I know my puppy is only 9 weeks old and teething, but i cant even try to play run with her because she Attacks my shoes/ankles/pants( have holes in my pants and scrapes on my ankles..owwwie). I know she thinks its a game and i have tried many things to get her to stop. Any suggestions?
Spray bottle in the face, we tried EVERYTHING I couldn't pull up pants if H was in the room, I'd be jumping round on one leg yelling DROP!!! It's not forever and they grow out of it. Although H likes jumper sleeves as he has never seen them before (in Australia it's just turning cold)
Sigh...it was not long ago I was in your shoes. Abby is 6 months now and puppy teeth are gone and that kind of behavior has stopped. I think the squirt bottle is worth a try although i used to firmly say no and put my hand on the back of her neck till she understood that I wasn't playing. She would look at me with pitiful eyes but she did learn to understand. Sometimes when she would nip hard with puppy teeth I would yelp.
Over and over and over again. This is puppy training. Hard work and lots of scratches along the way. Hang in there. They grow so very fast.
