The land shark has surfaced

The first few days were relatively quiet but today.... oh today...... the land shark has emerged from the water. He's biting feet... hands.... his bed. He has A TON of energy today. God help me!

It's only just begun- rev up his exercise now and get those thick pants ready to be bitten. Glad to see your pup now feels right at home

And this is why puppies are cute...Just when you want to throw them in the river because you're arm is bleeding and they've just chewed your new shoes they look at you with those big brown eyes and you forget you're mad at them.

wait untill it's cold and you come
in the house with cold hands and they
nip your hand or finger <
you're letting them lick your face
and they nip your nose <
you're walking by and they nip
the back of your ankle <
you're teaching them not to snatch
food. they're going to get you
once or 10 times before they learn <
you're sleeping and your hand is dangling
over the bed <

Your soul will be much happier in the morning when you can find your shoes, have cushions intact on your couch, no pee to clean up, no remotes chewed, or other household items destroyed

The first week of crate training SUCKS, but the reward of coming home to your home in the manner you left it is so worth it and much cheaper

Your soul will be crying a lot more should he get hold of an electrical cord or eats something horrible and gets sick or dies. Crate your puppy for his sake.

Oh, definitely crate that puppy! It's just as good for him as it is for you, he'll have the safety and privacy of his own place and really will be much happier- the crying is just to wrap you around his little paw. I'm telling you they just don't play fair

I boiled a 30cm long length of 1" diameter soft nylon cord ( best way to describe it is it is the stuff like horse training rope or yachting / boating rope ? ) in beef stock ,let it dry and it impregnated the rope with a beefy smell. Karma LOVES that rope chew.

CRATE THAT FURRY LITTLE CRITTER!!!!! you'll get that break when you need it. You wont have to worry about destructo puppy getting into everything while you cant supervise and protect. A crate is cheaper than replacing your couch!!!!
