Timeout for my Land Shark
My puppy is 7.5 weeks old, and here are the symptoms:
Me: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! don't bite, I've said NOOOOOOO for the millionth time!
Odin: BUT I LOVE TO BITE! *bite*
Me: Here's a chew toy
Odin: I prefer skin *bite*
Me: *Ignores dog and walks away*
Odin: I've got your ankle, and I'm biting extra hard. Whatcha gonna do about it now? *bite*
Me: Thinks of a good timeout place that isn't the crate.... *light bulb* The Back Yard!
Me: I refer to him as "Shark" when he bites me and take him out
Me: Observes that the dog cries when I take him to the yard,
Me: He doesn't leave the door and scratches it for a few minutes, and he looks incredibly bored.
It's the 5th time that I've taken him out within the last 40 minutes, and it looks like he's now hesitating to bite when I let him in. Let's see how my 6th attempt for him to cool it on the biting works.
The funny thing is that he doesn't bite me or anyone whenever I walk him or when I driving. After 10-15 minutes of walking he tires out, and I have to carry him home, I imagine it's because he's only 7 weeks.
What do you all think?
