Ok so 4-5 days ago i got a new german shepherd puppy aprox. 2months old...I noticed she has a bald spot on her hind leg about the size of a Jumbo Marker Cap...She doesn't seem to be bothered by it and appears to lick it occasionally.....she often scratches by her collar(maybe she hates it idk)....and bites her lag sometimes....even after a bath....like 4 hours later she will bite her leg and scratch...what is that..I'll try to get a pic....also...I have her in a Box in my room....its fairly large a cardboard box for bulk cornflakes....every night she climbs out of the box and Poops and pees in my room....it wasn't like that before when she whined..now i can't even hear he whine....today she ate little food and im worried...shes not very energetic and just sleeps..she tries to bite my hand soemtimes but i think shes just teething....any tips for a newbie dog owner...?
A vet is a good idea for the scratching and not having much energy. Our german shepherd puppy is full of energy. She could have parasites or something more serious that is wrong.
Get a crate so she can't crawl out. If she's not being watched carefully, crate her until she starts holding it longer. When we first got our girl we were walking her every hour to keep her from having accidents. Then we stretched it to two hours, and so on.
