Default Joey is wild!!!!

Over the last couple of days our joey has got wild, he is chewing a lot which is probably normal for a pup but he also nipping my arms. He thinks he is playing but it hurts so when I tell him off he just barks at me in a howling kind of manor. He's very VERY stubborn. But also too cute lol.
How do I tell him off without him arguing back????
I have extremely long hair also and every opportunity he will swing from my ponytail :/ xxx

When he starts nipping, tell him no, and then remove yourself for a few minutes...make sure to go back and when he plays nicely, give treat and praise...when he starts nipping again, repeat the process. Know exactly what you're going through...It takes time...be consistent....they do outgrow it but know it's no fun for you....if you can yelp like a pup who is hurt when he bites, should help....just keep doing it over and over.

He's 9 and half week old. I refer to my slippers as feet protectors. I think he may be getting a little bored of the house and garden. He has his second jab next week so it will be good to get him out for walks. Hope he calms down.
As for buying a helmet, you maybe right haha xxx

Typical puppy the way I work it is as soon as the puppy has teeth you have to react to them mouthing I start with the scruff a little pull and NO he will probably come back at you, repeat.There are those on this board that do not agree with the way I do it but it works for me.When they get a bit older you can give a little pinch ,it gets their attention and you can divert from your extremities.I'm not condoning hurting the puppy but a little pressure on the skin between your fingers is not going to hurt him and doesn't cause pain, just pressure.Some grow out of it some grow in to in so you have be consistant.

I am going thru much of the same with Ellie right now. In fact, as I type she is bouncing off the walls and harassing poor old Jake.

when I got her 3 wks ago she was shredding my arms with her nipping. I have been taking the advice of "yipping" and removing myself. I have also found when particularly hyper I will give her a raw hide (I make sure it never gets small where it can be a problem.. but it is a good substitute for my wrists!). She has gotten much better, although, when she is really wound up, she forgets.

Oh, and the pony tail! what a great chew toy!!!! I have woken up a few time with her playing with it. I am convinced one morning I will wake up with it laying next to me on the pillow. to discourage that, I have one of those cotton rope-twist chews which Ellie accepts as a substitute.

good luck!

One you need to teach a puppy self control that mean ratcheting the play down or ending it before he gets to the point he loses his mind
