Hi, I am new to this forum. I have a 15 week old Maltese/Shih Tzu. Of course adorable, but I am going through a bit of frustration. He the minute we brought him home became a chewing machine. I have bought him tonnes of chewy toys, which he loves. But he loves peoples hands, hair, feet, every part. I have tried making a loud squeaking noise and he seems to get it with me and I say kisses, I put my hand down and he starts licking. But with everyone else in this house, he keeps on biting, not out of anger, just playing. I have tried other techniques that haven't worked. He also wants to chew on my carpets, my leather sofa has a hole in it, my baseboard as well took a good chewing. He also has moments where he seems to suddenly snap, he growls and tries to bit, something I have never seen in my previous dogs. Also, another issue is that I am having a hard time potty training him. I am not crate training, because I never had to before with other pups. Should I be doing that or is it too late? I take him out often, I can spend alot of time with him out there and we get inside he pee's on my bedroom carpet. He mostly pee's on the pads, but he will NOT poo on the pads. I do praise him when he does his duty outside and I give him a doggy treat. He is a very high energy dog, I assume that is the maltese in him. My sister had one and he was bonkers. PLEASE I beg for advice, should I be thinking about a dog trainer. I need to be taught how raise this kind of dog. Previously, I owned Lhasa Apso, which were both extremely intelligent dogs.
