German Shepherd puppy is biting - aggressive?
I have a 14 week old male German Shepherd. I also have 2 Yorkies. The older Yorkie absolutely ignores the Shepherd. The younger and much smaller Yorkie refuses to leave the kitchen, which is large and the center of our house, and is essentially where the Shepherd stays.
I do have trouble with the Shepherd biting but his behavior towards the Yorkie tends to be getting rougher or more aggressive. I have tried leaving him alone in the kitchen, removing the Yorkie and yelling "ouch". He seems to grow bolder.
Otherwise, he is learning quickly and is very sweet but biting or gnawing is always an issue. I am afraid he is becoming aggressive, yet, it does also appear to be puppy behavior.
I have him in training. They also offer puppy play time, which he loves. The play time seems rather rough to me but all of the puppies seem happy. I wonder if this could make him more aggressive.
Thank you, P. C. Egan
