Hi! This is my first foray onto this website and how reassuring to see other people have lunging and biting issues with puppies but haven't found anyone having it so young as 11 weeks!! I have a black male lab pup and he is drawing blood almost every time he bites. Usually this is just random, he can be playing happily with a toy across the room and then just launches himself at me, he also does it when the phone rings, if I eat or read something so I guess its attention seeking? My husband works long hours so mainly he's at home from lunch time onwards with me (I have no kids) but he still does this to my husband too when he gets home. I am a really patient person and calm so its not like he's picking up bad vibes. However I am worried about inviting friends and family round to see him as he went for my Mum last week and my nieces are now quite frightened of him. My vet doesn't agree with puppy parties and neither does the breeder but is he too young for obedience classes and would they help? It is true, this behaviour day after day and bite after bite does get you down but how long til things settle down? 12mths?
