as telling Zulu in a loud and firm manner to "STOP" or "THATS NOT NICE", or getting himn to sit by offering some kibble (but i dont always have kibble close by when needed)
It might be as simple as carry some kibble on me and
The idea of getting a puppy was for the kids to be comfortable with dogs, so i dont want them to be frightened of Zulu.
Look forward to hearing from you guys.
