Rough Puppy?

Hey everyone,
I know puppies are going to be bitey and playful but I was wondering if you do nothing about it will they continue to do it as adults? I have an older female who the puppy is always biting and she get's really annoyed and barks and snaps at the puppy (Holly), Holly thinks shes tough and bites and barks back. Also Holly will sometimes chase you and bite at your ankles and growl if you pull her off you, and it can hurt.

Now, I'm not too bothered about it right now but I was wondering are you supposed to train them out of it now or do they just grow out of it?

for the most part your older dog will help "train her" which is what the bark/snap is all about...

Do you have a toy you can redirect her too when she is too rough?

If shes biting you or the other dog too hard you can yell "ouch!" and then stop play for a moment...if she persistant you can yell "ouch" and leave the room for a moment. They will learn that biting too hard ends the fun.

how old is she?

She is six weeks, I know much too young but we didn't know she was that young until after she made the 3 hour journey here.

six weeks is young, its good that you have another dog to help you teach her not to bite too hard. i find that keeping lots of stuff around that she can bite is good. when ever you play with her and she starts to get mouthy, give her something to redirect to. when you say ouch, yelp it out loudly and in a higher pitch. this will startle her a bit and interrupt the behavior. one thing to remember here is consistency. she will have a hard time learning that she can't play like this if you allow it to be ok sometimes and not others so you have to make sure that others don't play too rough with her either...

This is the best advice, helped so much with my puppy because he can't hear. I would redirect to a toy and also allow the older dog to teach the pup.

Oh my...six weeks...

try to get as much interaction with other dogs in as you can...small breeds should stay with mom and litter for up to 10-12 weeks. Not that its your fault or anything.

Yeah we told my uncle just to tell us when she was ready to go, so I just assumed when he said they were ready to go that she was at least 8 weeks and it wasn't until I asked him what age she was two days later that I found out she was only six weeks. I felt awful.

I can't really mix her with any other dogs much because my friends terrier would kill her and I don't know anyone else with dogs near me, none of my relations that live within an hour and a half of me have a dog.

She is doing well though, playing, eating and doesn't cry much at all at night.

Its not the end of the world if you get them young, having your other dog around is better than nothing.
