WOW!!

Nice looking pup.

I'd say you are about to have some fun.

Axe is a beautiful dog and is probably worth the wait...but 3 years is a looooooong time.

Enjoy.

Thank you Everyone !

Ray G you are not kidding !
I have been wanting to get back into this since my last pup's passing but sometimes I may think to much. After years of harassment from my mentor & friends as well as some on here I saw what I deemed an opportunity and went for it. The little guy is very intelligent and has more puppy in him then I can ever remember having . Like past subjects I plan on following the pup's leed and let it come together in time. Within the first week I had him doing some impressive recalls 40-50 yrds out . Stop -Snap is head to look and come charging. No check cord yet but I am guessing pretty soon . Making him my bud !

Garrison - Thank's for the help with getting a picture posted ! Computers have never been one of my strong points :D

A little Axe update ~ A couple nights ago I was on the phone at dusk looking out the back when I saw a woodcock flutter to the ground & start feeding . Coooool !! I thought. Fast forward to last night -Weather has been bad as of late with snow,freezing rain ,pouring rain .After dinner we walked outside and the little guy is following doing puppy stuff :D

I no sooner start thinking about the night before and as I do this I hear wings off to my left between myself and the garage and another or possibly the same w/c from the night before flutters to the ground. How cool is that I thought . Here comes little guy - whats he going to do ? He stops by me spins toward me with his back to the w/c which is about 20 ft away at this point . He starts to take a dump :D My heart is racing as I would love for him to get a nose full of the bird. His little eyes are bugg'n and he's just a push'n :D

Now he's finished goes back to puppy stuff and I call him once he look's at me and I point to the w/c and he keeps eyes trained on me . Ugh puppies :D ! I then start making like I am using my nose and I see him start doing the same thing . Funny !! Still oblivious to the w/c which is feeding not 20 ft from us. I decide to head toward the w/c a couple steps and stop type routine. Ok it's working . Now little guy knows he smells something he may not have experienced before . But now he's heading the wrong direction.

Ut- spoke to soon now he's on a course right for the w/c . He gets within 5-10 ft of the bird and his heads comes up quick. The movement startles the w/c and he's gone . Axe had the - what the heck was that ? (Look going on :D ) You forget how much fun having a pup can be at times like that. I did the math Axe was 83 days old & just shy of twelve weeks I guess. I do have birds on hand but for now were doing puppy stuff . Soon ~ soon

Average guy Thank you for the kind words on Axe. He is a fine specimen :D i'm not saying this because he's mine either :D At times watching him run he's starting to loose the puppy gait and watching him run at times is pretty cool . The most fun is as different things come on inside his little head. As far as posting video I think it's out of my wheel house :D I will look at it . Youtube sounds "big time" to ole man Chris :D

A little update on Axe. He is doing nicely . Crate train went with out a hitch and he lets me know when he has to go out . I have been working on recall pretty much since he arrived here. Nothing to heavy and he's doing well with that also . You folks that train pup's regularly how heavy would you get with un wanted puppy behavior ? I notice this more at the end of the day and it only started in the last week.

We head out after supper and he jumps at the back of my legs as if he's trying to be alfa I guess . Biting at my upper rear legs in a jumping motion . I have been turning to avoid this type behavior and he follows my turn I stop and give him a firm "No" but he continues . I haven't gotten overly heavy because I don't want to put fear into him. I feel there will be a time for fear but not while he's this young. It's puppy nonsense I realize but also realize it shouldn't go un-checked .

Any input would be appreciated .

When he does this behavior I guess one might say he is acting like a "little Punk" :D

Seems your "No" is not working. Without consequences that would be normal. Like a kid who has never been spanked. I find something that does work.

A pup jumping on you and biting is normal solicitation of play behavior and not necessarily an indication of trying to be Alpha at this stage of its development.

I have a riding crop with a wide plastic flapper tip on the end. It is effective without hurting the dog. I use it to give No meaning with consequences. With balance I am not instilling fear in my puppies but rather I am teaching them that No means No. I have never raised a dog which feared me, but they have all understood that No means stop what you doing now.

You can also use some redirection of the pups energy to a toy productively at times especially at the current age of your pup.

Down the road I make productive use of a well trained Down command as well. It is an excellent tool for establishing control of a dog in moments when their excitement level is starting to boil over. Your pup is too young for that at the moment in my view but is not too young to be teaching the command using PR methods. You can see me working with my pup on that command and others in video links I posted in my thread.

Lots of positive, moments of negative when warranted is how I teach puppies.

Max:
A puppy coming up behind you and biting your legs is an attempt at dominating you. In a normal pack situation the mother dog will not tolerate that behavior and will stop it immediately. If my puppies jump on me I push them down with my knee or foot. Once or twice and they stop doing it. The issue if they sneak up behind you is catching them at it. But any biting can not be tolerated. It will not automatically get better especially with a pup that sneaks up behind you. There is a huge difference in a puppy that is afraid of you and one that respects you. There are other signs you need to be aware of such as putting his feet on yours, rushing in or out ahead of you and leaning on you. This is easy in a young puppy but gets more difficult as the pup gets older.
My dogs never even consider jumping on me. My much bigger problem is keeping them from jumping on people who come to visit and encourage them to jump. I wish they wouldn't do that.
Did you have a Northwaters puppy awhile back. Enjoy......Cj

Thank You Average Guy,CJ & Mike (Irishwhistler) for adding. It's been 13 yrs since I had a puppy onboard and I could not remember how much is to much discipline with-out creating a negative. I have been on the correct course I feel after reading what you folks have added. The little pup is really coming along nicely but like any pup has his moments.

Cj to answer your question on previous pups my last two shorthairs were out of Hidden Hollow Lineage & this little guy is from Bruce Shaffer & I am very pleased with him. It's my belief that this little guy is going to start talking pretty soon :D A highly intelligent creature for sure.

Thanks. I guess I had you confused with somebody else on here.
Dogs are pretty much genetically wired to deal with discipline in order for pack survival. It needs to be quick, understood and over. That is how pack life works. Don't pick at him. Smart dogs learn both good and bad at the same rate. Give him more chances to learn good. Enjoy.....Cj

I wouldn't hesitate to put a little bit of fear into a pup that put his teeth on my skin. I think dogs need to know that disrespect results in a bad consequence, and if that means they have some fear of reprisal, so be it. Dogs shouldn't be fearful of its owners very presence, or of doing regular dog stuff, but dog teeth on people skin crosses the line.

I'd scruff that little sucker and tell him in no uncertain terms that behavior is unacceptable. His mother would give him teeth, so a scruffing isn't all that bad by comparison.

Same with jumping up on you. Scruff, set him down and away. I used to go with the knee to dog chest but after having seen a dog get flipped ( kind of a freak accident) resulting in a broken tail, I don't do that any more. If other people don't correct for my dog jumping on them, I do it. I claim visitors as mine, they do not belong to the dogs even if the visitors don't care. Dogs can't figure out that jumping on a strong young person is any different than jumping on old frail grandma, so they don't get to jump on anyone.

A once (maybe twice if the dog is persistent) and done harsher correction where the dog knows you mean business works better than many little nagging corrections that he's allowed to ignore.

Max, I like to suggest you redirect your pup when he gets unruly. Use a clicker and "charge" him. That means, get tiny chunks of chicken dogs, then one click followed by one treat in rapid succession. You will see that he assigns the click to getting a treat. Now, use treats and lure him into jumping on you with the treats by swinging them low and then up to your chest BUT he doesn't get any.
You will see him get frustrated and either whine, jump up more, drop his front end, stand and stare or even sit. Then, when he stands still or sits, click and treat!
You'll soon find you can't get him to jump up for love nor money!
As for the nipping, I deal with that diversely.

Thank You for the input .I got him to stop pretty much right away after confirmation from Mike( Dog whistler ) for one as well as reccommendation of others. As it turns out what I had been doing was correct but I wanted to know how much is not to much. Since things opened up a little I have been seeing more folks as of late and working them as subjects and I feel he will catch that as well.

Thank's Featherfinder ! input appreciated !

Mike he sure is growing ! He has such a personality. Crack's me up all the time. Bruce had done a write up on his sire & dam and I remeber him saying that Axe's dad had a nickname of "punk" - I think Axe is a chip off the old block !
Lot of fun to be around ! Likes to push the envelope - Bold would be an understatement !

Average Guy & Mike thank's for the kind words on Axe !
Mike to answer your question we have been play'n in the woods and Axe is hav'n fun ! We have had some real nice points on the local woodcock but mostly prior to the season . That said it's all about having fun ! Past dogs I have pressured and pushed along but with Axe I have been taking a different approach. That being by letting a lot of the inner self come out
puppyhood.

I will say this about Axe he is a character ! I laugh with joy when the puppy side comes out and get such enjoyment at watching when the "all business" side shows up . Kind of like watching Superman the movie when Superman starts to find his inner strengths and is like wooo where did that come from ? Pure pleasure to see ! I am in no rush with this pup and plan on working with him to the best of my ability. Because Axe is bigger in size he could pass for an adult if you saw him work a woodcock . He zip's in there all low to the ground and deliberate and comes to point !

Puppy side - he might be throwing a toy into the air and monkey "bleep"'n around when a bird flying catch's his eye or woodies flush off our pond and everything stops with play as he is all in on what just took place. Following with his eyes ,jump'n around to watch.
