13 week old and biting uncontrollably
My Husband and I are first time V and puppy owners, and we obviously have so much to learn. We have done a ton of research before and now. But with this I am now at a loss.
Our adorable and smart 13 week old has been doing all the normal Vizsla things like sharkies, zoomies, picky eater, able to learn just about any command I throw at her, etc.
But just starting last week, her "sharkies" have become terrible. She will not stop for nothing. I could have a high value treat in my hand, and she does not care about anything else besides my hands, legs, clothes, anything on me. The other issue is that she has not been doing this with my husband only me. She does get the normal sharkies with him, but not this obsession with biting like she does with me.
We have been doing bite inhibition since day one with really no luck. It only eggs her on more. If I turn around and ignore her or walk away she begins biting my bum. If I put her in time out (not in her crate) she seems to get more roweled up and once taken out (because she was sitting nicely for a little bit) she attacks at full force.
The only thing that we have not tried yet is spraying water.
I am worried at this point that this will never end, and she has a sense of dominance over me. Is this something that will just stop one day, and it never really mattered what we did or did not do through this time, or is this something that could continue into adulthood.
Like I said I understand that sharkies are something all V's go through, but what she is doing now, is not what I considered sharkies, and more like an attempt to establish dominance.
Please share your experience, and how you overcame this not so fun stage of their beautiful lives.
