Did your baby Min Pin bite and chew all the time? I know this sounds like a silly question about a puppy but she gets so excited some times you do not want to pick her up because she will nip at you and if she is really excited she bites too hard. It is so funny because she will jump up and down wanting you to pick her up and then she bites the crap out of you. I have been telling her no and putting her down and not playing with her when she plays mean and try to encourage her when she plays nice but although she is extremely intelligent she gets too excited some times and it is hard to control her then. Thanks!!
I think this is the pups way of testing its dominance towards you. I dont think thats just a minpin thing' all pups will test you. I think thats what your pup's doing. There is some great info in one of ltlgtos post and dominace problems, someone else (sorry cant remember who) posted a really good article on the subject also. My minpin Max does like to be up high on things like the sofa, or the bed. I find most little dogs like to be high up.
No problem, it's so long I'm still in the middle of reading it, that's why I knew where it was. Have a good day!

Thanks for your help! I started reading this article and got busy. I will read again and read all the way through. I definitely need to let her know who the boss is. She is a very sweet dog. I just need to be able to communicate to her what I want and that she does not run things.
