Customer Question
experienced this issue. Our dog...
We have had dogs all our lives and have never ever experienced this issue. Our dog is 2 months old now and is getting worse every day with his biting. He gets plenty of attention and when we go out we put him in a crate. We try to keep him out at night but it is impossible. As the night goes on he gets more and more aggressive and biting and jumping is uncontrollable. I've tried calming aids even a pet friendly muzzle. Last night was the worst. It took 3 of us to finally get him in his crate and it was a struggle. We do not know what to do. He does not calm down the longer he is out of the crate during the day or night he gets worse. We cannot afford a behavorial specialist. We just don't know what to do.

Thanks for your question. Can you answer some additional questions for me?

1) Did I understand correctly that the dog is 8 weeks of age?
2) Has he had any formal training? If so, what commands have been worked on?
3) How is his potty training coming along?
4) What method of exercise is being used for him and how long each day?
5) What breed is your puppy?
6) What is his name?
7) How long have you had him?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
