    DefaultPuppy bitting, growling and barking!!!!

    Hi to everyone! We are new dog owners and recently have a girl boston puppy, the passport said she was 9 weeks old, but sadly the vet inform us tha she was only 6 to 7weeks old ☹️.. She is very funny and adorable, smart and mostly quick learner. The major problem is that she growls when she plays or if my kids have her on their laps and try to take her down. And she is very bitty (she thinks it is a game) . When she bites we say NO and have a toy in front of her to redirect the bitting. It works for some seconds and then she continues. I tryied to make hand blocking with the word NO, but she starts barking and "attacks" my hand. When she barks and i SH her, she barks even more... The good things thow with my puppy is that she is mostly potty trained and when there is food she follows sit, down, some stay etc.. Due to the fact that i have children and we live in an appartment the barking and the growling plus biting needs to stop!!! Can anyone more experient or who manage to control these behaviors help me? My family and neighbours will really appreciate it ☺️

    The method I used with all my dogs is, I hold the skin on the back of the neck and give it a very gentle twist just to make her squek and say NO, you have to let go as soon as the squek. This is the way the mother says no to pups, the back of the neck is sensitive to this untill 6-8 months. It might seem cruel to you but believe me you only will have to do it once or twice and the dog will know the word NO. You must always be calm not mad when doing it and you will never loose the love and trust from your dog.You can combine your choice of hand sign along with it,and your word of choice. I teach Mine NO, SSHHHH, and a finger shake. It is my boston terriers 3 rd week in the house,I did it once she was 10-11 weeks, I don't think I will ever need to do it again cause she reacts to no. Best wishes.

    I love them so much. They are so cute and funny. I wish them kind owners. Maybe someone from https://free-spin-casino.club/ will want to buy one.
