You guessed it; this week has been very trying & full of biting.
Dottie is teething and really likes to bite. She bites everything including us, our hands and feet. It hurts, a lot. I feel for her. I bet her mouth hurts terribly, but it really hurts when she bites us too. This is a list of what we’ve done to handle the situation when she bites us or something she shouldn’t & the results:
- say ‘No,’ or ‘Bad girl,’ or a combination of both — she still continues to bite & growl
- put her in her crate for a time out — tends to work sometimes, but not always
- pick her up & relocate her — doesn’t really work
- put a toy in her mouth — works sometimes
Let’s hope this is truly just teething. If so, it should stop soon! Good thing she’s cute!
