missDevichi My dog is an outdoor dog, but when I first got him he would nip at my feet when I try to teach him to not bite the leash when walking or playing. At first when I see him lowering his head and tilting it to the side, I was yell "HEY" (Which is our word for stop) and he would turn his head like nothing happened.

I was tired of having him going for my legs so every time he would try to bite me, when I felt teeth I would yelp. And he would back away, stare at me, and pause. He no longer tries to bite my legs.

Glad to see I'm not the only one lol

I sure hope he outgrows it. It just gets a little annoying. I'm working on training him now.

Sp00ks Forget a crate made of fabric with a zipper.

LoveEcho Welcome to the "landshark" breed. You've only had him for a week, so be prepared: it will get worse before it gets better. They are babies and explore with their mouths. When you can't 100% monitor him, crate him. Provide lots of mental stimulation and exercise. This is a breed that is known for being extremely mouthy, so direct all that energy into doing something you want- now is a good time to start FUN obedience training- make it a game using his favorite chew toys. Redirect to appropriate toys- it's a phase, and a long one, but with patience and consistency he'll outgrow it

No. But he does have little plastic bones, not Nylabones.
