Aggressive biting and barking
I need some advice, even after reading the threads in the forums here. Lilly is 10 weeks old. She checked out perfectly by the vet. We love her more than anything.
I know puppies bite due to teething, but she bites everything all of the time. Fingers, toes, pant legs, shoe laces, shirts, boxes, papers, rugs, curtains, chairs, table legs, handles on the furniture, etc, etc, etc. We say "no" and move her back but she lunges and jumps get very aggressive. She play with her toys and we play with her. She is not cuddly or affectionate no matter what we do. The only time she stops biting and barking is when she is too tired and falls asleep. We tried Bitter No Chew but she likes it.
We used to watch our daughters's 2-1/2 year old Hav, Cleo, but now Lilly thinks she is a chew toy too. Cleo bore her teeth to Lilly the other day and it really scared me, so Cleo doesn't come over anymore.
I just need someone to tell me this is normal and that she will grow out of this. I had a Shepard growing up and he wasn't this aggressive.
