My little puppy (MalShi) always picks up stuff on the floor to eat.
I just got a little 2 month old MalShi and he always picks up things on the floor to eat. He always has something in his mouth from snooping around the house.
How do I get him to stop? Also, he bites/nips my fingers all the time. How do I get him to stop that too?
Any help will be appreciated.
All puppies think everything in edible, until they prove otherwise! It's perfectly normal, but of course can be dangerous as they have no idea about safety.
That's why puppy-proofing your home/yard is so essential. It's up to you to make sure your puppy doesn't have access to stuff that is either unsafe for him, or that you want to protect from his little teeth.
If you catch him chewing on something he shouldn't, always correct him with a firm "NO", and redirect his attention to his own chew toys. You can get lots more information about this on my Puppy Chewing page.
As for the nipping/biting - again perfectly normal puppy behavior, but one that needs to be stopped. Check out my Puppy Biting page for tips and info on this subject.
Best of luck with your puppy, he's a cutie!
