Hi all,

I’m used to having dogs dogs but I haven’t had a Bassett or a puppy before(we have always rescued older dogs). When my Bassett, Bunty, gets overtired she can’t settle herself. If out of the crate she bites but when in her crate she howls incessantly. Normally she loves crate and is brilliant when not over tired, when when she is I can’t seem to help her get calm. I assuming the biting is normal for a puppy but I don’t want it to continue into adulthood.

Any thoughts appreciated on how to stop the biting or help her to get calm.


Thanks

chewy/biting is normal puppy behavior not sure what the actual issue is why not just provide her an appropriate toy she can chew and bite on.

Hi Mike, she has lots! I’m asking if anybody has any tips for me on helping her to calm
down and rest when she’s tired. Most of the time she loves her crate but when she’s tired she howls incessantly if we put her in and if she comes out she bites anything but her chew toys. It’s more about me helping her than it being about the biting/howling. Thanks
