I am having some problems with my 5 months old Staffie pup.
I am still training her to stay in the crate when I want her too. She is ok now to stay in the crate while i vacuum and mop the floor and she will sleep in the crate at night in the living room, whe will only wake me up when she needs to go out to poo (which is usually in the morning after my alarm goes off)
Anyway, she gets extremely excited when there are visitors. She means no harm but she just gets soo excited and over friendly that can be overwhelming for the visitors and often put scratches on the visitors.
So I tried to put her in her crate when there are visitors, but she will just whine and whine, so noisy that we can hardly have a quiet conversation. I know she just wants to get out there to say hello, but her approach is just a bit out of hand sometimes.
Yes, she does get quiet if i give her a kong/bone and she will chew them quietly in her crate.
I am thinking of calling in a one on one trainer to my house, but thought i will ask around on the forum first.
My pup has completed puppy class and did pretty well, so I guess she is 'train-able' thus I want to try first before calling in a trainer. nad she is going for her first level obedience in a few weeks.
Thank you very much
