Hi all, I'm new here and to owning a basset hound. I have a 15 week old basset (Hickory), who I got at 9 weeks old. Anyway, he is remarkably good with house and crate training, but he bites so much when he plays. It is never fear or anger biting, but just playing. However, sometimes he gets really excited and bites pretty hard. I have tried all the tricks from yelping to walking away to yelling. Walking away is rough because he then jumps up and starts biting at my pants, and has already ripped a few of them on the bottom. After talking to multiple people, they say that I should just be patient and he will eventually grow out of it. I was just wondering if anybody else has had similar experiences with basset pups and could help reassure me that this terrible habit will fade. P.S. The only thing that really gets his attention to stop is shaking a tin can full of change, but even then he eventually goes back to it.
