Pomskies are great dogs by nature, but when they whine, it’s hard to know what to do. That’s where we come in. Training your Pomsky to stop barking and whining is easier than you think as long as you have patience and are willing to show lots of love and affection when getting there. In this article, we are going to tell you the top 5 things you can do to get your Pomsky to quiet down and whine less often.
Before we get started, it is always wise to know that if your Pomsky has just started to whine and it is very uncommon for them there may be a medical concern and you should always check with your vet to make sure they are okay. For starters you will want to search around the house and check the dogs surroundings. If you notice something unusual such as a package that your dog could have gotten, it is likely may may have eaten something that could be harmful to their body. However, If you've recently bought your Pomsky within the last month it is very common for them to whine, so don't be alarmed. The time period that your Pomsky starts to whine will be between four to six months, and that is when you will need to implement these actions. Older dogs may be harder to train.
Give your dog plenty of exercises
Giving your Pomsky enough exercise is a miracle worker as far as whining. If you give it enough exercise throughout the day, your Pomsky will feel loved and accomplished and will be a lot calmer. Professional trainers have stated that giving your dog exercise that includes time with their owner will increase their satisfaction.
Keep your Pomsky on a schedule
Set up a plan for your Pomsky. This will help them to know precisely when and how they will receive their food and exercise. If you are strict with their diet and routine, they won’t feel the need to whine in order to show you they are hungry or need training. Most puppies will wine when they feel like they aren’t getting enough of something or when they want more attention. If you start giving them more attention one day, but slow it down throughout the rest of the week, your Pomsky will feel like you’ve forgotten about them and try to regain the care they had before by whining.
Give your Pomsky a Massage
Just like humans, dogs sometimes feel stressed or anxious, and having a relaxing, meaningful massage is a great way to relieve some of those stress hormones. To get them to calm down, try rubbing the parts of their back that seem tense or stiff. On this topic it is also important that you never reward their whining behavior. If you begin to massage them while they are whining they will continue to whine in order to receive what they want. Instead ignore the whining and once they stop immediately reward them for stopping by giving them a massage or treat.
Giving your pomsky a healthy nutritious diet will help tremendously when you are trying to train and calm down your dog. If your Pomsky continues to whine or bark throughout the day, there might be something in its food that is making it hyper or overactive. Make sure to go to a vet if you have any concerns with allergies or to see of any issues your dog may have. If your dog does not receive the right amount of protein that can also make it hyperactive. Use foods that have ingredients like fish, white rice, and lots of meats.
Some dogs require medicine to help with their digestion or other issues going on inside their body. Talk to a vet and see if there are any prescriptions that you can give your dog to help them calm down. If the medicine you are using is causing them to sleep more throughout the day or if they seem less active than before you should stop taking that medication immediately and consult with your doctor.
