    Welcome to you & Buster Based on his picture (he's precious, btw) - he's still just a baby - and will grow out of it. The only thing is that you have to correct him each time, maybe with a firm "no bite" and start implementing training now. So it doesn't get worse as he gets older. He definitely is just playing, and doesn't mean it, but if you start correcting him, and rewarding him for good behavior - he'll catch on alot faster

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    I need a more recent picture as he just turns 18 weeks today. Lol
    We always say "no bite" and we just started to stop playing if he continues to bite. The vet said he should be losing his puppy teeth soon. Will that usually help some?

    Good! Keep on with the no bite, and ignoring - bullies are extremely stubborn so it will take a while for it to sink in, lol. I would love to say that it will help, but honestly probably not. You could try some nylabones, or antlers once he gets his big boy teeth in, so you can re-direct him when he's biting. Just make sure you always supervise them with anything, and get larger bones that they aren't able to swallow. Bullies are notorious for swallowing things, which can then cause an obstruction.

    Lol, yeah I remember how my last bullie would eat a bone all the way down to the very end and I would have to fish out if his mouth. Haha, Man I Miss that little bastard!

    Our new boy Fudge is a chewer really bad. It was kind of shock to me since our boxer never ate anything except one pair of my flip flops and one window sill candle light thing. He had one accident with the corner of the white trim on the bottom of the wall, but after a stern punishment he never chewed anything ever again. Our new bullie tho - omg he will literally put everything in his mouth including my boxer lol. Everytime I try to pet him all he does is bite me LOL... its cute but kind of annoying.

    All my life I had dobermans and German Shepherds and it never fails you give the raw bones. Not the joints but the one that has bone marrow in it. They will never touch your furniture. I would freeze them. They chew on that for days n days. Works!

    we tried evvvvvvvvvvverything- it was so frustrating.. But I think the thing that works the best is just be consistent.. pay attention and just keep putting a toy infront of him/her when they are biting.

    I was wondering about this too. He has been with us since Saturday. I think he is getting very comfortable in his new home. Just yesterday he started the shark attacking. With my youngest son, he will crouch down then do a flying lunge chomp thing. When I'm walking he'll bite at my ankles. We have chew toys and everything, but he really wants hands and feet. You hear a lot of "NO BITE" in our house right now.

    I know how you feel!! My hands look like I have been picking briars!! Cuts all over them to the point of bleeding. She has toys but every time I try to give it to her she bites me instead of the toy.

    I have two Bullies- same litter- one is gentle and rarely ever chews on me, while the other one looks like Bruce from Jaws. Not sure how they could be so different but they are. At six months the teething and chewing has not abated, but seems to be getting worse, as she now chews everyone and not just her sister. Funny thing is that the only one immune from their actions is my ten year old Cairn Terrier. He just looks at them and they just give him a sniff and walk with him around the yard. We have tried chew toys (ropes mainly) and she seems to enjoy flesh more. Other than stern "talks" - what has worked best? She has severe allergies and treats are a real hit or miss for positive reinforcement at this point. I have read the posts, but am still at a quandary. Thank you for any assistance.

    Have you been using the training technique.. 'nothing in life is free' ? That may help some

    What allergies, do you know?

    Thank me later. This is the only thing that worked on Bolt. All I have to do is reach for the bottle now and he stops.
