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.
Would I not be able to take them out on my own? He's already had his man-hood removed. So far he's only lost his front teeth on the top and bottom. The adult teeth are still so small, it's adorable.

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 feel you! Today has been some progress though, he's only nipped at me once. He's been going to town on his bully stick! Does cobber like those?

I have heard of it being done. If they are very loose, if you are confident & if you think it can be done without causing excess pain...you might just be able to "pop" them. Maybe ask someone with a bit more know-how on that scenario

Yes, thankfully, Cobber loves bully sticks

lol didn't you know mom's flesh is ALWAYS the best thing for soothing teething . Tessa's nipping is slowing down, but when she gets the mood watch out! She's also destroyed all fuzzy toys (stuffed or not) that I had bought her; She now laughs in the face on 'heavy duty', 'indestructible' toys.

Have you tried freezing the bully sticks (even with a little peanut butter frozen to the top)? or frozen raw real bones (their frozen to limit the germs)?

Tessa really loves the frozen raw bison ribs (though found out she's a resource guarder when it comes to them) their like $6 for a huge pack at our local pet shop. Also try wet, canned, food frozen in the kong?

If nothing frozen works, then maybe a leather toy or rope?

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm up for trying just about anything. He will chew on frozen bones but prefers to wait till they're not frozen, because I'm guessing he can taste the flavor more.

I've tried frozen pb in a kong - no interest. But he does like frozen Kong puppy stuffing in a Kong and in anything else. So I've been taking the bones he gnaws clean, packing them with mostly kibble and some kong stuffing (to hold it all together) and refreezing those. He likes those okay.

Since he doesn't seem to like peanut butter, I will try spreading the kong stuff on bully sticks and freezing those. That may be a good combo

Thanks again!!

I was going to mention what KayWilson said. Right now at this age, I wouldn't worry too much about losing those teeth, theyare usually the last to go.

Start playing tug-o-war, and after a few times, just check to see if they get loose,
And yup, load of on those bully sticks. It is so much better than flesh, your flesh.
I thought Sam would never get through the biting stage, he did, finally around 10 mos old.
He still mouths me, esp my wrist to get attention, but not with the gusto he had when he was young, no more blood and bandages.

You'll get thru this, honest !

I'm getting excited for the losing of the teeth. Harry's only 14 weeks though so I have a feeling we may be waiting a while!

He loves chewing on carrots though, really gets stuck into them so I'm glad as that will be a really good one for him when it happens!!!!

Here's one now! He's lost both upper and lower canines on one side and is having a pretty tough time chewing (aw, darn!). It makes the biting on me a lot less painful for now. And, amazingly, he didn't even try to bite me once yesterday! Today, yes, but not yesterday! I'll take it

For now I am I found a smaller one a few days ago but managed to toss it out by mistake one evening, so I put this one in a safer place.
