4.5 month old drawing blood
So my pup is still biting...yes I've read everything on here and everything else I can find on the subject! But I'm not sure what is normal and what is not. She bites very hard at times(blood, bruises) and she does this several times through the day. I've tried different methods, one being a timeout in her crate so she can calm down. This method seems to work the best. But she has figured out that if she lays on her back she can fight us off. So she is snapping and refuses to go into the crate without a very painful struggle. If you walk away, she jumps up and will bite our legs very hard. Her hair on her back stands up and she will sometimes curl her lips. Is this fear? Aggression? A future problem? I tend to think its fear so I will just speak softly to her(no yelling) and try to rub her belly but this only works for a few seconds. She is so smart and I'm in over my head with this biting! My dad avoids her because she has drawn blood and I actually believe she scares him. Which can't help the situation. There is no training in this area as I live in the country. So this site and google are my trainers. I would love input!! Thanks!
