Smile Just got a pet!

Hello everyone,
I just got a beautiful golden from my local breeder.His name is Sasha and he is 45 days old.
I had loads of questions on how to take care of a puppy and train him.
So i joined this forum to make sure i am doing everything right and to learn more!
I am a 21 year old Student from Mumbai.

Cheers!

Sherin Philip

Welcome to GRF! I hope you enjoy it here and show us pictures of your Sasha. Be sure to poke around the puppy section, and to use the search bar for items like potty training, biting, etc. There are many good threads with lots of good ideas. I hope you post some pictures so we can see Sasha.

Hi guys,
Thank You for your warm welcome!
Yes i will post pics soon.
Could you give me some tips on how to stop Sasha from biting.
I understand he is a puppy and he is teething so he cant control it.
But he is 2 months old now and his teeth are getting sharp.
When he bites us ,it hurts.
I try giving him a chew toy but he gets bored soon!

A trainer showed me the best technique to stop (or almost stop) the biting. Instead of redirecting the puppy to a new toy, you have to actually play with the puppy with the toy. As she noted. Your puppy wants interaction with you, biting you gets a response, even if it's "ouch, no, stop, yikes!" I kept giving my puppy a chew toy and he would come back to chew on me... My trainer noted because I'm more fun, I make more noises etc. LOL So, we either redirect to the new toy and play tug or fetch with it. The other great distraction has been a small antler chew... We found if we hold it firm, he can chew on it and get to those back teeth and he will do this for a while...and completely forget he wants to gnaw on me!
