    As per my suggestion they are so cute but sometime we are anger on them..but we have to be calm for most of the time which really help us.

    I went through the same thing with Bear after we got him. It went on for severalo weeks. It stopped but a loud NO BITE and then shunning him worked for us. Every bully is different. As frustrating as it gets they are worth it. I don't think bullies take the yelling to heart like we think they do. They are too stubborn for that, lol.

    Yep... been there... done that!!! That is why I never want a puppy again. Give me those seniors anyday.

    If I were you when you feel a bit frustrsted... just put him in his crate. They need the down time anyway. ANd it will help calm yourself down too. Your just fine... I think we've all lost our cool at some point with our pups without any ill effect. If you don't make it a habit... they understand... we all understand!
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    We got Silva when she was 8 weeks and did the typical biting stage but we had to be very stern and consistent with her. We have 2 daughters that did not enjoy the biting. I am very lucky Silva learned very qucikly what was acceptable and what was not! Good luck it will get better!

    I'm laughing b/c I have small children and a puppy. There's all sorts of yelling going on around our house.

    I've done what everyone has told you and it's working. Our command is "no biting" and we put him on his back. Every week we can tell he's biting less and less. Plus, his lost his two top canines last week. Those were some sharp buggers. Good luck.

    One thing we have had to do is to
    teach our son how to play with Jozi.
    Kids want to play ruff until the ruff starts
    to hurt. Then they don't want to play anymore.
    This sends mixed signals to the puppies.

    So we have to really keep an eye on our
    son when he is playing with her. And we have
    had to teach our son how to play easy with her.
    He wants to push and shove and be a boy with
    her. This leads to biting things she isn't suppose
    to. So now he only plays with her with her toys,
    and she is doing a lot better. Plus we don't have
    to hear "Jozi bit me!" anymore. Or at least not
    as much.

    When Chester is bad .. he just goes into his crate by himself. Tried the corner - it didn't work (some may remember he gave me "high five" when I pointed my finger at him ) And we are bad, because we are "enablers". Usually if he bites (which is not that often now that he is older and is not purposeful as he is playing).. we yell "ouch" loud and wave our hand for him to go away. That's when he'll go cower somewhere. Young puppies, yes..they think EVERYTHING is playing. I used to put Chester in his pen when he was that little, and he doesn't think of it as punishment now. After I let him out for the night (and he takes 18 hours to do his business in the snow ) he comes in and goes right to his pen and lays down and is snoring shortly. I think he thinks of his crate as the place to be that is only his and no one can get to him there
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    Tonight we tried the idea @sheila said about the pennies in a soup can. We duct taped the lid back on since I have no idea where the glue gun got to... You HAVE to try that. It is working amazingly with Annabella! This is the first time since we got her that we can sit on the floor and actually play with her instead of getting ticked in 10 minutes because she refuses to acknowledge what "NO BITING" means after drawing blood from all our body parts. She hasn't even attacked our Boston. Hear's those coins rattle and stops and sits on her butt. Use that with the "no bite" and I think you'll enjoy your baby a bit more
