Hi everyone this is my first post here so Hello
I apologise if this has been answered somewhere else, I did a few searches and it didn't turn up anything relevant so I thought I'd post it here.
I've just got a crossbreed (Golden Retriever mum and Kelpie /Cattle dad) pup and he seems fairly intelligent (I bet most people think that about their dogs though).
On day 1 I started training him with positive reinforcement techniques ie food rewards and one of those clickers, he's doing very well, it's only day 3 and he already runs to get in front of me and sits hoping for a treat even when I'm not actively training him.
My problem is that he has very sharp teeth and he is way too enthusiastic to get to the treat during training. As a result I now have several puncture holes and cuts in my fingers.
Someone must have had this issue out there, any advice would be appreciated.
