bubo lost his first tooth (as far as we know) last night. it worried us at first. then i thought it’s probably just like humans, puppies lose their baby teeth to be replaced by adult teeth. so i look it up online and it is true. comes to think of it, bubo really has strong teeth. one of his small bites was sufficient to make his daddy’s ear bleed profusely. we are trying hard to train him not to bite. but teething puppies love to chew because of the irritation of their gum. i was searching for some tips on how to train puppy not to bite. this caught my attention. we’ve already been doing most of its suggestions but i did not know this:
Puppies use the “arp” with each other to tell each other “enough, you’re chewing too hard.” It is very effective to teach pups in their own language. If you watch puppies at play, you will hear that sound often. It is more effective than a verbal command such as “no” that pups do not yet understand. The “arp” sound is also effective for adult dogs.
