10 weeks old female GS - playing or not ?
 
Hi all,
When my 10 weeks old puppy, is in her playing tornado mood, she bites everything possible... When I correct her getting close to her and saying " No" ! She jumps to my face being all excited trying to bit it ! I push her back right away.
Is she reacting to be playful ? Or she's being aggressive towards me ? If so , what should I do ?
Thank you

It's play only. A 10 week old puppy doesn't even really understand how to show aggression. Puppies will bite everything, including the hand that feeds them and the hand that tries to correct them.

Search this site for bite inhibition. Believe me we've all been there before. I wondered if there wasn't something wrong with my dog because she was biting me so often.

German Shepherd pups are wild things:)

She's playing & when you nudge her back and point- you just made the game even more fun- game on!

The bite inhibition sticky is a good read. She's does need to learn to have a soft mouth.

Feisty baby is just playing. The most obnoxious puppies grow up to be the best dogs. Enjoy the ride.
