Is all this growling and biting okay?
Bella is 10 weeks now, we have had her for 2 weeks.
For 2 days she has been growling like crazy and biting. Not the puppy biting she was doing when we held her before, but growling like she's mad and lunging. She does this alot during the day and sometimes even when I take her out of her ex pen to play. I don't take her out until she comes to the edge of the pen, tail wagging and then she might play for a minute or two before she starts growling, biting my feet, pants legs, etc. When I go to pick her up to put her back in the pen (from all the advice from previous posts here) she growls and lunges. Even in her pen alone she has been growling and biting hard on her toys.
Other times when I try to pet her, she backs away from me. She had been coming when called a few days ago and now she just stares at me ready to lunge or just slowly backs away.
I've tried different things I read here but nothing is really working. Is this just a puppy thing that has to resolve itself or do I have an agressive puppy girl on my hands?
