What do you want it to do ? What's in it for the pup What do you use to entice it ?

The bottom line is if you keep facilitating it hunting wise , the pup will turn the corner itself while still feeling less resistance towards females , it's a work in progress , keep up the work and trust in the mutt

One on one. Just you and that dog no second lurcher. No missus. An if possible no nets. But that won't really matter as long as dog gets to bond an release his drive if that makes sense ha

Puppy socialisation classes that allow pups to run riot are the worst thing in the world. Most owners haven't a clue about how to read a dog's body language.

Another thing: a pup of 12 weeks that has never been exposed to other dogs, different places is in no way ready for hordes of rampant pups that don't behave in the same way as a sight hound or lurcher which is usually far more sensitive than your average Lab or terrier, for example. At 12 weeks, without correct upbringing so far, the pup is entering the first fear period in its life, where new things are viewed with deep caution and fear rather than enthusiasm.

Whatever you do, stay away from puppy classes. Take things very slowly, let the pup dictate how you proceed. Don't drag the pup anywhere. Carry it if it seems scared. Don't let other dogs come up to it when it is on the ground and frightened. Let it watch other dogs from a distance, on your lap. You are its surrogate parent now: behave as such. The pup should come to see you as a protector, not someone who takes it to frightening places and lets it fend for itself. One the pup learns to trust that you will protect it you should see a slow improvement. If the pup has never been taken out and about this could take months. Be patient. 

 

If he bites you direct his mouth to a toy or furry thing he can chew on. Don't ever tell him off or hit him. He is not biting you to be nasty, but merely being a puppy. Encourage him to chew on a toy you hold in your hand: say no if he bites your hand. Say good dog if he bites the toy. All pups need to bite things, he just needs to learn what he's allowed to bite and not. If you don't have other dogs to teach him manners you must do so yourself, in a way he understands. A little growl works well, but removing your hand and putting a soft, chewy toy in its place should do the trick.

 

 

 

Got my boy hunter when he was 12 weeks old, 15 weeks now (a woman actually bought him when he was 8weeks old then decided she didn't have time for him)

He's a greyhound saluki x greyhound whippet collie.

He settled in fine no problems at all he's biting quite abit but I'm pretty sure he's just playing it's not aggressive.

I took him to his first puppy training class tonight as he needs to socialise more. He's very scared and timid around other people/dogs. This ended up with him being chased by about 15 other puppies running for his life.

Tonight really showed me just how worried he really is about pretty much everything outside of our house.

Other than bonding/socialising a shit ton, is there anything I should/shouldn't be doing with him to bring up his confidence?

Thanks

 

Poor wee thing... :yes:  

 

Firstly,..and most importantly,..forget all about Saluki this or that,..for, all things being equal,..his cross-bred lineage frequently means nowt....

 

He is, simply a frightened and confused young animal....your job,..if you decide to take it,..is to reassure him that if you are around, nothing can harm him.

 

You have to be the man,..walk tall,..stand in front of anything or anyone that might spook him....protect him,...give him time....

 

All dogs are different,...I've owned herding breeds that have been raised on remote farms and who are virtually wild animals,..never seen a car or heard an aeroplane,..real 100% wildlings...some you cannot win over, the fear is just too deep in them,.but.most can be brought into the 21st century...in time..

 

For now, I would take the dog everywhere with you, do not make him physically confront everything in the world,...always support him and (whilst observing his fears)  be supportive, but don't go overboard,.. try not to acknowledge them....

 

If he has a fair amount of chase in him (prey drive)..you can use that to your benefit,..likewise, if he loves his scran,...

Whatever you do,..be kind, be consistent, talk soft and gentle and keep both him and yourself, well away from hard men, know it all, divis... :censored: 

 

A good working dog is an investment for the future,..it is worth spending time on....

 

 All the best ... :victory:  

 

 

Excellent. :thumbs: :thumbs:

That is so true. If you let him go in front and get scared and hammered or traumatised in any way it will all go wrong. I know
