Default Puppy teeth!

Im not sure if im in the right place for this, but Lancer has started to lose some of his puppy teeth! (i feel so proud ). Anyway, how long does it normally take for a pups adult teeth to come through, and does anyone have any suggestions of lovely things he could chew on to help with the process?

Thanks

Usually all the adult teeth are in by about 6 months, although each dog can be alittle different. And while they are coming in, it is going to HURT, so your puppy is going to want to chew in EVERYTHING.
Info: Puppy Chewing

One of the simplest and least expensive ways to give your puppy some relief from the pain is to take a wet washcloth, twist it and put it in the freezer. When your pup needs something to chew on, give him that. You can also put the hard chew toys in the freezer, the cold really helps them.
Have fun!

The milk or puppy teeth usually start to drop at 4 months for couple months. By the time of 7 months or so they have the K-9 teeth all in. Often on pups like Shepherds the ears might droop because alot of blood flow leaves the ears and goes to the mouth during this process.
http://www.wagntrain.com/PlayBiting.htm Freeze a wash cloth as said, toys for it to chew on rather than you. Their gums get sore just like human babies. You will find teeth all over, I tried to keep some of mine in envelopes.

Young puppies are notorious at biting your hands - and those sharp puppy teeth can be very painful! But rest assured that this is a very normal thing - it doesn't mean that your pup is aggressive, just that she is young. If you watch a litter of puppies interacting with each other, you'll see them biting each other all the time. The problem is that they often mistake our hands and clothes and ankles as being just like their littermates.
How do we teach the pup not to do this to us? First, we'll start with some basic rules of how to interact with a young puppy: Puppies might see your hands the way they'd see each others' jaws. Don't wave your hands around the pup's face or grab at her. Use your hands to pick up toys (just as you'd like the pup to do) or for soft, gentle petting. Don't play "chase-me" games where you and the puppy chase and grab at each other. Play with lots of toys - you can play tug-of-war, fetch, and chase games with them (see the Games page for more information). Make sure the puppy is getting enough exercise. How much is "enough"? Probably more than you think - at least 40 minutes to an hour of running and playing a day.
Puppies LOVE to play - that's what they live for. What's the worst thing that could happen to them? Play ending. So that's how we will "punish" them for being too rough - by suddenly making play stop when they bite. The rule is "All fun and games end when puppy teeth touch human skin". Pups bite because it is fun, it's their way of playing, and it gains them attention. So, to punish the puppy, all we have to do is make the fun end. If you're playing with your pup and his teeth touch you, yelp loudly and shrilly like a hurt puppy. (If this makes him MORE excited, or if you're a guy who can't really do this, BELLOW like he's really hurt you). Immediately disengage yourself from him, and as calmly as you can, leave the pup behind (in a safe, puppy-proof place). Give him the cold shoulder. You only have to leave him for a little bit (less than 5 minutes, probably).
