he makes me bleed. I mean I have done almost everything..
I acted like puppy cry and walk away...i tried telling him i am the boss idea too...he is almost 3 months old.. he knows sit command and come command...i dont give him food till he sits calmly and he even shows submissive behaviors like getting on his back..
but still nothing is happening...he bites and bites and bites,,,he makes me bleed like 2 or 3 times a day...
what to do??
A firm No and a gentle smack on the snout to startle ( not punish ) should help for persistent offenders. He will eventually get it but you must be consistent. Try redirecting him with a toy when he starts to bite.
how much exercise and training do you do with him daily? (and what kind of exercise?) I'm wondering if he just isn't getting enough physical and mental exericse (age appropriate of course).
IS this happening all the time or at specific moments in a day?
Also, note that you have to keep a single method for a good amount of time (being consistant) before changing to a new one. If you have tried MANY soluations but none of them you kept for a week solid (just that one meothod) then the issue may be that you are not being clear with your signals.
Do you have toys for the puppy to play with?

Try to anticipate a bite and thwart him by getting a toy in his mouth BEFORE he bites. Don't interact with him in ways that imperil your hands and arms, you are not a chew toy. The teething idea you got in your other thread on this same topic is a good idea. Three months is a bit early for teething, in my exerience. Are you seeing blood on things he bites? I mean besides your own? LOL. Mine didn't teeth till more like 4 to 5 months. So I think you might find it gets worse before it gets better.
How old was he when he was removed from the litter?

I have a number of faint scars on the back of my hands from Gracie 'nips'. She is now 10 & 1/2 months old and finally getting over the nipping.
