baby loves her ex pen

When Shama was little, she loved to lie in the alley between her crate and the outside wall of her ex pen. We talked about how sad it would be when she outgrew the space. Well now she's almost two, and she still fits there. Tonight, when she could have lounged anywhere in the house (in the office with me, in the living room with DH, or wherever), she opted to lie in the alley of her ex pen. It's so cute. (Pupperton pen measures 6x2 feet. We have it tucked under our kitchen island. She sleeps there every night and spends nine hours a day there while we are at work during the school year. A dog walker comes to visit her midday.)

And the sixth photo. Couldn't upload it as we're limited to five photos at a time.

She's so cute, looks alot like my Bella, she is almost 4 months old. I am very excited about having her, I am train her now, but have forgotten alot about puppy training. She has some stubbornness at times, but overall is a very good puppy.

Puppies (and dogs) really are not stubborn. They do the best they can with what they know, under those conditions. If the puppy isn't doing what you want, you need to explain it more clearly in your training, rewarding even small steps in the right direction. What you perceive as "stubbornness" is just being an untrained puppy.

I have heard that dogs werlike that, but I have no idea why she is doing some of this stuff, she keeps biting on her leash, even if I keep it short, , I give her treats when she does things I want her to do, but I really don't have a clue if I am giving her too many? She also stops walking and pulls back on the leash if she doesn't want to go where I am taking her. Should I just pick her up and take her in when she does it? I try saying come Bella, and sometimes she will and when she doesnt, I just bring hermin. Help!

It sounds to me like she doesn't yet understand how to walk properly on leash. They don't come pre-programmed to understand that! And at her age, it's very unlikely that she truly understands "come" either. This is absolutely normal puppy behavior. She just doesn't know yet. It sounds to me like you need to get her in some classes to help you learn how to teach her better!
