I have noticed that puppies do this a lot, looking up at the owners. They seem to be looking for acceptance about what they are doing. I wonder if just not making eye contact with him when he looks up might help it out. Sometimes just the eye contact is enough to reinforce the behavior and signal that he's doing the right thing.
This is what is happening with Taffy at 8 months old and she is training to be in the ring next month. She looks up at me often as if to say "Am I doing this right?" Is this going to be a problem? Or do they give some consideration to the fact that they are puppies?
