Hello -
I am a first-time Basenji owner, and desperately seeking help with our new puppy. He is now 11 weeks old, and is a very
sweet and loving dog in all ways but one. Despite the constant (and very consistent) amount of comforting, kisses, praise and cuddling we give him, he continues to bite me very hard, breaking my skin. Additionally, he attacks my hair, pulling it and refusing to let go - he's a strong little guy and it really hurts !!!
I am not sure exactly what to do...he is just a puppy, and I don't want to yell at him. I do tell him firmly to "STOP", but to no avail. To make matters worse, he does not do this to my husband.

Has anyone else ever experienced this situation ? If so, how did you deal with it/improve it ??

Thanks in advance -
