Hello, my name is Robert. Me and my mother recently purchased an 8 week old doberman pincher puppy. We a crate which she sleeps in and she is very playful. She knows when to nap and eat and is extremely intelligent. She sleeps upstairs in her crate in my mothers room. I am currently residing downstairs in a pullout bed because i have a cast and crutchs from a recent surgery that will be off soon. I have two cats who have seen the dog they have sniffed each other and know of the opposites presence. I would like to know how to train her not to playful bite (she has many chew toys), How to come when we call and basic puppy training i hope that i recieve much info as it will be put to good use. If you need more info. leave a question to be answered. Thanks in advance Robert.

Hi, Robert.

Congrats on your new puppy. You do know that photos are mandatory! We have to see this adorable new girl you have.

I have a couple of little articles on my website that helps with just the things you are needing help with.

Check out my training page for the links.

These links can help you learn to teach your puppy not to mouth inappropriately.

if she bites while you're playing with her, let out a high yelp like you're in pain, even if you're not. this helps her realize that tooth-skin contact during play with a human will always result in playtime ending.
if you're not playing and she's biting at you, ignore her bad behavior and give her a chew toy and praise her lavishly when she chews on it.

but the best thing is socialization. bring her to puppy socialization/behavior classes where she can play with other puppies and learn to inhibit her bite.
