My puppy's teething - May 4th 2010, 10:03 AM

I've posted something about this on my other thread but she's getting worse :| She keeps biting everything in sight, including my fingers, shoes, jeans, bag etc. _____ It's starting to hurt too. Whenever she does this I give her one of her chew toys to play with but she doesn't quite get biting me is bad.

She's 6 weeks old btw.

Aww. I don't have much advice. Just try to get her to play with toys. My puppy is 4 months and it seems like she's teething. She bites everything and it HURTS. Good luck though!

Puppies love to chew when they're teething, and don't quite understand why it hurts, next time she starts chewing on your clothing/stuff try giving her a bone with a hole in the middle with some peanut butter stuffed in it, it will keep her entertained for a while and helps her to chew on something. As to the biting hands, she's at that age where she would be learning to not bite from her litter mates. The best thing to do, is when she in ANY way bites is to yelp (as odd as that sounds) and leave her alone (just walk away and stop playing) This article http://www.pets.ca/articles/article-dogmouthy.htm has a lot of information. Hope this helps and that all goes well with your new puppy!

SERIOUSLY DO THIS.

Put a toy in peanut butter, and like, don't GLOMP the peanut butter on but enough to just have it on there is good.
put said toy in the freezer and let it freeze
give said toy to puppy. They love it. My dog loved it because it was frozen so it felt nice and it's got peanut butter so it's like "OMG YUM YOU GOT ME WHAT?!"

you can also give puppy some ice cubes or just like...any frozen toy.

Oh, I forgot you were supposed to freeze it! I haven't had a puppy in forever haha. But they love the peanut butter and it gives them a chance to dig for it and chew it and it feels great!

Yeah, I was going to suggest the 'yelp' and stop playing, I remember reading that one somewhere.

I've tried the yelping plan and she seems to be biting less hard She seems to bite more when I hug her and play. LOL I yelped when I was on the phone to my friend (she bit my foot ____) and he thought it was actually the dog

Haha ^^
Also, make sure you have a strong NO command. A strong NO, will stop the puppy doing ANYTHING you don't want it to do.
I agree with the other posts though - also, puppies chew when their bored =]
Getting the pup excited WILL make her bite though, so try not to punish the pup for PLAYING, just make sure the pup knows that biting hard during play isnt acceptable.


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

If you stare at a dog in the eyes, the first one who looks away has dominance... So.. Stand you ground =)

Re: My puppy's teething - May 8th 2010, 12:16 AM

When all my dogs have started teething and biting, we've always just done the age old trick, make them bite themselves.
We just put our hand over their snout and push their lips inward under their teeth, it makes them realize "Oh crap, my teeth hurt!" And soon enough they've stopped. Please guys, don't tell me this is abuse. I've heard it all lol. Its worked for us every time, and I have a great relationship with my dogs. But you kinda have to know your dog, because they're different and respond different to this stuff... Because really, you can't have your dog biting at all. Playing, is great. I rough play with my dogs all the time and they love it. But they never bite. If they bite you, then they think it's okay to bite other people when they're playing. And soon enough, you've got a lawsuit. And your dog is taken away, and possibly put down because they're dangerous or something. (You think I'm making this up, I'm not. People are just looking to sue, all the time.)

Also, I highly suggest bones. We get nylon bones, which last for months on end (and clean your dog's teeth) along with rawhide bones. Though lately we haven't been using the rawhide bones, because we have two dogs and one will finish it really quickly while the other just holds it in his mouth and teases the other dog... I'm afraid it will lead to a fight But for puppies, bones are great.

And seriously, do not be afraid to tell your dog No. It's not yelling for christs sake, it's sternly saying No. (if you can't tell, I'm starting to get sick of people telling me I abuse my dogs when all I do is tell them no. I refuse to raise a wild dog that will attack someone when they're just playing and get taken away from me, I just refuse it. lol mini rant over)



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
