Dog Training and the tired dog? Hungry Dog? Nipping, Biting

I find, including with our own very young Border Terrier Trev, when your pup or even older dog is either getting tired or hungry he or she is more likely to engage in ‘naughty’ behaviour (sounds familiar human parents?!) But this behaviour can even be really hyper active looking in nature - like nipping and jumping to gain your attention. My advice is to ensure your dog has it’s regular feed schedule and somewhere to calm down and rest quietly and is being encouraged by all to do so. Has your dog just had enough for now, are they knackered?
