Question Grim's teeth

This boy is going to be the death of me yet! His adult canines came in...and his baby canines failed to come out. So he's got a double set! I've tried giving him a knuckle bone, and last night resorted to try to get him to play some tug. He wouldn't play tug with me, though. He actually pushed the rope away with his front teeth. Any other suggestions before I have to find a vet to take him to (we just moved recently) to have them removed?? Only Grim would require juvenile dental care... LOL!

How long have they been like this? I usually just give it time and they will fall off on their own. If there is pain, long term discomfort - have a vet take a look.

Umm.. maybe 2 weeks? The adult canines look like they're about 90% in. Grim was born on 7/9... so he's 5.5 months I think.

We had double teeth for a while and we gave Nita the knuckly bones to chew on. It helped and her baby teeth fell out within the week

We see double teeth all the time. I'm the "teeth checker" at the Schutzhund club as my husband doesn't want any pup playing with the tug until the teeth are in (or at least all the baby teeth are out). I've seen those baby teeth hang on for weeks until suddenly we realize they're gone.
Don't pay for a vet visit quite yet, unless Grim seems uncomfortable in some way.

OK. How long should I give it? My wife said one of my past shepherds did this, but I honestly don't remember it.

My vet wasn't worried about the double teeth.
Give him a marrow bone or something.
Merry Christmas!

I'd give it a couple more weeks. Also, don't play tug since yanking one out behind an adult tooth may cause some damage, it's better if they work their way out naturally. I give mine a big (non-bleached, natural) rawhide or a bully stick to work on it. Or an actual raw beef bone, give it in his crate so you can keep the mess to a minimum.

OK. He's got a new antler and a new knuckle bone. I'll let him work on those. I keep the knuckle bone with him all the time, hoping it will loosen them up!

Merry Christmas, Sunflowers!
