Looking for advice on getting puppy used to mouth touching
My almost 11 week puppy growls and tries to pull away from me when I mess with her mouth. it is almost snarling. Teeth showing. Thankfully she does not try and bite yet, but I could see it happening if this isn't dealt with now.
I can rub the sides, but she will not allow over the nose contact or under the jaw. she simply does not want any part of it. Since I don't want a chance someone could get bitten by her as she grows bigger, does anyone have any non threatening, non painful ways of dealing with this? I'm not willing to do anything that could hurt her or make her distrust me This is really the only potentially serious behavior Tallie has
I HAVE wondered if it could be caused by tooth pain from teething, and might possibly be nothing to be too concerned about
Thanks in advance for any advice
