Default Puppy ripping my trousers!!!!

We're still getting Finnicks mouthing under control, he's getting better (slowly), but he keeps accidentally catching my trousers in his teeth....sometimes when he's biting and sometimes just when his mouth is open and it catches my trousers. He's already ripped some of my PJ bottoms and just now he has ripped my best denim jeans!!!

Does this happen to anyone else? I'm thinking it's because their puppy teeth are just so needle like! I've never had this problem before...i'm going to have to go clothes shopping soon!

When I have a pup in the house, I tight roll my pants like we did in the 80s. A swishy pantleg is too much temptation for some driven pups.

That is just awesome! (Fellow 80's kid who used to peg my pants!)

Paisley got my old uggs one too many times (luckily they were really old and I wasn't too heartbroken). She was also a master at grabbing shoe laces. I also made a point of not wearing anything remotely nice in her presence for awhile!

Accidentally? "Sure", they are smarter than that.
You have a little land shark that knows what he is doing and has you very well figured out.
Hang in there. We are now done with this stage and DDog is 5 months old yoohoo!!!! (brag, brag, *sigh with relief)

Yes our pup especially loves my husband's clothes! I keep telling the hubs to not wear his favorite shirts/pants while playing with the dog, but he hasn't taken my advice yet so I guess we'll have to replace his wardrobe when this stage is over! Hmmmm...maybe I WILL let the dog put holes in my clothes so I can get new clothes too!

Men right? All the advice in the world and they think they know better. I'm waiting to see if my hubby still puts in tomato plants within Gunther's reach after seeing his reaction to all my flower pots. I like the clothing idea lol. But my husband reads my posts on here from work (I love you honey) so I can't plot fun things like that. Besides he needs more new clothes than I do

Hehe It is a rather good excuse for clothes shopping too :P

No, he honestly catches it by accident sometimes, for example the other night I was just about to give him a treat, but I accidentlly dropped it...he reached down to gobble it up but brushed against my trousers and caught them!

I might hold off on the clothes shopping until he stops ripping things! I would roll my trousers up, but it's rather cold here atm :S Brrr

Im glad to see this is a common problem. So it usually ends when they hit the toddler stage per-say? My sable last night during a potty break jumped on me not only pulling my pjs nearly to my ankles but ripping them also! Thank goodness I live on a few hundred acres no neighbors to see it happen. She's always catching the cuffs of my pants going for a ride when I accidentally drag her. They love chasing ankles I've learned.
