  3. Letting us know he's gotta go

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our 3-month old boy is doing pretty well with housebreaking. He definitely knows he needs to do his business outside. However, his signal to us is often to suddenly start biting or jumping on us relentlessly -- really obnoxious. How do we convert this signal into something less harassing and...
