walking problems more nipping

About a week ago I adopted "Drama" from an anti cruelty society, he's almost 7 months. He was found as a stray and was very frightened and standoffish when he first arrived at the shelter but he's a total sweetheart so they named him Drama. Anyways, the first couple days at home were great! He walked super well, was totally well behaved at home, no problems not even bathroom accidents! Now all of a sudden he's changing his attitude. I'm trying to work on his leash pulling which he was responding to but a couple days ago he started getting more stubborn than usual. Today outta Nowhere hes been getting Really stubborn on the leash will only walk three houses and then just wont move. We'll turn around and walk the opposite direction and SAME thing! We've been all over the neighborhood before..

On top of that now biting/nipping alot when we play. I'vetried yelping but it works very momentarily. I've been trying different things but nothing is clicking. I can tell He understands but Doesn't seem to care.

Hello firstpittie and welcome to the forum. First, way to go on the rescue of your puppy.

The behavior you are describing is nothing unusual. It may be that he is a little more settled in and is trying to establish what he wants and does not want to do. What you need to establish is that you are in charge. Don't be discouraged with walking him. When you take him for a walk bring along a favorite toy and some little training treats. When he stops walking or sits down show him the toy or let him smell the treat and coax him to "come" and follow you. I promise after a few repetitions the problem will be how to stop him from pulling ahead of you on the walk.

The nipping can not be tolerated. Continue with your yelp and make it loud to startle him. Also, when he nips, give him a firm "NO!" and turn away from him and ignore him. Stop all play and if he persists, keep on turning away from him. Once he stops, call him over and continue the play. Believe me he wants to please you and do what you want. He just needs to understand what it is you want.

Great looking pup, thanks for the pictures. Best of luck and many happy years together.

Joe

Thanks! He's mixed with something, any idea what??

I expected all this but it just seemed weird that he was fine for a week and then suddenly just changed his behavior. He's getting better at walking rather quickly. But he seems to realize now that if He sits down and refuses to move he'll get a treat. And if He doesn't get it by the next driveway He becomes even harder to move. Am i supposed to give him his treat soon as he starts moving? This while quick little tug thing Does Not work. And i doubt it will for a few more weeks as with anything. Could i be doing something wrong?
Im definitely making progress on the nipping. He's started going for the ears but wherever he nips ya and you say something he starts licking so he's doing well in that aspect.
