    I know this might sound a bit of a daft question but you know when a grown dog bites you, you can sometimes contract deseases off them I think etc :s. Well my little 10 and half week puppy bit me and brought blood will I be fine or will it need to be checked by a doctor, she doesnt have any illnesses or anything. thanks.

    The only thing you need to be worried about is infection. So make sure you keep the wound clean and dry.

    Oh, and teach your puppy that human limbs and skin, are not toys ;)

    Everytime she goes to bite you, try and deflect her attention onto a toy. If she does get you, give a loud and sharp "ow" or something similar.

    If you go into the training section, theres a sticky at the top explaining how to deal with a nipping puppy. The earlier you teach bite inhibition the better.
