I got a 14 months old indian spitz, who mated with a 3 year spitz 3 days ago and again a day after. He's a crybaby and cries for everything. There are two female dogs in my area and one lives just next door(a pug), since the mating he's been crying and howling whenever he sees the pug next door and right after his morning and evening walks.

How do i get him in control?

He is my first dog and i'm new to these things.

Well, for starters, you could have him neutered. Often there are free clinics that do this for no charge (or for a very small price).

Hi DeadEye!

As Dave said, neutering would definitely help. If you're looking to continue breeding him, this is going to be a tricky time. It's all about patience, training, and socialization. You'll need to train him not to react that way when other dogs are around and to do so properly does take some time. In the meantime, you can of course try blocking his view of the dogs by closing blinds or curtains during the times those dogs are regularly out.

Thanks for you suggestions but I don't wan't him neutered, and i do keep him indoors blocking his view but he keeps crying until i let him go to porch and cries even more when he sees the other dog. How do i exactly train him not cry, treats are not helping much. He does stop crying when i intimidate to beat him or show him a stick, but i'm not sure it'll be good or might make him more aggressive.

Redirect his attention,, so every time he starts, redirect. working on a leash might even help.

Definitely do not use force to intimidate or make him afraid - this is building a lifelong relationship of fear and distrust. You need to keep at it with treats and distraction. Use a firm voice to say "No" but do not shout. It takes time and patience to train, but once he is he will only need refreshers and this training will last his whole life.

Did you use any homeopathic medicine like CBD oil?
