my puppy got his paw stuck in the dog guard and was yelping when i tried to get his paw out he bit me really badly.
What can i do to prevent this happening in the future?
I'm not exactly sure what dog guard it was your pup got caught up in, but with any kind of fencing/barrier etc. this is a possibility.
Your puppy was hurting and scared, and his natural reaction was to bite at you because your efforts to help him were probably hurting him too and he wouldn't understand that it was for his own good.
Really, this is a normal behavior and the only thing you could do is to have someone help you next time - providing of course there is someone else there!
The best thing is to try to figure out how your pup got tangled and find a way to avoid it happening again if possible.
Sorry I can't be of more help here, but hopefully this won't happen again.
