|Whats normal in regards to puppy biting behaviour? Bella has started biting and with me especially she wont stop. She bites my toes, legs, hands, face, hair sometimes up to 30 times during a day - its exhausting. She bites my partner too, however with me she will bark at me and lunge. She has even stopped playing with a toy, walked over to me and bit me.
How do you handle this? Ive tried walking away but she just follows biting at my legs or entertains herself (doesn't care) if i close the door behind me. Ive tried saying "NO" loudly but she just barks at me and lunges.
Ive heard that yelping might help, however my other half cant yelp and i do want to keep it consistent between the 2 of us.
He wants to whack her bum (either with a hand or newspaper) but i know she is in her fear period right now and don't want to cause fear biting
Is this normal? or does it seem a bit extreme? I want to nip this in the bud now while she is still 3kg and not 13kg!
