How old is your puppy? Do you think the growling and biting with you and with the other dog are essentially puppy play getting out of hand or is he genuinely trying to warn you off. What triggers the aggression, and what have you been doing when it happens?

It could be just puppy play. I agree, could you please be more specific?

Hi milliemel and welcome to the forum.
One thing you can do is to stop giving the pup attention for behavior such as biting and growling which you do not want. But if you could give us more information it would indeed be very helpful.

It sounds like puppy biting which is normal behavior for a pup.He is just behaving with you,in the same way,he was behaving with his siblings.Don't let him get away with it.Stop playing and take him to his crate.Do scream,just all attention when he does that!.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us. Puppies have to learn their limits with biting, mouthing, nipping, and how to play. Can you give us some more information that describes the behavior & when it occurs?

Default same thing is happening to me

My cross breed Chewie (part german shephard part staff we think) is 16 weeks old and is constantly trying to bite us when we play with him or go to stroke him. What is worrying is that he is now trying to bite my legs/trousers whenever he gets a chance (he really has hurt me a few times) I tried the scream technique but he doesnt seem to respond to that, am I doing something wrong. Also he is really starting to chew at everything (he is sneaky an does it when we are not looking) is he teething or is he too early to be teething.
We have been crate training and that has been going well.
He is such a gorgeous dog, I just dont want him to think biting is acceptable.
Will he calm down when we get him neutered?

Hi Satalitegirl, welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us. I don't think that most puppies really display aggression at that age. You just need to train your pup what is appropriate & what is not appropriate to bite/chew. Your pup wants attention when he does this. I would stand & turn away from your pup to ignore the behavior until he sits calmly & quietly or even leave the room to make sure he's left alone. The message you want to send your pup is that biting gets the exact opposite response.

I suggest you sign up for a puppy socialization class where the trainers are familiar with how to correct this behavior too. Good luck.

hi
Thanks for the warm welcome and advice. We have signed up to training classes but Have to wait about week and a half until he has had his final injections. But trust me as soon as we can he will be there training.
At the moment he has calmed down a bit. I think I was giving he too much affection and he saw me as his play mate rather than his owner/master. with persistance we will get there.
This forum i ace, by the way.
