James is a little terror when it comes to biting, but I'm having particular issues with leash biting. He gets put on his leash in the front yard to toilet (it's unfenced and I also want him to learn to contain his toileting in one general area) and also just for general "sniffing expeditions" around the front yard.
Problem is he's always going after the leash. And growling - he doesn't normally growl when he bites unless he's killing his rubber chicken or stuffed duck.
I feel like I'm giving him too much attention when I sit there attempting to pry it out of his jaws. I can't really ignore him as I'd do when he bites inappropriately indoors as I need to keep an eye on him to see if he does his business. He's not very food or toy motivated - it'd be about a 50/50 shot (if you're lucky) to make him give it up for food if he has his little heart set on chewing the leash.
And I did promise piccies when I first joined and haven't gotten around to it yet, so here's the little chap:
