My puppy, Ringo, goes for my trousers, and I've read in a million books that this, and all the nipping and mouthing etc is normal, and I've been squealing like a puppy when it happens and saying no... It's not improving, but it's only been a few weeks and this sounds like a long problem. I just have a couple of other questions. He goes for my trouser legs at some point, daily. Sometimes when I'm standing still and sometimes when I'm walking along. All my books and on here say that it's normal, and to say "NO!" or squeal like a puppy and turn away and stand still, no eye contact. Just want to check that it's ok to leave him growling and attached to my trousers whilst I do this!! A couple of times, I tried to get him off them and he managed to draw blood by getting me mixed up with my trousers, but if I stand still he still carries on fighting my trouser legs! Is this just normal play biting still? Is this the right thing to do? Should I try and distract him with a toy and praise him when he lets go of the trousers? He doesn't go for my boyfriends trousers as much...but I think mine are baggier at the bottom...or maybe I look like an easy target!! Help!! Naomi xx PS: I know I could just wear skirts ... :lol:g.
