Well, today he decided once again he won't let us sleep in. I don't mind the howling (it's rather soft and lower, I just cannot stand whining!) but it's noise polution, disrespectful to the neighbors not to keep it under control, and we can get fined for it...
I've tried for most of his bad habits (like biting...little fangs are needles!) with sound (clapping, pennies in a jar) and touch (surprise tap on the shoulder, or nose) but he thinks it's a game
So I've resorted to a spray bottle.
Does anyone have tips? It's when he is alone, but we refuse to let him in our room because it's ANOTHER flight of stairs, plus all carpet downstairs. The only way we have on hand, that is humane, is water. xD He LOVES water, but... not when it is sprayed in his face without him expecting it. So far he's learned that when I say "quiet." I mean "no more whining." And that was with only 2 sprays.
I'd like to break him of that before he is older... I mean he does 300% great in the car, no whining, panting, peeing, crying, howling... In the house and outside the house is another thing! :/
