American Eskimo Dog Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/26/2005
It seems my dog has a mean streak in her at the age of 9 weeks, she is a shelty-american eskimo mix do you have any ideas how I can work with this or a way to make it go away? Pam Coledo

3/17/07 All puppies need to learn appropriate play behavior. She doesn't have a mean streak, she just needs lessons. Redirection works great at this age. Tell her no bite and give her something she can chew on. She will need lots of teething toys and oppurtunities to chew. Dolly as an older puppy liked to try and mouth at our hands when she wanted attention. Ignoring her and walking away made the behavior go away. Your puppy just needs you to teach her what is ok play behavior. Diane
