Is your yard fenced? If it is not fenced, and her recall is not 100% solid, then she should be on a long line or a leash. I guess I am confused as to why there is no room for her playpen, if you want to use it outside (where she still has room to run off)?

Pup, I know you are young. Are your parents helping with the training at all? It is a big job, and it's great you are trying--however, I'd still encourage your parents to read up on it as well and help you out.

Also, "she is crazy" just sounds like she is untrained and under exercised. You need to work on this and not blame her. Have you read all of the sticky posts at the behavior and training sections? Do you have any dog training books by the authors/trainers/behaviorists we often recommend here? You can also go to their websites which have very helpful articles and videos. How about youtube? Ever watched the Kikipup videos?

So you're looking for a way to contain her inside during bad weather when she's feeling particularly playful?

If so, I don't think a play pen is really going to be the best solution. Playpens are more for safely containing a dog when you can't supervise than they are for exercise.
Rather than just popping her into a crate, playpen, or separate room I would suggest that you play some sort of special game inside. Perhaps fetch in the hallway, a session with a flirt pole if you have the space inside, even a training game such as 101 Things to Do With a Box.
Then give her something like a stuffed kong, bully stick, or other chew to keep her occupied. You could give her this special treat in her playpen, crate, or even just a dog bed. The playtime followed by something to keep her busy will likely help keep her calm and out of your hair.

Exclamation **** Tzu Puppy Biting...A Lot!

Hey everyone,

Im new here, I joined because I really need a lot of help...I have a 11 week old female shih tzu. She is very cuddly, lovable...BUT in the last few days she has started biting people all the time. We bought her home from the breeder two weeks ago and she did not bite at all. She would let me brush her, bath her, anything. Now all of a sudden she bites when I bath her, brush her, wash her face, or just touch her. I use to think it might just be a playful puppy thing but now when she bites its almost agressive and she growls when she bites.
This makes me so upset and sad because I love her so much, and I feel like she doesnt like people...I really just dont know what to do or why she is doing this. Please anone who can help me out here I would really, really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Nadine

Nadine, I don't want to hijack the OP's thread, but look up "bite inhibition" on this forum. You will find that it is normal puppy behavior and how to handle it.
