asked 2018-09-22 19:48:58 -0500

i own a pekingese dog i got him only from 3-4 weeks but i think there is something wrong with him. he is 2 months old and he always try to bite us i don't know why i thought maybe because he is afraid of us but that is not the point, when we try to feed him he eats and he let us carry him but dont let anybody else and when we leave him for awhile and come to pick him up , he seems so happy to see us. on the other hand when we leave him on the floor he try bite us and sometimes bite his tail and his body and everything he sees, and he also try to jump to reach us on the sofa to bite us. he also sometimes barks and get afraid when there is nothing infront of him and he doesnt sleep unless we are in the same room with him if we put him outside our room he will bark all night until we take him we went to a veterinary but he said there is nothing wrong with him so what is the wrong with my dog and why is he acting this way? and thanks in advance

Hi. Your puppy might actually be teething. Provide teething toys that keeps him entertained and most likely will also provide comfort during the process. You might also start correcting that behavior and reward with positive reinforcement

Sometimes a puppy is a puppy and sometimes they can be mean or aggressive. I recommend you seek a local dog trainer who will work with you and the dog to positively correct the dog. You will be happy if you do this.

Maybe taking to soon to learn not to bite. One way to help is to yelp or cry when he bites. Kinda what dogs do when they are hurt. Also teach him not to bite fingers or hand by feeding him his food by a flat hand and say take each time. So he learns he gets good things from the hands so he won't want to hurt them. Make sure it a flat hand so he doesn't accidentally nip fingers. may take a little while but soon he will understand not to bite. Another thing is get him check by vet. There is a weird seizure disorder where dog look like there attacking bugs out of the air.
