My 2 month old puppy is teething and sometimes he tends to take it a little to far with my other two dogs. My other two are small dogs and I want to know how to nip it so he doesn't continue this behavior. I know they are sensitive dogs and I want to do this the right way.

Just keep replacing chew toys! lots and lots of things other than your other dogs to chew on! When mine was really early in teething I would wet a wash cloth and freeze it then give it to her to chew on. Felt good and wasnt' too hard. Never discipline at this age, just redirect with positive reinforcement.

Take a deep breath, the Doberfun has just begun!!! LOL. Mine is now 7 months and what a trip! They really are a special breed. Lots of really good advice on here from people with tons of experience.

Thank you so much. I'm glad to know I've been doing it right with replacing with chew toys. He is such a love haha I'm going to use your tip with the wet wash cloth and see if he likes that :) I'll let you know how it goes
