My new puppy keeps biting everyones ankles & when playing really bites down hard. I have a little girl so Im really worried. Any advice? I got some chew toys that help a little but not enough. thank you in advance
My pup did the same thing to me when he was younger. It's because they are herding dogs and it's also a sign of them wanting to play. And it might be a sign of them teething too! What I did was get little teething toys for puppies, at Petco, that you can put in the freezer and give to them to chew on (or ice cubes always work too). Just think of her like a little baby =). It will eventually wear off in a few months. Hang in there!
They're not called 'landsharks' for nothing. Redirect with her toys and chew things. Are you teaching the 'leave it' command? You can also try the loud yelping technique when she touches your pants or skin, and the general 'eh-eh' sound- try everything! The time will come when she's not biting everything in sight.
