Hey Melanie,Ozzie and GG are now 11 months old...such a pleasure...so soft and such good pups...I am so happy I got 2....they nip my husband but not me. I did buy a Himalayan Treat for each one just recently. They love it. The only problem I have is they love to dig. How can I solve this issue or is it just the nature of a puppy/dogContinue

I switched Poppleton to canned food and now he has tear stains. He had been on kibble his whole life (all two years) and was never a great eater. He loves the canned and I hate to switch him back. Continue

I remember talking to Melanie about this because I was pretty concerned with her intensity. Repeatedly, repeatedly, repeatedly when she would bit us we told her in a harsh deep tone "No Bite!". Immediately she would respond by dropping her head away from us... then start up again. Early on she would start right up again and we would say "No Bite!" Often we would add a toy in between her and our hand- distracting her like a human baby.Part of her motivation, like all dogs and babies was teething. She was mouthy because of that too. But now in hindsight I think there was more going on.Doggie babies are pretty complex and there seemed to be something intense motivating Beignet's biting case. - I think her spaniel heritage makes her very mouth oriented and mouth expressive, more so than the two other breeds I have had (German Shepards and a Newfoundland).…Continue
