We recently brought a lab puppy and he is 55 days old we named him Zorro.
1. Zorro is biting a lot especially he is fond of biting hands. How to reduce this?
2. How do we potty train him. (Even though we take him out after food) he does it inside the house.
3. When could we give him bath.
4. Could we put him a stomach belt?
If you go into the Training Tips section, there is a thread at the top of the page that you should read. I think it will answer a lot of your questions.
I would recommend you pick up a copy of this book and read it right away, as it will answer your training questions:
Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog: Dr. Ian Dunbar: 9781577314554: Amazon.com: Books
Labs don't need baths, in fact it can be hard on their skin and coat if done too frequently. Usually a brush is all that is needed.
What is a stomach belt?
Thanks a lot...I will go through it.
I am sorry I just meant belt.
To add to the above (I'm still confused about the belt) know that during potty training your life becomes: do they have to go? Period. Puppies have tiny tiny bladders and need to go out ALOT! So when in doubt, take him out. If you're really watching, he shouldn't have accidents in the house but I'm not kidding - this becomes LIFE for a while...The times he does go when you take him out, praise him (good potty or whatever works for you). The benefit of this is in a year you can take him out and say 'go potty' and he will. Also (I learned this the hard way) if you live in a country setting - take him out away from the house and stay with him. When he's older, he'll remove himself from the local area - I didn't do this with my first lab but did with my second. It's wonderful.
Also still confused by the belt question. What do you mean?
Does he/she mean a belly band? It's like a diaper?
No idea. The nearest thing I've ever seen to a belt on a dog is a collar.
Its a band around dogs neck to put the leash.
Sorry for confusing....
That's called a collar. You can let him wear one so he gets used to the feel of it. I wouldn't let him wear it unsupervised in case he gets it caught on something. My dogs only wear their collars when we go out for walks. When they are in the house they wear nothing.
Day before yesterday we gave "ragi" (this is an Indian food) to Zorro and he had loose motions.

I spoke to doctor and he informed me not to give any other food to Zorro other than Cerelac and Puppy food for first 4 months. Is this true?
