I am in need of good advice. I read the sticky on puppy biting and I've tried everything, but nothing is helping. Me and My Wife have a 8 week old German Shepherd puppy that will bite everything. I have tried everything in the world to get him to stop biting humans. I know that biting is a good trait for a German Shepherd, but when he is around he bites us way to hard. He will snap at your nose, ears, ankles, hands, fingers, toes, and everything in between.
We can't love on him because he always try's to bite our face, lips, nose, etc. You can't pet him because then he turns around and then tries to bite your hand. He doesn't bite soft at all.
I have tired whelping loudly and ignoring him. He just goes right back to my feet or something else and starts biting again. Just like he doesn't care. We've tried holding his mouth down until he whines, but not forcibly. I've tried putting my finger under his tongue and again that doesn't work either.
We've tried water bottles, spanking, biting him back, and I just don't know what else to do.
Does anyone have any good ideas?<<<<
