I came back to post again about Cobber biting but it would just be a repeat of my previous post. It also still seems to happen when he's tired and cranky or tired and wound up, so I should know better. But WOW, does it hurt!
So far in the teething process he's shown no interest in anything frozen to chew on, nor did the antler soaked in broth then frozen interest him at all. Apparently only Flesh of Mom really solves the teething issue for him *head smack*. Tonight he caught me by surprise on the arm and I admit I bellowed. Didn't phase the little shmoo at all. A yipe! worked better, but really the only thing that seems to stop him with any consistency is "Leave it!" The problem is me -- I taught our previous dogs to "drop!" so I always panic and start with "Drop!" when he bites, then there's this split second while I realize he has no clue what that means and I remember to say "Leave it!" By that time, I'm pretty well chewed
This phase is over when??
On another note, Someone had told me that if the canines don't fall out on their own I need to pull them out or it could cause issues with the new growth. Is this true, and if so what do I need to look for?
I've never heard this and was hoping someone else would chime in about it...
