My 2 year old half cattle dog half basenji claws and scratches while playing with humans, how do I get him to stop?
I adopted him 3 weeks ago and he is a great dog, submissive, potty trained, the whole 9 yards. But when we play or he wants more attention than he's getting he uses his paws like hands and claws at my face, back, or wherever he can reach. He means well but it HURTS! When I try to discipline him, he thinks we're playing and comes back with another swipe. How do I discourage this behavior?
