I recently got a Labrador Retriever puppy and she is about 8 weeks old. I have notice though when I am playing with her she is biting me more and more and it is quite painful with her small sharp teeth. Does anyone know of anything that can help curb this problem?
She also pees in the house quite often and even though I have been working with her and getting up every hour to get her outside the nonsense has continued. Any suggestions on what to do?
"Where did you come from where did you go? Where did you come from Captin I O!!!"
I would, ever time she bit you, tap her on the nose and say NO or LEAVE IT or something to that effect. My trainer just said dogs dont understand no and i dont know weaher to beleive it or not but its worth a try!
This is worth a try... hand feedhim and tell him.. "careful". Once you have that down pat ..and your playing with him.. use that word. No, does work.. but it's really not only the word..as much as the TONE. Puppies have sharp teeth...so sometimes, they don't mean to hurt you. About the peeing... maybe he needs to learn how to hold it.. See when I was braking my puppy.. I'd give him a small milk bone and make a big deal out of him going outside..He'd go atleast 15x a day without exageration.. just to get the bones... finally after a couple of weeks.. I broke him into 1/2 a bone each time.. then.. after 2 more weeks.. he doesn't need any more training bones for pottying... The milk bone trick really works.. even if he goes a drop.. but don't give him any bones unless he does go.. but when he does.. make sure you go crazy with excitement and rub him and give him bones..
