Hi all, thanks for providing the forum, I hope it comes in as helpful as I hope.
We got our pup, Mosby Theodore Pupperkins Thomas 11-17 at 6 weeks old, making him 11 weeks today!! He's not AKC, but that wasn't high on our list. I actually was wanting a female, since they seem more docile and my last yellow lab/border collie was female and was the best dog I've ever owned. But as soon as I saw the father with his deep red hair and Mosby with a nice red coat and deep red ear hair, I didn't care about gender anymore and couldn't resist him at that point. I always have had a thing for redheads (ask my redhead wife, haha)
Can anyone point me in good direction for him? Training and such mainly? He's pretty well potty trained now, but we are having a problem with him nipping/chewing/biting on myself, the wife, our 3 year old and 11 month old and toys that aren't his. I know he's playing, but I need to curb it and also curb him getting overly excited when someone new (like my Mom) comes over to visit.
Thanks again and in advance!!
