I love to bite everything. I know that I'm a puppy and teething.. but Shouldn't I remember not to bite anymore when I am scolded? Please help mommy figure me out.

LOL sometimes!! You just need some nice tough toys that are okay to bite on, and mom just needs to keep correcting you of things not to bite. You'll figure it out!!!

Good Luck

If Shanobie is biting and growling a lot you should probably seek a trainer to help you establish some leadership. Shanobie will be much happier in the long run for it and it's easier to establish these things while they are still young instead of waiting until the situation becomes even more unacceptable as they get older. Your right, teething is no excuse for biting you. Make sure Shanobie has plenty of hard toys to chew on. I like to use horns, raw bones, or bully sticks for teething pups. Don't let Shanobie even play bite as it sets them up to think it is ok to bite as they get older and it's not so fun anymore.
Hope this helps! Be a good puppy Shanobie!!!!

Another great thing to give your new baby to chew is a facecloth that has been soaked in water, rung out and then put into the freezer until it's solid.
It also serves to helps their gums.

Good luck, but it's a must to curb the biting at an early age.

Bubba is 12 wks. We have bought numerous chew toys..he has settled on a flip flop he found in my closet..go figure. They seem to be great pals and he drags it everywhere. Oh he still loves the taste of human toes, his favorite. laugh out loud

Nundu LOVES to chew EVERYTHING he can and when we first got him (3 days ago) he chewed on hands and feet as well. what worked for us is we yelled "ow!" everytime he touched us with his teeth and that had stopped him so far. now he just chews everything BUT us.
