HIi have a cavachon, he is 5 months old.My problem is he keeps jumping up at our clothes and pulling them not letting go. Plus how do we stop him from biting? And when out in the garden I cant get him in when I call him. We have tried everything but nothing works. But he is a great little chap.

I was at Pet Land and they use rags so they can stop biting at clothes. Be firm and try clicker training or just say no.

To stop your Cavachon from biting cross your arms, when you're trying to get him inside make it fun (run away from it so he'll chase you) and to stop him from biting your clothes, do you mean he bites it when you're wearing them or something else because if you're wearing them again cross you arms and ignore him (turn away from him when he jumps)

It's hard to tell without knowing the situation, but some dogs will tend to nip and bite as part of play or making a correction of our behavior, which both are no good. Be consistent with corrections, never laugh or tease the dog or prompt it to do it again. As the person before me said, stand up straight, cross your arms or put them on your hips and give him a firm "NO!" If he keeps doing the bad behavior, find a good trainer to help you break his bad habits. As far as not coming inside when called, the Spaniel in the breed has a great hunting instinct, so that would prove a challenge. One way to do the "come" command, break a treat into pieces (2 or 3 is fine) and say very cheerfully/excited "COME!" and when he does, give him the handful of treats, this is called a "Jackpot!" Overall, definitely get help from a trainer because he's almost old enough to start. Have fun!
