Oh, he may look sweet and innocent, but you should see the teeth marks on my hands, punctures in my fingers, and scratches on my wrists. He's gotten the kids quite a few times too, but, luckily, I've been able to intervene before the pup draws blood. Me? I haven't been so lucky. His teeth are razor sharp!
I have watched probably a dozen videos on eHow on how to stop puppy biting. Exercise, chew toys, bitter spray, time outs in his crate, spray bottles, leaving the room, yelling "Ouch!" or yelping like another puppy - I've tried all of it. He's relentless.
It's the puppy stage. This stuff is to be expected, but he jumped up and got Noah on his chin this afternoon - so it does make me nervous. Other than the biting, he's a good dog. He's already doing really well with the house training, he sleeps quietly in his crate all night, he's starting to sit on command, and he's getting better at going for walks...
But those TEETH!!!
We probably should have named him "Gator" (instead of Rocket) like my husband suggested.
Definitely would have suited him.
Obedience school starts one week from today - can't wait!
In the meantime, if anyone has any tips on nixing the puppy biting, I would really appreciate it.
