  1. Great advice about putting him on the washing machine as I found that when I washed and blow dried him the other day on the top of the machine he was fine with me brushing him there and using the hair dryer, come to brushing him in the lounge etc it was not going to happen, he kept trying to bite the brush like it was a game. I will persevere though and hopefully take control of that one, like you said it’s a life long thing he will have to get used to it. He has his first proper groom in a couple of weeks to get him used to going regularly. fingers crossed it’s not too traumatic for
  2. Thanks for everyone’s advice. I have found in the last week that the “time out” putting him in a separate play pen or my laundry/kitchen gated area, when he gets too cheeky and bitey is proving to be most effective for our little nipper. He is also starting to understand that if he does it we remove ourselves and stop playing with him. I also feel that he’s starting to have much more calm and relaxed time than what he was a week ago. Lots of patting with no nipping where as we couldn’t even really pat him without him going in for a good nip before. Lol! Fingers crossed i
  3. Thank you! Didn’t realise at the time there was a ‘puppy chat’ discussion when I posted on general. Lol!
  4. Thank you for your advice. I think your spot on with focusing on practising the good behaviours and possibly managing his environment more.
  5. I started training with him pretty much as soon as we got him. He has learnt to sit, shake, lay down and we are currently working on stay. He is highly intelligent and I’m finding he picks up things quickly, although when it comes to stopping the nipping at the moment he doesn’t seem to respond. He is very good on a lead, although I have not taken him outside of our yard as he only had his second vaccination last week and I was told by the vet to wait 7-10 days before taking him out for a walk in the neighbourhood, so I’ll be able to take him next week which will be great for him
  6. Thank you for all your advice. I will definitely check out the you tube video you posted. Much appreciated. He is enrolled in puppy school, we start next week so I’m sure they can also give me some more information also. This is our cheeky little devil. Lol!
  7. Thank you. I will try this and see if it improves.
  8. Thanks T. Ive had him fully vet checked and there seems to be no medical reason or soreness, I think it’s just something he does?
  9. Hi all, I was hoping someone could offer some advice on puppy biting and nipping. It has been some time since I’ve owned a puppy and don’t remember any of my previous dogs/puppies biting and nipping as much as my now almost 12 week old mini poodle pup. We have had him about 3 weeks and after a few days in, he settled in and he started biting and nipping everyone. Anyone that pats or plays with him is under attack! Lol! Now, I know puppies nip,chew and bite as they are teething but I feel he constantly bites and nips at everyone to the point of not being able to be

  11. Thanks for your advice. It sounds like the best thing to do is to ask the breeder and follow on with what they are feeding with. I agree with you that vets really only sell you what they stock not what may actually be better for your dog, I think the same goes for worming and flea products from the vet.
  12. Thanks for your advice. I’ll speak to the breeder and follow on with whatever they are feeding.
  13. Hi all, I’m so happy I’ll be bringing a mini poodle pup into our home in mid December. i just wanted to get some thoughts on puppy feeding since it’s been some time since I owned a pup. The breeder will supply me info with the puppy pack but just looking for thoughts on food companies that are good, raw feeding etc. Is it good to also include something like a goats milk or not for a couple of months while the pup is growing? How often and how much would you feed your pup? Dry food/wet food? Obviously I just want to do the best I can f
  14. I appreciate your advice and everyone else who has responded to my question, that’s exactly why I posted on here, to get honest answers from people that have either owned or know both breeds well like yourself. i believe there is a risk with any dog that you bring into your home but I feel I’ve done my research as best I can, not by just posting on here, but speaking with both breeders and owners and gaining a lot of different perspectives, also preparing my son for the possible arrival of a pup/dog too. Thanks for the advice about the small standard, definitely something to conside
