Our little Boston is 7 mo. Old. Gus keeps biting at our hands, feet, all the time! Will he ever quit?
We love him dearly but it hurts!
Hi Dennis Biting and nipping is a very normal puppy behavior, and all puppies do it. But at 7 1/2 months old, Gus should have learned not to do this by now.
I think you're going to need to be firmer in your corrections - and if you're not always consistent, improve on that too. Take a look at my Puppy Biting page for all the tips and advice you need to put an end to this.
Puppies do tend to 'grow out' of the worst of this habit as they mature, but if they're not shown firmly and without-doubt that it's NOT okay, they can continue to do it into adulthood.... and as you say, at that point it really hurts!
Be patient, consistent, loving but firm, and he'll soon get the idea. Best of luck.
