New pup chews and bites
I have a 5 month old Yorkie and he still bites a lot. He pulls trousers and chews anything I am wearing.When I pick him up or he sits with me, he starts chewing my fingers, but when I hide my fingers;he starts searching for them. He becomes so restless when he sees my hands.
He is very very friendly dog and my little darling. He was 3 month old when I got him. The previous owner said that he is fully trained. He is toilet trained and when you throw a ball, he brings it back. But this chewing thing is not going away.

S/l he is really teething. I always told mine "no bite" & gave them something immediately that is okay for them to chew. Find what he likes, buy him several different items & I believe this will help immensely.

I had that constant biting from my female yorkie and pulling my capris or jeans all the time first it was cut but the it irritated me. I took her to obedience school T pet smart and she learn a lot cause I was at my wits end, I kept telling her no biting and the pants I said leave it they eventually will get it even when she wanted to play rough with biting I will always say no don't bite mommy no bitting she would let up doing it softer, she is 1 1/2 and does do it only she. She want to play but it's much better. Girlies are stubborn little dogs. In the mean time have fun they love to play.

It absolutely killed me to give up my routine with chewie before her bone each morning by the nibbling on my fingers. It fixed a lot of her guarding issues, though. Giving her an old shirt of mine to mouth on helped out a lot.

I've had other dogs before our Bailey entered our lives 5 years ago. The Border Collie/Belgian Shepherd I used to have loved teething on a large weight bar. I would think this might be over kill for a Yorkie though. We were lucky with Bailey. Having said that I took a sock and put a knot on it and he would bite that and we played a pulling toy. I was hopeful this would stop him from taking other socks (of ours) and it worked. He still likes to play this game with his own knotted sock. As well, I use a very thick leather glove and he can bite it as hard as he likes, w/out any feeling of pain on my end. These have all worked well. Hope that you find that something that will work for you. Any updates?
