2 month old springer spaniel puppy won't quit biting
(Plentywood, MT, USA)
Last week be got our 2 month old English Springer Spaniel. She has started to lay a little rough. She bites and scratches at you. I don't wantto have another mean dog. Sometimes she growls at you, I can't tell if this is just playing or she is really mad. There used to be little marks but now she bites hard and gnaws on whatever body part she's chewing on. We tried clapping our hands and telling her "No"really loud. We also put her in her cage when it got too much to take. We gave her a toy to chew on instead to distract her. is there anything else I can do? We don't have any obedience classes where we are at. Thank you for any help you can give me.
Hi there puppy nipping is normal behviour and the best thing to do is stop play and ignore them when they start to do this. Check out my guide to Springer Puppy Biting this should help solve the problem
