|My puppy is a golden retriever, and I thought they were supposed to be soft-mouths! I know she's a puppy, but she WON'T stop biting. And it's not teething, it's I'm-going-to-bite-off-your-face biting.
If you tell her no, she bites more. If you have to physically move her away, she bites more. If you yell at her, she bites more. If you tell her no firmly, she bites you more. If you get up and walk away, come back, she'll bite you more.
She just doesn't stop. Today she bit me hard in the arm and I started crying, could just be because I've been emotional lately but nonetheless. My mother had to step in and tell her no, but she kept going for me. Kept lunging to bite me. If she were a dog, that would be a really scary situation. Then she started barking at me in frustration cause she couldn't get to me to bite me. She even turned on my mother a couple times and she's pretty forgiving when it comes to my mother.
She's a smart dog; we've only had her for a week and a half and we've already taught her Sit, Stay, Come, Down, Leave It, Up, and I think that's it.
But the biting is a major problem and I don't know how to handle it. I've even tried the shake can method, but she barks and bites at that and just gets mad at it.
I'm lost, and I don't know what to do. I'm hoping I can get something from you guys, but I honestly think there is nothing else but stay away from her and wait it out or something. I don't know. I'm lost. Please help.
