I'm so glad there are threads like these. Helps me realize that I'm not the only one and that there is hope. Today my pup is 9 weeks old. Picked him up last Saturday. The biting has left my hands with small minor bruises and scars and scratches. He loves attacking my feet, toes, and ankles when my socks come off. He's grabbing everything he can. It's a nightmare to take him outside because literally every 10 seconds (and I'm not exaggerating) he's grabbing pebbles, twigs, mulch, grass, trash, etc. I'm constantly prying his mouth open to get things out. He tries to bite and chew on concrete, asphalt, flagstones, light poles, etc. I'm watching him like a hawk. It's tiring. After a week, it's gotten slightly better. My previous GSD wasn't this bad at all. One thing, I'm finding is many times (not all the time) when he bites me he wants something like he wants to go out or he's really hungry. I tried an old 12 year old bottle of bitter apple spray that worked wonders on the previous GSD. This one...it doesn't work. Maybe because the apple spray is too old and lost its efficacy. Or maybe the pup likes the taste as some dogs do. I tried a water bottle spray that also worked on the other dog. Not this one...he likes the face washes. Fun times.
