di59louie Posted January 2, 2007 Report Share Posted January 2, 2007 Hi, I am new to this board and very grateful to the insights you experienced folks have. My husband and I just purchased a 7 week old (now 8 weeks and a few days)B&W tri, "Louie" so very cute!! We will be taking some puppy classes in the next two weeks but the issue at hand we have is his nipping on my bathrobe or lower pants bottoms when I take him out to go to the bathroom. Is this a puppy thing or his insticts kicking in. I am firm with him - use one word commands but he continues. He knows how to sit, come and we are working on down; he knows his name. My 2 kids (13 y.o. boy and 9 y.o. girl) are great with him and he is great with them but again he nips them. I have taught them to be firm with him and not to run away. My plan is to do trail running with him later on when he gets older and I need to stop this nipping ASAP. When I crouch down and stare at him he stops - is this the right thing to do? SOS guys! We are ignorant at this point. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
