peanut butter/?

hey everyone!
this is my second post!
so for my little Kaesie, who is 8weeks old now been with me for a week!
shes responding better and better to my firm NO!s but still loves biting me.
you think peanut butter will make it better for her and for me?

*ps* sometimes when i say no and let her not bite me, she growls and barks and tries to bite me more, is this playing???? and when i lay down on my bed she rushes to my face and bits licks!
should i let her lick my face?
should i let her get on top of me when im laying down?
i can deal with bitings and her puppy baby behaviours but, i cant stand to think that she might not like me, or wont get attached to me...
your thoughts guys?

Peanut butter gave Molly the worst diarrhea at 10 weeks old. It's too fatty for young stomachs. She gets it now though.

The idea of putting peanut butter on your hands to reduce biting has never made sense to me. It seems like it would encourage even more biting. Some people believe in letting their puppies bite them to teach bite inhibition. I tried that, and it did not work out so well. Those teeth are just too sharp.

In general....peanut butter is by far Bella's favorite treat. I just don't serve it to her in my hands.

My third golden girl Gracie was very bitey bitey so I did use peanut butter and cream cheese on my fingers and tried to instill kisses which did work. Takes time.
Just keep peanut butter to a minimum. I know the bitey stage is tough but hang in
there once their baby teeth are gone things improve. She may get so excited when you
are down on the floor because you are down on her level and her playing mode with the nipping follows. Your puppy is just being a puppy. Correct her as you have been
try distracting her with other toys when she gets too bitey. You will be doing this for awhile.
I have a 4 month male puppy Sheldon. He's a little bitey not too bad. He play growls
with his leash in his mouth which I am trying to correct with positive training.
Good Luck

Growling and Barking...normal here!!! We end play when this happens, and honestly after a week and a half, you can kind of see when it's going to "ramp up" so we try to end it before it goes to far.

As for the not liking you...lol! I actually thought that about Sage the other day. She is so excited to see everyone, tail wags the whole thing, for me she walks up to me and sits looking at me and lets me give her a pet. I am the one with her most of the time, I do most of the teaching/discipline....the others are just pretty much fun. I don't think she doesn't love me, but I do think she respects me a bit more than them and knows I don't like nor will I tolerate jumping at my hands, hanging from my pants, and honestly I am where all good treats come from and she knows if she behaves she might get one. Now this isnt to say she isn't naughty with me, she is but not as often as she was. She will love you...I'm sure she already does!!!

I am one of those who have allowed her puppy to nibble on my hands, ears and nose. Also always allowed her to lick peanut butter off my finger. At a young age I would not give too much. A little lick here and there about once a week and she will adore you for it.
I did however correct every time she was too hard with her teeth and I will not claim that I never had bite marks on my hand - but she never broke my the skin. Only one time she did break DH's skin while he was playing with her. She was under the bed and out of nowhere her sharp little teeth grabbed his finger - it wasn't intentional. When he exclaimed "Ouch that was way too hard" she knew she did something wrong. She was by his side the entire time afterwards.
Probably when you say no to her she more or less thinks you are playing with her and that's why she growl and barks back.
Everytime we lay down on the floor Rose knows that she is invited to jump on us and play. I would lay down on my stomach and cover my head with my arms. She jumps on me trying to get to my nose and she can't. And then she gets frustrated and she growls and tried to put her paws under my arms.
Last night I sat down on the floor, this time in a prayer type position and then put my head on my knees. It was sort of interesting. At first she wanted to play but then she came and laid down next to me and barked a couple times and then she started licking me. I laid down then next to her and she just cuddled, she was pushing her back into me and we fell asleep for a couple minutes like that.

She's only 8 weeks old. Be prepared for this to last several months. Patience is key. Make sure to give her something appropriate that she can chew on. Puppies are chew monsters and need to get that chew on.

As to the bonding... your puppy is still very very young. She will bond with you as you both go through the training and learning stages together.

We have had a few GR's over the years and only one was not a chew monster. It is interesting to note that he wouldn't retrieve either! You have several months of non-stop biting/chewing ahead and your pup needs to know that toys are OK but YOU are not.

When you get down on the floor it's an invitation to play hard and get rowdy. Personally, I'd dress for the session with long sleeves, etc. and have fun, but watch your face. Puppies don't know that bites and scratches on your face are not fun for humans. I lost a contact that way, and my husband had to wear an eye patch and use antibiotic eye drops after "playing" with our rambunctious puppy who was just having lots of fun.

Some day you'll wonder how the puppy grew into a dog.

That doesn't work well with two small children in the house. At least not my children.
