How to reprimand a nipping/pooping Pug!!
My 12 week old pug Timmy is very much out of hand. He is constantly nipping, pooping and peeing in the house, eating everything he can find outside, and eating his poop. The problem seems to be, is that when we reprimand him, he jumps around nipping the air, enjoying our yelling. I think he enjoys being naughty! This i could understand if he was not getting enough attention. Yes, I do work all day, but he has over an hour with me in the morning, 45 minutes at lunch, then my undivied attention at night. He is FAR from neglected. I really need some tips on how to reprimand him. Right now I am using firm "no's" that seem to have no effect. I was possibly considering using a water spray bottle on him when he nips at my face and starts to go to the bathroom in the house (which he KNOWS is wrong, but does anyways!)
PLEASE HELP ME!!! I'm at my wit's end. I LOVE this little guy, but he is driving me CRAZY!!
