When he bites you, let out a very loud yelp like a pup don't be shy! He will know he has hurt you and back off. If you do this regularly, he will learn that humans hurt when bit and will mouth instead of biting.
We got our pup on Saturday and have implemented this with amazing results. Good luck!
I've tried that it hasn't worked so far. He is a determined one!
I can't seem to figure out pics on here.
I'm also trying that, but it seems to be working very slowly. I may try the "be a tree" method when he is being really bad, but it's hard to be a tree when someone is chomping into your toes!!
Here is what I am up against:
This stage will pass....This stage will pass...This stage will pass.
He is very pug like in most ways he's even sweet as a bugs ear when he wants to be. His breeder told me she does sell to quit a few people who also have pugs and says they mix well.
Rescue?? No way, he's a keeper for sure.
Tried a firm no and and give her a toy and it doesn't work cuz she gets excited and bites my fingers and hands again. Also gave a big yelp and it doesn't work either. The only person she doesnt bite is my hubby and she only listens to him too.
How many pennies in a can do I put in there is enough? I'm going to try this method next.
Is there any other methods besides the pennies in a can or the spray that I haven't mentioned?
How much longer before this stage will pass? I don't remember having a puppy that bites this much!
All I can say is that Winston was a terror when he was little. Not so much with the biting (the loud yelp worked with him) but with jumping and biting pants legs. It drove us nuts. But he did grow out of it.
If a puppy doesn't respond to the yelp, or 'be a tree', it may be that it's over stimulated. It can be worth sitting down and thinking about whether playing methods could be changed and whether the puppy needs more rest and calm time. Puppies are very sensitive to stress. Sometimes it can be caused by things that we don't perceive as stressful.
Proud mama to puggies Winston and Ozzie, Slatan the Cat and Zino the horse.
With my pup i totally think it's a over stimulated issue because nothing helps except get him out of "crazy" mode.
