New Member - All Black Mini Schnauzer Reggie from Montreal, Canada

Post  jackytoad on Fri Dec 28, 2012 4:54 am

Hi Everyone,

Jessie here from Montreal, Canada. My wife and I just brought home an all black mini schnauzer. We named him Reggie. I'm happy to find this forum. We are both really into going in all the right directions for our little Reggie. He has a pretty calm demeanor however he has his moments of excitement like every puppy.

Anything I should look out for? He's 10 weeks old at the moment. Right now he's really nippy and shows small signs of mounting which i'm not too happy about but will have to monitor and correct as time goes on.

Thanks everyone!

You need to correct that nipping every time it happens. I pinch the puppy's lip, while staring him in the eye and roaring in his face (like a lion). Usually only a couple corrections are necessary.

Practice "Nothing in Life is Free" with him; he needs to learn that you are alpha and he is not.

Another thing I like to do with a dominant puppy such as yours is to do a "Long Down" with him at least three times a week. Scroll down to the "Training the Natural Way" article. Long Down
