Yay we bought a puppy! He is just adorable and his name is Jax. We've had him for just under a month now and haven't been having many issues.
Over the last couple of days though he has been nipping my fingers etc. a lot more than usual. He was doing it a bit when we first got him but only when he was very excited and normally a firm 'No!' would make him stop.
Lately, however, he starts to mouth whenever we play with him. He is just under 12 weeks old, so I thought he might be going through a teething phase or something. He has a few chew toys and gets plenty of exercise in the evenings. We do get a few young children coming over to play with him so I don't want this to continue in case he hurts one of them; those puppy teeth are sharp!
Can anyone offer any advice about how to encourage him to stop or what might have brought this on?
