Need opinion on a dog name

March 15th, 2007, 08:22 PM
I bought a mini Daushund puppy and my son wants to call him Mako. It seems to fit because he likes to bite. What do you think? Also any suggestions on training him not to bite so hard and to get through puppy stage?

What I did was work with my puppy on the difference between mouthing softly and biting. There is NO tolerance for biting, she gets a time out for that (time out is about 30 secs away from all things fun by herself). And I always have lots of other options for things that are ok to chew on. Puppy like to bite and chew. Just like human babies always have things in their mouth. Its a way to explore the exciting new world they are part of.

Woops, forgot to comment on the name. I think the name is great. Just try saying it hundreds of times a day, will you get sick of it?

Congrats on the pup:lovestruck: ! If you look in the training section you will find lots of info about puppy training. I am not sure I would have survived without it!

Have you brought him to the vet yet? He probably needs parvo treatment asap (as per your other thread).
