A ray of hope for all you new puppy people

Just wanted to give all the new puppy people a ray of hope at the end of the bitey puppy tunnel....

My DH and I were just talking about Sage and saying how we noticed that she rarely puts her mouth on us anymore...She is 12 wks and it just seemed in the last week as if she got it...

I do not think we are over it totally yet, as she still tries but when I tell her no bite she stops! (can you hear the Angels singing)

I can't tell you how many times I felt the same way so many of you are saying you feel in your posts. I got really frustrated with her one day and told my DH when he got home that I thought perhaps we had bitten off more than we could chew. There were days where I was so exhausted and thought if I had to re-direct one more time I was going to just put on a straight jacket and check myself in

She is becoming the snugly love bug I so hoped for when I decided to get a Golden. She is even better with visitors this past weekend. I'm not saying I did anything right here either...It could just be that she is a great dog despite me...lol!!!

When you are feeling discouraged and thinking you just can't do this one more day...know it does get better.

I'm sure I have many challenges ahead and really hope I haven't spoken to soon...but I'm going to take this last week and run with it

Thank you! Clover is 10.5 weeks. Some days it seems like she's just little bitty bundle of energy that can't sit still. However, I've noticed a few times, for very brief periods, that maybe she's changing a bit. Like possibly, she's biting a bit less and actually curling up in my lap to destroy her toys for a few seconds. I didn't even want to say it out loud in case I was just being too hopeful. Maybe there is a little change happening. Either way, I'm head-over-heels.

We are seeing some progress in the bitey, only to have him regress the next day! I'm sending Yogi to your house for bitey bitey inhibition training!

I love the name Sage. My Lucy's mother's name is sage. Lucy turned 5 months today. She is still bitty..although I have to say that we do have some very nice quiet times more often .she gives us a lot of joy.

Vinnie stopped the puppy biting at 5 1/2 months but he still plays too aggressively. He's in timeout as I write this.

So glad that Sage is being so good she's very cute! Our boy is 10wks old and the bitey stage is in full swing here lol. He's a good boy though and does stop when you say no bite and give him a toy instead. Such sharp little teeth though lol.

I don't think we are totally through with it, but I do think we have had a break through. I just hope that all who are where I was at 8wks of age with a very mouthy girl who didn't listen, mostly I'm sure because she didn't know what I was asking of her...to know that it does get better and they aren't mean or aggressive...they are just simply puppies...lol

Congrats. I hope mine gets better soon. She's almost 3.5 months and still bites at DS every chance she gets. She also bites at us, but not as much. I got some bitter apple spray and am going to cover my hands with it, play with her and see if it will help.
