  • Yes, all puppies bite. Look into training your puppy. Say no firmly everytime the puppy bites. Try the dog whisperer. :)

  • All puppies bite... her teeth could be coming through which irritates the gums and they are just playful like that too. The best thing you can do is redirect her when she goes to bite on you guys by giving her a chew toy or something that she is allowed to chew on.

  • All puppies need to chew, but not necessarily on people. At that age they don't really realize they are doing anything wrong. Make sure they have chew toys/bones always available. Remove them from whomever's leg they are attached to, tell them no and immediately give them an acceptable replacement, they will learn quickly.
