I can't walk normally while my small Rottie is around
I just want to thank you so much for you precious help... you've been so helpful
My little Cesar is always biting my feet, while I am walking. He is always concerned about my toes.. when I say No it lasts for only seconds, then the same story is going on one more time if I am lucky, it is gonna be with the other foot!!!
thanks a lot.
Cesar is so adorable, what a face!
What you're describing is absolutely normal puppy behavior, but it's definitely annoying and needs to be stopped.
Telling him 'No bite' is the first step, but if he won't stop then you need to take it a little further.
You can try getting hold of the loose skin of the back of his neck and giving him a firm, but gentle, shake as you tell him 'No bite'. This is the way the momma dog would correct bad behavior, and he will understand it.
You will need to be very consistent about correcting him, and use the same method each time. If after a week or so, the shake doesn't help, I'd recommend getting a small plastic water-spray bottle and using that as a deterrent.
You simply fill it with water, set the nozzle to 'stream or jet' and when he starts biting your feet you tell him 'No bite' and give him a quick shot of water on the muzzle. Try not to get it in his eyes, or up his nose though.
This is usually a surprise to the pup and he won't like it too much, so if you're consistent in correcting him he will soon decide that it's not something he wants to do anymore.
Glad I could help up until now, hope these tips help too. Best of luck with Cesar.
