    I run the house like a jail warden and am very strict about "nothing in life is free". He is 10 weeks old now and has stopped biting things except for his toys and bones, he knows "stop" when eating, "drop it" and "calm down" when playing, he also knows that to get food he must sit quietly and keep eye contact with me. I am very proud of his progress and I really look forward to the future with him. I also only give treats while training occasionally to make sure he doesn't just do things when bribed which I found helped a lot.

    I am a bit worried that what his biting will start again as he starts to teethe so I will most likely be wetting and freezing some of his fabric toys to chew on.

    And no intro is complete without photos:

    Thanks everyone

    That's great news, I was waiting for the part where he started chewing everything he shouldn't!

    Yes Franky is loved very much, we play chasies till he is fairly over it about 3 times a day together and then he likes to sit in his bed and chew on dehydrated kangaroo tail or will sit on my feet till I pick him up and give him cuddles. We also like to take short mid day naps outside where he curls up next to me on the lawn He has a range of different toys / bones / jerky / etc that I give to him on random rotation.

    Welcome @David Mann, franky is beautiful sounds like he is going great, I am from Melbourne.
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source
