Just on here looking for some advice on handling this new development. Recently when I picked up my 4 month old beagle pup to cool down during a play session she bit me and growled at me. I told her no and waited for her to calm down. Now the biting and growling seems to be her immediate reaction when I pick her up/try to take something away/etc.not sure what to do next. I have bruises and cuts on my hands arms and would very much like to eliminate this behaviour! I plan on taking obedience classes but I not sure where to start right now. This started a few days ago.
