Snapping and growling
Snoopy has become quite temperamental. He is 6 months old. He growls and sometimes snaps when he doesn't want you to do something. How do I correct this behavior? Is this a phase? He is very smart and potty trained in 2 weeks. He just started this within the past month. We have grandchildren and I do not want him to bite one of them. I potty trained him using a mini treat and praise when he went outside and did his business, then ignoring him when he had an accident. I have tried this for the growling and snapping but it hasn't helped. Should I put him in his crate when he does this for a specific time? If, so, how long? Examples of when he does this include: if you go to move him when he is lying down, when you go to trim his nails, when I start to comb him fur, when he is on your lap and you go to adjust your position or his, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
