Solution: It is every dog owner's responsibility to see that their pet is well mannered and obedient. Once again, puppies and adult dogs learn what to do through obedience training. A simple leash correction administered whenever the puppy behaves in an unacceptable manner eventually ends most problems. In this situation, commanding your dog DOWN and STAY will solve the problem. If the dog is too much of a problem, confine him in another area behind a see-through puppy gate or in a dog crate.
