hi!

Hi, my name is Emi and I just got my very first puppy last month.


Teemo is very devious and aggressive at times. I didn't know Havanese can be this aggressive. He also get mad at me when I yell at him for being bad (biting)

welcome , what a cutie. Never yell at your dog. It will only make things worse. Is this your first dog? Nipping is very normal for pups, here's some remedies. http://www.clickertraining.com/node/3249

He is my first dog. I read alot of books but still not quite sure what to do. He only bites our family but not our friends/strangers. He also throws tantrums. My friend said it might be cause we're feeding him chicken with puppy food that makes him aggressive, not sure how true this is I'll try your suggestion and stop with the yelling let's see how it goes. He seems to only do this once/twice a day.

it's not the specific food that is making him over the top, it could be how your giving it. here's some reading After You Get Your Puppy by Ian Dunbar http://www.dogstardaily.com/files/do...Your_Puppy.pdf

Welcome Emi & Teemo! Please look for other threads about puppy biting. We've all been through it.
To be be brief, replace your hand, arm, leg, etc with something she can bite -- ignore her (meaning, move away from her and don't show her any attention, turn your back, etc). What I found most helpful -- when Beau wouldn't stop, I'd just pick him up, say "no", and put him in his crate. He would settle down in a few minutes. Sometimes he'd fall right to sleep. Other times, he'd get real quiet. [At first I'd leave him the crate 20 to 30 minutes and ignore him. After a while, he'd only need a few minutes of "time out."] Then, I'd take him out of the crate and hold him for a bit -- to reinforce the better behavior. Don't yell, it just makes them more excitable. It IS a phase -- but help her to get through it learning something!
