Behavior & Training > 2 year old Bichonpoo biting/growling when picked up.

Our sweet Tucker has been showing some troubling behavior and I am very concerned. He is becoming less and less tolerant of being picked up or moved by my teenage sons and husband. He will show his teeth and more and more often he will snap at them. This occurs mostly when he is cozy with me.
How should we react and address it when this happens? I LOVE this dog so much and want to feel confident with his behavior.
Thanks everyone.

We have a one year old very healthy and happy Bichon Poo. Occasionally, he has a foul smelling secretion from his back side. He does not scoot, has no redness or swelling or any other symptoms of anal gland infection. Is this normal? Should I just keep doggie wipes handy and clean him up? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

thank you so much for the advice. It is a little difficult to ignore when the nipping/jumping is a.painful and b.destructive to clothing, but we will try. He actually seemed a bit better today! Maybe the vet is right after all!

Tucker is doing so well. ADORABLE, housebroken, funny, healthy - in every way the perfect 9 month old puppy with one HUGE exception. He gets so excited when he sees us walk through the door or meets someone new that he bites. He isn't aggressive or angry, rather it's like he is so happy he just doesn't know what else to do. We have tried EVERYTHING the "experts" recommend - yelping, clamping down on the jaw, sharp loud reprimands, rocks in a soda can, etc, etc, etc. The vet thinks he will outgrow it, but I'm not so sure. My husband is going to buy a shock collar if we cannot see some progress and as much as I am against that, I cannot think of what else to do. Any help would be appreciated.

Puppy Place > Recovering from being neutered...so sad

Thanks everyone!!
I am finding it IMPOSSIBLE to keep him as calm as the vet dictated we should. He is a 5 month old puppy!!! I am so freaked out that he is going to pop a stitch, but part of me thinks - if he hasn't done it by now, he's not going to, but...
believe me, I have considered the benadryl option, but he is so little at 11 lbs, I wouldn't dare try to guess the dosage. He is feeling FINE which I guess is part of the problem. Not letting him run, jump or climb for TEN DAYS!!! Just not reality, though we are trying!snoopy

Thanks everyone! He most definitely needs the cone. He tries to get at the incision every chance he gets. I do take it off when I am holding him, but part of me just wants him to get used to it and have to accept it so he isn't trying to get it off all the time. So tough. I know he will be ok, I just needed some reassurance. If he doesn't calm down with it, I will call the vet to see about another pain med. Thanks again!

Tucker was neutered yesterday and he just seems so miserable. Nothing to call the vet about, just very uncomfortable and pitiful in his "Cone of Shame" It is going to be very difficult to keep him from running and jumping and biting at the incision for TEN DAYS!!! Oh my goodness! I just need some moral support and encouragement. I was up with him at 4 this morning and am hoping it will get better sooner than later...

Thanks everybody. He hasn't tried it since yesterday afternoon and we do keep a very close eye on him. It was just so out of character, but we will do our best to catch him before...you know.puppy

Tucker has been doing AWESOME with house training. No accidents and ringing his bell when he needs to go out for several weeks now. We are very proud of him! Tonight, right in front of us, he lifted his leg next to my son's backpack. We caught him before...you know, and took him out right away. But this was just odd. Is this due to his age - almost 6 months? Is this starting to mark? He is scheduled to be neutered next Wednesday. What do you think?
