The Hunt Dead work progresses, I used a hand signal here. I only do this a couple of times a day to balance letting her develop her independence.

I think she has doubled in size since she arrived. A Teething Terrorist at the moment.

Thank you.

Shaping/Training continues several times daily. Did this work moments ago.

I NEED A PUPPY!!!!

Porter. For hand biting, I make it as unpleasant for the pup as it is for me. I grab whatever I can, tongue, lips and give 'em a good pinch.

Fighting the same war here, same as puppies before. I grab the muzzle from over the top, roll their lips into their own sharp teeth and say NO! at the same time. If they yelp all the better. Gentle does not work with the bold ones.

You can see in my video posts I productively embrace Positive Re-enforcement training methods in a big way at this young puppy stage of training.

At the risk of taking some online heat, I will also share that I make use of a riding crop with a wide flat plastic popper on the end. (The end is key as the wide tips will not injury a puppy whereas the long nylon strand models will.)

This puppy will jump up on anything when it is boiling over with energy in the house, she chews on floor mats while 4 different chew toys are in reach ...

A good swift swat with that riding crop and a NO! happens often at the moment.

The term Teething Terrorist has been heard in our household.

Boy do I appreciate my obedient well trained adult dog! I enjoy developing puppies in the field, in the house they are a necessary evil for awhile.

Seems like some are worse than others but they are all like little termites. Same method as AG for me but I use a willow switch in lieu of the riding crop and a firm no. I also go through a lot of pig ears.

You can have mine!!!
I can handle the hand biting. I can even take the ankle biting.
The one that is getting to me is while I am carrying him down the stairs to go out at 0-dark-30 to go potty, and he reaches up and grabs my lower lip with those EFFING puppy teeth giving me a bloody lip. I admit to biting him back on the scruff of his neck...In my defense, My hands were full and I didn't want to drop him.

I do the same lip curl thing as you all do. He just seems impervious to pain. This stage will pass (I keep telling myself).
Good thing he is cute.
