Default What does this mean?

Hi everyone,

Recently Boo has been biting more than usual. When he's biting something like a shoe, shirt, or sock I take it away and he starts biting me or like attacking me. Even when i have a treat in my hand he would still sort of bite until i lock him up in the washroom for 5 seconds and take him back out. He never did this except when he was a bit younger, do you think it's cause he's teeth or he has an aggression problem now?

How old is he? I would think it might well be teething and you might want to get some toys that are good for teething -- some can be placed in the freezer -- not the baby kind that have a gel in them because they could be punctured but other cloth kinds or even baby washclothes with a knot in them.

He is 6 months now. I had a feeling it might be the teething cause when I blocked the drawer handles he was biting he got mad and kept barking and whining . I do have alot of toys though, 1 kong one and 10 other ones. Even cleaning his eye poop and tear stains is so hard now Should I buy more? He doesn't like this rope toy that i freeze cause it's wet after awhile... He is weird.......

I'd recommend a Flossie...they got us through three rounds of teething with little damage to the household!

At 6 months he is definately teething and I would make sure he has stuff to chew on and keep his busy. It will certainly keep him away from the things you don't want him to chew on like your shoes and socks......lol.
