Hi everyone, yesterday I bought my first GSD. He I'd almost 9 weeks we love him his temperament so far is excellent. Only problem we are having is his puppy biting but his little razor sharp teeth.
Welcome to the forum & Congrats on the new puppy!
I hope your puppy time is fun and that those razor sharp teeth don't do too much damage. The previous advise given, "to offer toys and chews to deter chewing on you", is good advice. I hope it works for you.
My rowdy puppy, Cassie, is 7 months old now. Thankfully, she has her big girl teeth and is almost done with teething (but not with chewing on me). She has been very rowdy and an extreme naughty nibbler. Those razor-sharp baby teeth can do some damage.
I've read where some people recommended tug-a-war with puppies. With, Cassie, I had to avoid tug-a-war for a few months. She had a natural tendency to want to play tug-a-war with clothing (pant legs, sleeves, edges of sweaters, etc.). I have several damaged articles of clothing.
I have a crate I'm using at the minute. He just crys the whole time he's in it at the minute so just waiting for that to pass.
There is a stuffed animal you can get that has a heart beat. Many people report it can be helpful to comfort a puppy in it's crate. You can find one at pet stores or online sources. I've seen them at Chewy.com or Amazon.
