Since you are dealing with a 13 week old puppy, I would recommend getting your mindset away from giving him corrections and start thinking about showing him leadership through calm, consistent and firm handling and controlling his environment. Since you have kids, I’ll put it to you this way... did you give your kids physical corrections when they were toddlers for things that you hadn’t taught them yet? I hope not. Puppies need to be shown what’s expected, and with the type of puppy you have giving him punishment for his lack of understanding of human rules isn’t fair. Some puppies cower and become withdrawn with this type of treatment, but others retaliate.
