Maybe he's just constipated? Give him a tablespoon of pumpkin. Keep an eye on that excessive peeing in case he's developed a UTI. If he has to go out frequently, excessive peeing in the house, blood in the urine, crying when peeing.

No blood, no crying... We don't have any pumpkin, it's not something frequent here in the UK to get a pumpkin, except fake ones for halloween

Really? No pumpkins?! You are so deprived!!! Pumpkin donuts, pumpkin pies, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup...that's sad! lol

Find something high in fiber. Do you have squash?

They probably have canned pumpkin, though. It'll be with other canned pie fillings. Just give a spoonful with his food.

(From what I know from a brief googling, a lot of stores won't carry pumpkin regularly, but can order it for you)

Also, I know the biting is frustrating, but just keep at the redirection. This is a normal herding puppy behavior. Gabe and my sheltie were both terrible nippers. It will eventually get better.

We don't have canned pumpkin here so I just chop up and boil pumpkin and then mash it (with nothing added). Perhaps you could try that?

If you do find canned pumpkin it must be the kind without the spices. It is in the pie section not the vegetable section if you have it.

Jax@ No pumpkins at all! And it did get better anyway, but thanks for the tips everyone! Really appreciated.
My brother recently moved into our house and him and his girlfriend love Zack! They take care of him even more than me, haha :P
But seriously, when my mum is away shopping etc they do take care of him, yay!
