11wk old English Springer Spaniel biting
My dog is an 11wk old springer spaniel and has buddles of energy as expected, we give him plenty of chew toys to keep him occupied but whenever we walk past him, he chews and bites at our legs.
Whenever we go to stroke him, he constantly wants to bite, getting harder and harder each time. I think he thinks it's some sort of game, but my worry is that it hurts already and he won't listen when you tell him 'NO' or 'ENOUGH' any ideas? Please!From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com
This is ver common in puppies, its just like a toddler hitting you to get attention. You have to teach them that bad behaviour gets nothing.
I do this by shout aaaiiiiyyyyyeeeeee when he does it, get up turn your back and walk away, no eye contact.
Hope this helps
