Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hello, I just got my husky a little over a week ago he is 8 weeks old as of sunday and I am beginning to get concerned with his biting habits...he wont stop. I cannot play with him without him biting my toes, legs, hands, and arms. he always draws blood everytime he bites and sometimes growls if I try to pull my arm away. I tried yelping like a puppy and trying to redirect his attention to toys but he doesn't care. Its really frustrating because I want to play with him but I don't know how to get him to stop. Should I just enroll him in puppy classes and see if that helps? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

This is the reason why puppies should stay with their mom and littermates until 8-10 weeks old. They learn bite inhibtion at that age from their siblings. If they were to bite their siblings they would yelp and remove themselves. He's just being a puppy that was taken away to early. You can try spraying bitter spray on yourself so he won't like the taste. Otherwise the yelling, or a stern no and then removing yourself from playing with him should stop it pretty quickly.
