    Default For those who had/have a puppy...

    My boy, who by the way will have a name tonight one way or another, barks and growls like a big dog then attacks and starts biting. I'm sure it's the puppy in him but goodness, he play viscious, lol. None of my previous animals have ever barked and growled as much as him, it's rather cute Just curious if this is normal or if I have an oddball on my hands.

    Winston was the same way! Just keep in mind...its cute now, but wont be when he is 60lbs. I have 2 bullies that play rough and growl (I think thats normal)but they know biting (even playing) is not ok.

    LOL! Totally normal Belly is 12 weeks old and growls and barks at her big Boston brother and actually stalks him...it's so funny, she looks like a little lioness about to jump her prey. God bless our Boston ...he hasn't taken her head off yet... I'll be glad when she's out of the puppy stage! Biting.. I don't even want to go there... my hands look like I got stuck in a thorn bush...

    he has a Boston sister, Gigi, and she is just too wild for him right now. He's only 7 wks old. I bet he could hold his own, but it makes me nervous so right now we limit their interaction til he's a tiny bit older

    He won't grow up biting, he is teething, just like a baby, freeze a cold wash clothe and let him chew on that, it will sooth his gums.

    We keep ours apart too as much as we can. Gunner is almost 13 years old and isn't feelin the puppy love. I think they'll be ok when she is a little bigger and not trying to gnaw off his ears.

    lol! Yeah @KMARINO she can't resist his springy bat like ears got him good yesterday. We got an actual doggy teething toy you freeze yesterday at the pet store. That's an awesome idea on the wash cloth!

    Brodie definatley growls when playing with Lola...he sounds so fierce but we know better. It's all puppy stage, I would expect. When we 1st intoduced him and Lola we were worried that Lola would hurt him (she's big/rough and he was so small) but he held his own. I told her in the beginning you better watch it because one day he will be as big as you. She is so good with him and knows when she is playing to rough. Brodie also makes odd noises when picking him up or loving on him while he is sleeping...he kinda moans/groans. It's funny.
    I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. ~Gilda Radner

    Ireland does not growl but she DID bite. I went and bought a spray bottle just for that and it has worked wonders, If I even go to pick it up she quits whatever bad thing she was doing or about to do... Chief was bad with my kids at biting their feet, a couple of swats with a newspaper on his bum stopped that...
