I shouted at my puppy and now I feel terrible and guilty!

    My wee lassie was nipping my really expensive trainers and I raised my voice and said “no” and picked up my trainers and left the room.

    She hasn’t been distant with me and after ten minutes or so I gave her a cuddle and told her that I was sorry to shout at her and gave her a few treats. I just feel so bad for raising my voice at her.

    Does it make me a bad dog owner? Does it make me a bad person? Or, am I just overthinking this and every now and then all dog owners raise their voices at their puppies and dogs?

    Please put my mind at ease.

    It happens... quite often with some pups. Don't worry, she'll be fine. What you need to do now is put your really expensive trainers out of reach until she's a bit older!

    I have shouted at my pup on a few occasions and have felt bad too but we have soon made up with a cuddle. You are not a bad person - puppies can test the patience of a saint.
