Hi Karen, Get that growling under control soon. I have beenknown to spray my hands / arms with bitter apple, hopefully yours doesn't like the taste. My pups are 6 weeks and I did the scruff shake and finally the roll with the female. She was growling and snarling at the boy who was in my lap. I normally don't believe in that but I can't have her coming up the lead at me during training later on. Is she German or American bloodlines? I also let them gnaw on RAW bones, never cooked or those hard baked splintery things from the store, for a pup a rib bone works great.
After a while a loud OUCH or something along with a correction and hopefully she witt get the idea. Nyla bones are good too, I like the flavored ones for the dogs. How about a squeaky toy to divert her attention? She will outgrow it but it hurts, you shouild see my arms and hands................... Feel free to email me any time!!
