I'm going to go against the grain here - while I totally agree that puppy biting is completely normal, I'd expect the worst of it to be over by 4 months old. It does sound like what your husband is doing is exacerbating the problem. Good luck, I hope things get better soon!

Not a very helpful comment to make to a potential client so we will not be using her. Shadow has obviously been listening and taking notes as he's been pretty nice this week-end with long walks, lots of interaction and we've resorted to the crate a little more - him, not us although we did consider crawling in!!!

Glad it seems to be a bit better and can't wait to hear the updates with the new trainer.
