Mouthing and rough play
I added a new dobie to my family about 6 weeks ago and his name is Clyde. He is now 16 weeks old and for a puppy has been very well behaved. He knows several commands and is pretty much conpletely potty trained. We are still having some issues with mouthing in which we have tried several different approaches but has not seemed to help. I am just wondering if maybe just keeping up with the same tactics is the best approach, and eventually they just start to learn they shouldn't be biting? We are pulling away witha firm no and replacing our hand with a toy. I also have three children who are 10 months, 2 and 6. I know I am probably nuts adding a puppy to the mix! My toddler and 6 year old usually will just run away when the puppy starts playing rough or biting, so if there is anyone else with young children, what did you do to prevent the kids from being scared?
