large malamute puppy -very rough
Mals grow faster than most breeds, so at only 4 mos my dog is already the size of a adult lab. She plays very rough and is very mouthy. Its hard to play with her because she jumps up on me, bites at me etc and its constant. Its gotten to the point that I dont even want to play with her because it leads to scratches and bites all over me. She is my 3rd mal BUT I got her at 8 wks from a breeder. I've never raised a puppy from this young. She also has excitement and fear incontinence - meaning she KNOWS not to pee in the house but if the kids scare her ( intentionally or not) or if she's happy and excited or playing she pees and can't make it to the backyard. Nothing I've tried works. Im considering buying her a muzzle. I know you should STOP playing with them if they get bitey which is hard because I do want to play with her but she needs to STOP hurting me. Any advice? Alot of her issues are BREED specific.
