Hi, I'm Jacoby. If your dog is younger than six months, this is normal. He is teething, and the biting brings relief from the pain. I'd buy a couple of chew toys for him, so he can bite that instead of your hand. If he is older than six months, you will need to show him that behavior is not appropriate. Every time he does it, show him you don't like it. He will get the picture eventually. Thanks.
thankyou and yes he is only 9 weeks. thankyou so much! where off to get some chew toys today, and ill have to see what happens. - - 9 years ago
