I have an 8wk old puppy that was a surprise from my husband on New Years Eve. I am working on house breaking her, but she is so hyper that we are no longer able to pet or cuddle with her without her chewing on us which we do not want since it hurts and is a bad habit all in all. I have tried taking her on walks, but she is so little she does not know how too yet, and with the temp in the teens she usually refuses to do anything but potty and go back inside. She has a ton of toys that she plays with, but she still prefers to either attack our feet/ankles, or chew on us when we spend time with her. Ideas would be greatly appreciated, I am getting really tired of it. She is a beagleAnswer Question
Maybe try some healthy chewys? And when she starts chewing on you, hold the chewy for her to chew on...3m makes some really good one and are easily digestible, Also Iams. But I wouldn't let her have more than one a day, easily digestible or not.
She's very young, so you can get past this. We had a beagle that we got when he was about 5 - he ate our house, and pissed off every neighbor in a 5 mile radius..

My rottie pup was doing the same ,i would take and lightly put my hand on mouth and say "NO BITE" and would quit playing with her.I encouraged all that if they played with her not to use hands but toys. now she is as gentle as a lamb. She wont even bite my Kitten that annoys her on a normal basis. lol
