I need some help when trying to discipline my puppy please

When she is naughty i shout at her and point my finger, sometimes give a bop on the nose. But she has now started to try and nip when i shout at her and barks back at me!

What am i doing wrong and how can i stop her doing this?

Thanks Ben

Jumping on the sofa gets a shouting at
stealing food gets a shouting at
chewing things she isnt supposed to - usual answer for this is all pups do but at the end of the day she shouldnt thats why she gets a shouting at.
only bop her when she bites.

Ok.. well obviously shouting at her is doing absolutely nothing.. i believe prevention is far better than cure and can't understand why someone would shout at a puppy.. you wouldn't just shout at a baby now would you.. you see.. you need to teach an animal, shouting only teaches the animal to be scared..

So how old is pup... and have you been teaching pup sit and down.. and no?

Re: problems when trying to discipline my puppy

Yes she sits on command and lies down on command when we have her attention. She is 9 weeks old. And NO is what i shout at her probably should have made that a bit more obvious lo. I shout "shyla, no" she chews the carpet which is not really preventable to be honest.

We have a clicker which she is amazing with, but when she goes on one of her rampages she doesnt respond to anything. Was wondering what other peoples methods were when there dog is naughty.

Well I have had Bobby here since he was 6 weeks.. and to be honest I have other dogs so dont experience a rampage.. but.. I taught him straight away.. sit and down.. When he greets someone I say down and when he was a bub.. I would tell them one hand on his back one on his chest and fuss him in the sat position.. he now greets people with a sit..
The way we say things might be not mean anything to a pup.. 9 weeks old is very young and therefor we should prevent situations.. Have you got a crate?
If it was my puppy And they jumped on the furn and I didn't want them to I would say.. nooooo and take them down.. and repeat...
Puppies will chew anything given the opportunity.. You need to take there mind off it.. so if you notice pup is going to chew.. immediately do something to distract pup.. If pup picks something up it shouldn't I do an excited call to get there attention and make them think I am more exciting.. this usually leads to pup giving me item without it being an issue.. I refuse to chase the pup round the house, and creating a game.. I think crate training is great.. but this shouldn't be used as a punishment place.. but maybe sometimes a bit of a time out place.. You have probably only had your pup a week.. So you need to start now as you mean to go on.. and pointing and shouting isn't the way.. I dont know what type of puppy you have or what you feed.. cause this also can hae a big bearing on your puppies behaviour..

Re: problems when trying to discipline my puppy

Personally I find it a lot easier to show someone what I mean rather than put it on paper.. if ya get me..

Cool. A bit more info from me then. She is a husky x collie. Had her since sunday so yes exactly a week. We have a crate but she doesnt like it. She yelps like mad and we are rtying to get her used to it by leaving it open with her food in it but she only goes in there when she must i.e to feed or for water. I dont chase her at all i call her until she comes then hold her until she listens to my sit command. She is very good with other people although she hasnt met many as she has only had one set of injections so we havent taken her out. We feed her butchers puppy food (biscuit type) with a bit of wet meaty food in it aswell 4 times a day (like it says on the packet as she is around 6.2 kgs

Thanks for all the advice more is welcomed

Re: problems when trying to discipline my puppy

You shout her name and tell her off. Guess what she's not going to do when you take her out and shout her name to call her back to you.
