As most of you know we just got our pup this past Sunday.He is only 7 weeks even though the web page says 8 weeks(wrong) anyway he is a feisty little guy.If we are walking around the house he attaches himself to your shoe or pants and starts pulling.I yell NO and try to pry his mouth open to get out whatever is in there but he comes back for more.We bought a ton of chew toys for him and tried giving him a toy when he starts to chew on one of us but that only last for a little bit and next thing you know he has attahced himself to us again.I know puppies go through this but to be honest I don't remember it being this bad.Any idea to help stop this or a good toy to keep him busy.We have all kinds of kongs and squeaky toys and balls but he prefers our shoes,pants,hands,ears,shirts and so on.

This is sort of hard to type to explain but use your fingers as a bite, since the puppy is small, use two fingers and assertively put them on the puppies neck when he bites you while saying "no bite". This is the way the mother teaches the puppies not to bite, so your using your hand as the mothers mouth sort of. If you understand what I mean.

Don't push him away when you do this though, just press his neck and see how he reacts. He'll probably be like "huh? what was that?" and stop biting. As soon as he stops get a toy that you know interest him and squeak or make him bite that. His teeth might be hurting too, so here's a little recipe I found that's good for puppies teething. Put a bit of peanut butter at the bottom of the kong to block the hole, then pour chicken broth into kong and freeze it overnight. This is also good for hot weather days.

Hope I helped :wink: !

Put him in a crate for five weeks. Worked wonders for Deuce, j/k. But before his surgery he was a biter. After being in his crate for five weeks for recovery, he came out as a new dog. He is so much better. I guess he forgot his old ways. Anyways, good luck with the pup. Just thought I'd share my experience. But believe me, it was so hard keeping him locked up. I felt like such a bad momma. I am sure everyone can give you some tips to help.

Thanks for the advice but this was an old thread that someone dug up.
Happy to say Buster has out grown that stage :lol:
