Question Help!!

Hi I just purchased a Havanese from a reputable breeder and she was adorable for the first week we took her home. She was going on the paper, very loving and affectionate, and not biting. Now she has turned into a monster! She is not using the paper even though I give her treats every time and praise her, I also take her outside and treat her and praise her. She now wants to be left alone and sleep on the couch by herself! Even though I pick her up and try to cuddle with her. She is 3.5 months old and has turned into a biting machine. to the point that there are marks on our skin. We have tried giving her another toy to distract her, tell her NO and push her away to no avail. We have even then put her in the crate for a time out and it has not worked. I know that these puppies are very sensitive so we are treating her with kit gloves and don't want to ruin her but we are losing at training her. What should we do. She will pee on the paper and I will give her a treat and then 15 minutes later she will be on the furniture and pee again! I have used the cleaners that take the smell away but she is still doing it in places that are totally inappropriate. I have never had this problem with a puppy before. What is going on? Can anyone help me? Missy is absolutely adorable and we love her.

Not exactly sure. I would contact the breeder as well as take her to the vet to rule out and thing medical. Best of luck and keep us posted.

I think you will find some help here. Check out the web site above. I doubt there is anything wrong. Most of us go through this.

If this came on suddenly,I would get her checked out at the vets,as she may be in pain or have a urine infection,hence the peeing on something soft,also it might hurt when you pick her up if her bladder is full.

It sounds like she might have a urinary track infection/bladder infection like Clare mentioned. My little guy had one and I tried everything like you're doing and they can't help it - if that's it. They are just learning where to go and the feelings that you feel when you have to go and WHAM a stupid infection takes that all away. But, don't worry. If that's what it is the antibiotic starts working withing 3 or 4 days and by 6 days my little guy was doing good again. But, I thought I had failed. It's tough. Hang in there. Defiantly have your vet check her. Also, your being upset about it also upsets her. Its a vicious cycle. But one that will be ok soon.
