Our new baby is settling in very well! He loves the car and only howled for 30 seconds the 1st night and slept last 2 nights without a sound. He has no crate, just a small cardboard box, so we have a little clean up in the morning.

The biggest problem is he is all lovely and cute and sleepy one minute, then all hyper and mouthing and biting the next! He is not being viscious, only playful, but it hurts! We take him out the room for time out, and he howls for a while, then we bring him back, he does it again! Help!!

When he hurts you, you should yelp as this is what his puupy mates would do and then they learn the doggie rules !
All puppies will have their mad moments, then crash, make sure you play with him , teach him some puppy games, maybe hiding toys, little treats etc. Have fun !:D

I feel your pain as ive had three weeks of the same!

Ive tried all advice i still use the loud OUCH when he bites skin even if it dosnt hurt.Also rather then putting them in another room you should leave the room ,dont know why but this works better,come back after 10 seconds or so and they should of carmed down.

But for when he is biting our trs /legs etc we now turn our backs dont look at him and fold your arms ,he continues for a few seconds but then he stops.

Everyone in the house needs to do this everytime,if you wave your finger or shout at them it will make them want to bite more as they think its a game.

Must admit he has all most stopped doing it to me now ,he still has mad moments but he lets go as soon as i turn around,its taking a little longer with the kids but thats because they scream and jump sometimes.

I have holes in most of my trs so have resorted to wearing old pj bottoms round the house at the moment (very attractive)just until he stops,which please god will be soon dx

Welcome Alexis and Blue Buddy:D... great advice from Donna in the same boat, its good to know you're not on your own the only other thing I'd add is to have plenty of toys that he can chew and have one ready to give hin as soon as he starts trying to bite your hands. You'll come throught the other side honest. And a huge welocme to ournew little Blue Roan to join our gang :D.. looking forward to more pics x

Oh I love roans. I have Luna who is a choc roan and Buddy's sister :). Welcome and I hope he starts behaving. Luna will bite but as soon as we give her a toy she stops and bites that instead. It's a really difficult stage so thank goodness it doesn't last!!

More photos please!

Dont be silly thats fine,yea my Buddy is choc roan.
Well thought we'd had a good day today until an hour ago Buddy started going crazy just lunging at me and biting, it all came to a head when my neighbour came over and he bit him so hard it drew blood !!!!

Have made husband take him for a walk as i feel like ive had enough today ,so believe me your not the only one suffering!

I have read that at 12 weeks this is the worst stage for biting then it should get better,god i hope so :)
