new schnauzer mom has questions
(Bay City, MI)
What a marvelous site! Thank you!
We have an 11-week-old Mini Schnauzer, salt and pepper, whose name is Maggie. We got her when she was 8 weeks old. She came to us trained very well to a kennel and sleeps well with no whining. She came with parvo vac. only and had her first round of core puppy shots on 1/9/12. I will be taking her to puppy class beginning Feb. 6, because she will have had the second round by then. Questions:
1) Biting - When she is wound up a bit and excited, she bites at hands, clothing, hair--whatever is within the reach of her mouth. She seems to lose self-control. We tell her No Bite. I know she must not bite flesh of any kind. Can you give me hints on how to accomplish that?
2) My 8-year-old grandson loves to play with her, but he is very rambunctious and physical. He is a boy and plays that way. Will this type of playing cause her to be hyper and/or aggressive?
I have many questions, but will search your site for answers.
Thank you so very much!!!
