aggressive puppy
by: Anonymous

How long is your puppy left in the cage. Many people leave their dogs for far too long caged then expect them to act normal when released.A puppy or dog should never be caged for more that 3 or 4 hours.It sounds to me as if he is letting off steam. Play with a toy and encourage him to bite on that instead of you! Sounds like a cute puppy, just needs some training and freedom!

Suddenly Aggressive Male Rottweiler Puppy
by: Anonymous

I don't know how to ask a question so cna I just post it here? We got a male puppy (pure Rottweiler) 2 and a half months ago. His mother and father are both dominant according to the seller. But when he arrived, he was actually calm and very friendly with me.

This month, I am confused and a lil bit worried because when I open his door, he would jump at me. If I try to stop him, he would playbite my hands and arms hard. I often get reddish scars. If I tell him no he doesn't listen. Sometimes when I pat him on his stomach he stops for a while but continues later on. Is he trying to be dominant with me? What should I do??

My Lab pup/Dog attacks in the yard, and when Im on the phone
by: Anonymous

I have a yellow lab that is now 10 months old. I got him at age 8 weeks, he probably came form a puppy mill,as he was purchased at a pet store. From age 8 weeks, he began running around the yard like crazy, during a game of fetch or not, and jumping on me as he sped by, biting hard, ripping clothes, etc.. he did fetch, but soon just began this behavior. I had swing sticks at him to protect myself from his hard jumping and targeted biting, scary. Ive trained dogs and horses for 40 years, and never experienced this, He got to teh point where when i went into my yard to play fetch or do yard work, he would bark, growl, show his teeth and then attack and rin away, come back and do it again, ripping clothing, and biting hard enough to make black and blue marks. As a pup he had no bite inhibition, and still jumps on all strangers approaching to pet him, he bites their hands, hard enough as they try to pet him.He also wags his tail and will throw himself on teh groundm subbmissively while people pet him, but continues to bite, as if he doesn't know what else to do. His attacks on me were only happening in the yard, now, he does it at a tennis court that is fenced in where i take him to fetch for exercise. Pretty nuts! I went to put the leash on him, and for the first time, he did it at this location yesterday.All the time I was telling him to SIT, he would not. I had to leave the tennis court, while swinging the retractable leash at him to fend off his leaping and biting.He leaps at you, bites in the air near your face,jumps on you, barks, bites in the air or at your clothes,will try to grab a sleeve, he then runs back or circles you and continues this behavior.once outside the tennis court, you cant turn your back on him , I sat down on a bench and he then sat while commanded to.He also bites at me and barks and runs behind my chair while I am on the phone every time,I have to put him ion a kennel in the living room or outside so I can finish a call. He will sit and lay down, sit and wait for a command to eat, he is not allowed on furniture, and sleeps in his own bed in my room at night, He will put his paws up on the bed to wake me in morning to go out. He is a loving dog but easily startled and jumps at things on the tv, literally jumping and contacting the Tv screen, what to do? never saw a dog like this, he is a purebred lab.He is also submissive t older dogs at the dog park they pack up and chase him,and he rolls over on the ground. thanks

Almost 6 month old aggressive play biting
by: Anonymous

5 1/2 month old Our Heeler/German Koolie likes to bit when she plays with us on the floor. But when we push her away when she bites to hard, she gets more aggressive in her play biting to the point we have to grab her by the nap and put her outside or into her kennel.

When to start
by: Adam G. Katz

I typically start formal obedience training (with the collar) at around 4 to 4.5 months of age... when you see the adult teeth start to come in.

Aggressive Rottweiler Puppy
by: Kris

Hello.

To me it sounds like totally normal puppy behaviour for this age.

They discover the world with their mouth and teeth, plus have you trained him to listen to you?
If you tell him to stop biting, does he know what you mean by NO?

Also I think it has to do with how much time you have to deal with him and let him out of crate?

Anyway, don't worry just yet, puppy biting hands and legs and all the moving things is normal, just keep it under control, and tell NO when the biting gets harder or hurts you.

Even when the bites are not so hard, don't let him chew on your hands even as for playing, take his chewing toy and put in his mouth, this way correcting him and letting him know, on what he can chew.

Also keep in mind to avoid doing all the things you do not want him do later, for example jumping on you, bend over and pat him or say hello.

Firmly but not harshly say NO to hands biting, just for him to learn from puppies age not to bite even when playing. And for obedience I started with my German Sheppard puppy when he was your puppy's age also simple commands like sit, down, come and get my puppies attention when calling his name (teaching puppy his name).

If this is your first puppy, try to find some information in books or on the internet. As a Rottweiler is a lovely dog and a very cute puppy, when they grow up they need to be teached and disciplined.

Anyway, as I said, no worry's until now, he is just a playful puppy and believe me, all the puppy's behave that way. Be sure to spend enough time with him, playing and exploring, he will be a big dog and he needs to move and exercise:)

Enjoy Your puppy, who really is a cutie..

Puppy Biting
by: Adam G. Katz

Hi, Mr. Wong:

You haven't said how old your dog is, but judging by the picture I'd guess 7 weeks?

At this age, you just want to redirect the biting with a toy. If he gets over-the-top too rambunctious, then put him in the crate until he calms down.

When he's older, you can use the training collar and tab to correct him, but more likely this is just puppy behavior that he will outgrow.
