That sounds like normal behavior for a 11 wk old pup. They use their mouths alot at that age so they have the nickname "landsharks". When Missy starts to put her teeth on anyone they need to yelp loudly and give her one of her toys to put in her mouth. I would also say NO bite and then give her her toy.

NOT aggression, simply NORMAL puppy play behavior.

How many miles are you able to run/walk the puppy each week?

What does your obedience class instructor recommend? Does the dog listen in class?

Have you spoken to the breeder for helpful hints/tips/recommendations?

(This is in the wrong section to get alot of responses so I'll try to get it moved...)
