Q. How do we stop our 2 month old Shepard/retriever mix from biting?

Answered By

A. If puppy was too early separated from bith and siblings it can have problems with biting to strong. You should not let him allow to do this. show him that it hurts you, say firmly "no" and stop playing with him if he will bite you. Give him a toy that he will be allowed to bite and chew. If it won't help see a behaviourist.
