    Puppies, with proper socialisation, stop that behaviour at a few months old - so give it time and patience.

    You will have to excuse me now Mason


    Report me for what exactly Occy?

    For asking you to tone it down, for the benefit of a young adult?

    Report away!! This is outstanding coming from someone who instigates and was fully involved in a discussion with a valued long term member (who has now left the forum) while being a moderator! and then has the hide to give them not one but THREE warnings!! which i might add have now been dismissed.

    I suggest you PM me your mobile number if you want to discuss this, have the decency to respect other members.

    I have also well and truly had enough and have far greater things to do believe it or not.

    Ok, I would suggest giving Stuart and Tammara a call at Underdog Training.

    Let them know what is happening and ask them for recommended puppy schools, i am sure they will be happy to help.

    0402112105 Underdog Training & Behaviour Consulting - Home

    You can let them know that Nic from Hawkesbury,NSW passed on their details. I have been helping them with their Sydney training workshop which is being held in June.

    Good luck, let us know how you get along

    Hi there....have just found this thread and it sounds like you have a puppy similar breed to my bull arab. She was very mouthy as a young pup and she also did the very same thing to my 8 y/o daughter as yours is doing with your sis.
    Candy would be fine with everyone else but come my daughter, she'd just jump and bite her all the time. I told my daughter she has to be the boss of Candy and when she gets jumped on, to say NO and turn around...if Candy didn't let up, my daughter was to come inside and stay away from pup for a while. She also has to make Candy sit everytime she pats her. Candy would bite her clothes and her arms ( play bite..but unwanted!)...it has taken us a few months...Candy is now nearly 7 months and she is MUCH better. One big thing with young kids and young pups though....the kids often send out mixed signals..one minute it's ok to play bite and jump, then next minute it's unwanted. I had to give my daughter a good talking to about this as she was just confusing Candy.

    Puppy pre-school is a great place to go and learn all the basics to get on the right track

    Thanks for the help Billy.

    We have arranged a VET appointment for him soon for his injections. So we will take our list of questions and ask him as well as recommending puppy school - for what i have heard, many VET's do puppy school themselves.

    He still bites, and bites me as well! MY pants, shoes and socks lol. So he needs serious help. Another thing, he has found his way to the front yard where we have gates that he can slip through and run away. Thats another problem.

    Hey Mason

    No worries, yes your best bet is speaking with your local vet. If they don't hold puppy school ask them to refer you to a vet close by who does

    Yes ask every single question! and pour your heart out...let them know what is happening on a daily basis, your families concerns and work hard for Benji

    Getting out of the yard is not good. Are you able to confine Benji to the backyard/inside? It may need some work though it is well worthwhile and Benji's safety is a priority, esspecially as he is very young, vulnerable and untrained.

    Ozeymum has raised a really great point. Kids (your little sister) do send mixed messages....one minute they dont mind a puppy jumping and biting, the next it is a big problem. Consistency is so important....

    If Benji is allowed/rewarded to jump and bite, he will continue to do so.

    So if you allow him to jump and bite when you get home from school (because you missed him) yet dont tolerate it on other occasions he is naturally getting very confussed.

    I hope this makes sense

    I think it is outstanding that you are working so hard for Benji He is such a lovely boy, and well worth the effort!! please let us know how you go!
