Biting
by: Donna

You can't. If you acquired your Pyr from a registered breeder (recognized kennel club), talk to that breeder.

If you acquired your dog from a backyard breeder or farmer, it sounds like your dog did not have the crucial socialization by many many different people in their first 13 weeks of life.

They must be with their moms for 8 weeks in puppyhood. They learn so much from their moms including no biting.

You can have a vet behavourist assess your dog or have a positive-reinforcement trainer in to assess your dog to give you an evaluation.

However, from our experience and consulting with vet behaviourists, these dogs cannot be safely rehabilitated.

They missed that crucial socialization. It's so very sad since it's not the dog's fault.
