well, to chiwi i am just a cuddler. she doesn't play with me, she plays with everyone else but not with me, if i try she bites my hands instead of the toy. and i have seen her play with other people and she don't do that to them. then before bed i will go to pet her and she bites me and doesn't want to be pet until she is all settled down, like 10 minutes later. she will inch closer and closer and whine until i pet her. but it's like it's on her terms. she is a very active little girl and is on the move with her toys until i try then she stops and runs up to her bed and looks at me. so i follow her and she lays down and cuddles up to me. she is still trying to teeth on fingers too, and i haven't been able to get that under control....then there are issues with the opposite m/f. if you are a guy ad you try to touch me look out, this 1.13 pound 4 month old puppy becomes pit bull girl! she is fine with strangers, loves everyone so much but god forbid if you touch her mommy. i had a male friend over the other night and he was sitting down and i was at the tv trying to figure it out and chiwi just started barking at him for no reason! she hid between my 2 feet and was barking and growling, but 5 minutes before she was laying in his lap getting loved on. and he didn't even try to touch me so i don't know what was up with that....
Sounds like there are several issues, one of them being alpha.....but then in some respects she acts like she is ok with your being alpha...maybe its part puppy push your button syndrome? Have you done any training with her yet? Kemo can let people pet him one minute and i get all excited then he nips them the next :roll: these dogs are forever a puzzle...

chiwi has a short attention span. i have taught her to sit but that is pretty much it. she isn't into treats so it's finding a way to get her to do things... postitive reinforcement only goes so far with her. i was going to take her to puppy classes but i have to wait til i get another job before i go spending money.....

I have come to the conclusion that all dogs are just like all kids.. you never know what they will do next... hehehhehe

I like the idea of the spray freezing the poop.... I thought you were talking about the snow freezing the poop... hehehehhe

I need to get me a pooper scooper.. but I am not worried about it right now for Gadget has just learned to pee outside... boy I wish he wouldn't pee on my rug tho.... Even tho it is outside it is still a rug.... that little brat... hehehehhehe

Luv, Does Chiwi wear a harness? Like when she is not on the leash.... That is how I got Gadget to like his. I just put it on him in the mornings and leave it on all day... unless I am not here to watch him then I take it off.. the neck is as small as it goes and still too big. so we don't want him to get stuck some where.

He loves his collar too..

:scratch: I was talking about the snow freezing other dogs poop and raccoon poop and that is why I was worried about all the dormant bacteria on the ground that with thawing is coming alive..hence my doggies needed protection before I could truly enjoy walking them for hours... :wink:

:wink: Stuff for freezing poop, :D never heard of it :D wouldn't get it..I probably missed something along the thread, tho..lol :D

Your not walking him outside are you ? because at 8 weeks he wont have had his full innoculations and even then you have to wait for 2 weeks after he has been innoculated to take him out walking :?

anywhere you set your chi down outside is potential danger. you dont' know waht animal left what behind.

i put chiw's harnesses on her and they were a tad too big on her but they are only to get her accustomed to them INSIDE the house for when she got fully vaccinated then by that time she was pretty much fitting into them to be walked outside.. fully vaccinated.

Nattie, even if only healthy dogs walk in your area, they can still be carriers of airborne diseases like bordatella, parainfluenza, or distemper and pass it on to your chi if it hasn't been adequately protected. Please listen to the advice you get on the boards, everyone on here genuinely cares about you and your dog and are offering their advice to help you. If you want to be the best possible owner for your dog, don't put it at risk.

if 16 weeks is when he has his last set of vaccines, you should wait 1 week until after this so that the vaccine has had time to build up immunity in the body. so, if you are vaccinating at 16 weeks, 17 weeks is when you should be okay to let him down and interact with other dogs. Thanks for listening to us =)
