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.
