Schutzhund questions for my pup?
I am getting ready to put my pup Rima into schutzhund. From what i hear, we're supposed to make our puppies feel like the best thing on earth. Minimal correction and such. Right now she's a little over six weeks. She is constantly active chasing things and chewing.
But the thing i am wondering about is biting. All she wants to do is bite me. She prefers biting me over any toys. She tries to chew me up, i don't think it's really teething. She has alot of toys. Ropes, stuffed animals, squeaky toys, kongs, etc. What should i do?
Also, she gets under the couch and won't come out. We try everything, but she only comes out when she wants to tear everything up again.
Is this good for a dog going into schutzhund? Or am i supposed to correct her more? I've never had a pup this crazy.
Honestly, the only thing she likes better then chewing my arm off is chasing leaves. Is that the 'drive' i keep hearing about?
Also, i've researched nobody is supposed to ever correct my dog except me? Or command her to sit, give treats, etc?
I have a family member who refuses to listen, and do as they please with my pup. I have a right to ask them to leave or stop, right? She also thinks schutzhund is some 'attack training.' I told her what it is. But all she keeps talking about is Rima being put down because of it. What am i supposed to do in these situations?
Any help would be great! I would be new to schutzhund, but i am determined to do it.
We will start her obedience and socialization when she hits eight-nine weeks.
Thank you. (:
