Duncan is getting out of control-please help!
Duncan has become quite the nipper,but mostly with me.What happened to not biting the hand that feeds you?
He seems to wake up in the am with a burst of energy,but unfortunately I have the kids to get ready for school and can't play with him so he is constantly underfoot,looking for attention by nipping at my ankles,shins,and knees.Well,today he got me good and with a firm NO! he ran away whimpering,bu 5 minutes later he is back for more!!
He will not do this to my hubby,since hubby has already established that he is the alpha male.
I understand that this is playful puppy behavior,but any suggestions as to how to "nip"this in the bud? I think me and/or hubby need to get up a little earlier and take him outside for a little run so he can expend some energy!
Duncan will also do this once the kids are in school and I'm home just to get attention.I have tried replacing me with his chew toys and he wants no part of them.The water bottle doesn't phase him in the least!
