Aggressive Lab Retriever Mix 7 month old puppy

by KC

My family adopted our puupy from a shelter a month ago. They told us that he was brought back to the shelter after a few months with a previous family because he was aggresive and possesive with bones. His bone possessiveness immediately moved into being possessive of food as well. This is something we are working on and he is getting better with. The real problem now is that he gets CRAZY in the evening (around 6pm) and starts biting on everyone. This is after he has already had 3 walks. He runs around and jumps and nips at us to play or starts chewing on our hands, and when you tell him no or to stop he starts biting more and harder. We have a pinch collar that he we pull on to get him to stop, after a few times of pulling the collar and saying "no" he'll stop, but a minute later he's running at you again to bite. If we try and redirect the biting to a toy he chews on it for a minute and then goes for our hands, feet, thighs again. If we try and ignore him or turn our back he starts biting our butts or back of the legs even harder. Please help. I don't know what to do anymore. I've tried running with him to get more energy out, we've tried ignoring him and turning our back, we've tried redirecting to a toy, he just keeps biting and going crazy!! when he's not in his crazy time (which can last over an hour) he is a sweet boy, so it's frustrating

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
