10 Week Old Australian Shepherd
by Pam N
We just rescued a 10 week old Australian Shepherd, she is amazingly smart, already notifying when she needs to go out, sitting before going out and coming in, learning to lie down and truly we have fallen in love. She nips and bites like other puppies I have known, the problem seems to be when she is removed from or denied what she wants to do, she goes into a frenzied growling and biting fit. I have tried holding her snout while saying NO BITE firmly and even holding her on her back submissively. This only makes her more frenzied and bite harder, she has drawn blood on my 13 yr old son several times and he is getting fearful of her, I am in the process of contacting trainers, but not sure what I can do in the meantime.
