Thank you! Things were a bit rough at first trying to adjust but now that she is able to get outside and we can get that energy out she has been such a joy and sweetie! :) like yall said, "A tired puppy is a good puppy".

Thank you for the feedback! I will have to try that next time and see if it works! When did Lela stop biting, was it around six months or so?

Let me know what your trainer tells you!! I have a 13 week old baby right now and she is getting better with her biting but it is still there and I am still trying to get it to stop! I know we have a while to go but I have researched every meathod amd been trying to put them into practice as much as possible!! I started using the spray bottle and that has helped reinforce my commands but she is very stubborn! Lol she is the worst when she is getting tired and her nips really begin to hurt. I usually put her in her cage when she starts snorting and snarling because that's usually when she is getting pretty worn out. Has anyone else experienced that behavior with their puppy or is that just our crazy Lulu GRace? Lol

I got my new baby last week and have learned lots of things about me and her this last couple of days! Lol. She has been a very nice addition to the family, she is sweet (when she is tired) playful, utterly cuddly (which is so sweet) and very attached! I just had a few questions about the breed that I can't really seem to find online. Will they always be so cuddly and attached or is this something they grow out of? Are they good with multiple people or do they attach more to one person? Also anything else interesting or you have experienced would be nice to know! I have read up on this breed a lot but sadly I only really come across negative things :(. Although our Lulu Grace is a handful she is such a sweetie when she wants to be! Thank you!

That is just the stage that she is in right now! They explore everything with their mouth, like children, and it really won't be letting up until she is around 6months or so! I have been saying 'no bites' to my girl and take her away from that area and give her her favorite toy. If she is biting me I will put her down and tell her no and walk away. I will also spritz her with water when she is biting something really bad like my shoes :(! That seems to be working, but it will take time because she is so young! Just be patient with her and reward her lots when she is doing good. As for your other dog, she will let the puppy know when she doesn't like what she is doing!
Good Luck and I hope this helped some! It's an awesome time because they are so darn cute, but it is very frustrating also!

Very cute! Mine is 9 weeks and nipping EVERYTHING! She is learning but I am definitely having to pray for patience! Good Luck!
