Food is the great motivator when it comes to training puppies, and even if your Chow Chow really wants to nibble on you, she will find restraint when presented with actual yummy food. Make sure you have plenty of good treats available, but be careful that you balance nutrients for your puppy's rapidly growing body.
Be keeps biting his hind quarter sometimes both sides this has only happened since he starting to shed his puppy fur but hes pulling at it
Hello Steve, If he is used to being handled try parting the fur and see if there is a hot spot (red or inflamed area) or if his fur is tangled there (somethings knots will form and pull and be uncomfortable while shedding). If there is inflammation and redness, then a trip to your vet is needed to see if there is a fungal or bacterial infection or simply buy medicated shampoo - I am not a vet so your vet can evaluate. If there is a knot, then a trip to the groomers is needed or you can try to carefully get the knots and extra fur bunched up out yourself. If it is irritated he may need to wear a cone for a bit while it heals to keep him from biting at it and making it worse. If he is not on flea or tick medication, then check for fleas or ticks. Fleas will also leave little black dots smaller than grains of sand behind - You can wet a white paper towel and rub it over a furless area like his belly and see if you pick up any black dots - when the dots get wet they will typically turn red-ish if it's from fleas - it is the digested blood that they eat dried. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden
