Pup bites when my back is turned.....

Recommended Posts

zrmo440

My 5 month old Chocolate Lab will bite at my jeans or jump up for my jacket sleaves sometimes when I take him out. Its only when my back is towards him. He usually does it right away when we get out and it stops after a few minutes. I know his teeth are bothering him, he has a little gum bleeding and is constantly chewing on toys.

Is this behavior a reaction to being excited outside or some form of aggression I should be concerned about??? Thanks.

At 5 months old I certainly would not tolerate this type of behavior. You need to put an end to it. Actions like this usually evolve into even worse habits. He may be innocently rough housing, but as he becomes an adult (which he is now in his adolesent stage) you will not want him picking when, with who, and how he decides to become rowdy. A stern correction and putting him in a submissive posture will quickly solve it.

Good Luck!

LABS, i have this problem too but with just the jumping part and not when my back is turned tho. Its only with one of my labs and only when we are out at the woods walking. She starting to do it to other people too which is kind of embarassing. Ive tried sticking my knee up and saying down when she does it but it doesnt seem to have any affect on her even tho it pretty much knocks her down to her belly everytime. Do you have any more hints to stop this.

I'm not a big knee in the gut fan... I find it works only in a select few dogs... we just had this discussion a couple of weeks back. I'll find and post the the thread. I've had dynamite success with the dew claw pinch.

Good Luck!

Eric, check out this thread form a few months ago. This tactic has worked well for me and several others. BTW, thanks for the tip Ken!

Teaching down

edit: Looks like Labs4me beat me to it!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!
