Mossimo is still biting like a mad man. He gets in his play frenzies and latches on to my hands or pounces on my feet. It really hurts. I'm waiting for his teeth to get stuck in my skin. The bitter apple spray worked for maybe a day or so, but nothing seems to be getting the message across.

You have to keep reapplying the bitter apple. When he bites you, replace "you" with a bully stick. They love them and it satisfies some of that teething pain. A wet facecloth rolled up and put in the freezer helps too. If he doesn't listen at all, sometimes its time for a time out. Put him in his pen and let him get out of that frenzie mood. Remember to reward for good behaviour, when he chooses the bully stick over you

When Quincy would do that "frenzy" thing, biting my hands, lunging at me, and pulling on my shirt, I found that it was his way of telling me he had to go out. This was in the beginning when I was still trying to interpret his "signals." He now comes to me and whines or rings the bells, but in the beginning, it was hard to figure out. After a few times of his getting that way, I finally got a clue and started taking him out on his leash to do his business. More often than not, he had to poop and would go as soon as we got outside.
This may not be true for you if he is using pads. Q is trained for outside and never really used the pads after we got him home from the breeder.

Ditto, Ted still nips at me if he has to go poop. Usually I have not paid attention to his other signals like: bringing me his leash, ringing bells or sitting in front of me barking!

I noticed Bama seemed to be licking or chewing something so I got it out of her mouth thinking she found something she shouldn't have (she is like a magician pulling things out of thin air) and it was a tooth that had just come out. Fresh blood nod everything. I found two teeth on the floor once I started looking for them. Today one of her big fangs (whatever the proper term I'm not sure) came out. Poor thing, but she doesn't seem to be in pain. Just takes longer to chew hard tiny star treats.

Is there a doggy tooth fairy? ;-)

Ted has been getting his food wet since the teeting has started. He wont eat the hard kibble. I break up Yeds hard treats into little tiny pieces for him to eat. I have quite the little collection of teeth from him.

I have the same biting problem with my 3 month old, Precís. Any particular brand of bully sticks that you recommend?
