Barking and Biting issues
Barking and Biting issues with my yorkie toy new puppy shes is now going on almost 10 weeks. I know that she is really young so I do not yell or scream at here at all other then from screams of pain at times lol. If someone can give me some advice on how to make my baby a little more comfortable in the sense of helping her not bite so much anymore that would be a God send. Thanks in advance.

We have all been through this!!! when she bites you, you need to holler ouch or no bite really loud & hopefully she'll get the point. It took a long time for my little girl to stop doing this, she has been very spoiled- but they do stop it!!! congrats on your new baby & welcome to yt there is alot of great advice to receive here.

Loud voices are scarry to them that is forsure
My littlest one is going through the biting stage. They need to chew, dental chews will help, the dog toys that are ropes with knots in them are great to help.
I often grab her mouth when they try to bit me and say no sternly and as I have a hold of their mouths then they can't bite, and they are trying to pull away. I try to do this gently but with enough force they can't get away until they know the behavior is an unwanted one.

I am also currently going through this. What I've found is that when I take Sylar out to go potty after he's done I run around the yard with him. We run back and forth and then he's too tired to be energetic. I just did that today actually and it works. I also just got a spray bottle so I can squirt water on him when he's being a bad boy.
