Eeeeeek I'm excited for this starting for Harry. He's 3 months and 2 days old so I'm hoping he starts early ;-)

He has a new habit of picking up stones from the bottom of the garden, not sure if this might be why?!

I have to say that Cobber's need to chew on my flesh has significantly dwindled (can I get a Hallelujah!!??) whereas I thought it would increase at least for awhile. He still chews a lot on bones and bully sticks, but his need to constantly chew on me is less and that's a wonderful thing
KayWilson and crazy like this.

I'm pretty jealous! I will just be walking up or down the stairs and he comes up behind me and starts nipping my legs. It's so annoying lol.

Well, don't be too jealous because it turns out that Cobber's only taking occasional breaks from biting me then he starts again with gusto

He's no longer breaking the skin probably because the little razor teeth are bein replaced, but his jaws are mighty strong and it hurts. He has done very well letting go with the "leave it!" command but that also requires me to have treats or he's less inclined to let go.

On the other hand, he's also starting to really enjoy tummy and butt scratches and isn't so quick to start biting while getting those.

Anyway, long-winded way of saying we're definitely not done with biting issues!! But it does seem somewhat better

Yes, Goose is learning too. I've found that when he gets in his biting moods, he either has to poop or just really wants to play lol. I need to work on teaching him a less painful way to let me know this.


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?

If they need to be removed, try to time it with his de-sexing...that way he only needs to go under anesthetic once! Just keep a close eye on his mouth, monitor any teeth that havent fallen...catch it before he gets double row sharky mouth! It's not just canines, it's all baby teeth that might not drop.

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??

I've never heard this and was hoping someone else would chime in about it...
