Question by crytle: How can I break my basset puppy of biting?
I have an 8 month old basset hound puppy who is STUBBURN and definitely not like any other bassets. He is super active and rarely likes to be lazy! We took him to obedience school, but he didn’t learn one single thing. Even if he’s just laying on the couch, my arm has to be in his mouth. It’s seriously non-stop, he won’t quit biting. Do any other basset owners have any HELPFUL suggestions?
Also, my basset pup LOVES water. I’ve tried the spray bottle approach and he absolutely loves it…he jumps up and starts barking at the spray bottle while licking the water. I’ve also tried that sour apple spray stuff, yea he LOVES that stuff too.
When I try the newspaper across the nose approach, he again thinks I’m playing so he grabs the newspape. It’s funny but at the same time frustrating.

I own a jack russell and he bite all the time. dogs hate water sprayed in their face… keep a lil spray bottle full of water near u and when they do that spray it in their face… it should stop within 3 days. GOOD LUCK!!
