OMG, when will it stooooop!

It's like zombies, but instead of brains, biting/chewing! Two weeks now with no slow down (she'll be 12 weeks on Monday), does it end/taper off? Ever??? Never had a puppy before so I have no idea....

IMO the biting is the last of the worries with a puppy. for me anyways, it's the accidents before 100% potty trained that make me want to put my head through a wall and second guess ever getting a puppy.

Mine was the same way. I had to toss so many clothes that got holes in them. She started tapering off when teething and stopped once all her adult teeth were in. I don't remember how old she was but I think between 4 and 5 months or so.

it tapers off about 6 months, then they hit the teenage phase.

ha, coincidentally, I just saw the other thread on pretty much the same topic! I try to wear her out, and I think I'm pretty successful in that regard: chasing balls, frisbees, branches, walks, etc. I try to redirect, but sometimes it just gets to you... On the plus side, she's been really good at potty training... uggh!

What kind of things do you have for her to chew on?
Bully sticks, frozen carrots, raw knuckles or ribs - all good to ease the pain of teething

I have a lot of kong rubber items, thing you can freeze, various large branches when we play outside, tennis balls, frisbees, and various nyla bone treats. Should I be giving her those somewhat large real bones from the pet store? That's what I've been meaning to research. For example, my wife thinks she's too young for those rawhide "bones"... I'm just not really sure yet what to give a 12 week old in that regard...
