ok, so we have an almost 12wk old pug mix puppy who iss 5 lbs. He is pretty good at housetraining and we use a crate as that is how his foster mom had him. I know puppies nip and we have two young girls so we've been working on distracting him with his chew toys and this usually works. My question is, what do i do when i just can't distract him? When i'm making dinner or helping the girls with something, i can't distract him, it only works when i can play with the toy with him. The past two days, it's gotten so bad, i had to crate him just to make dinner! But i know this is wrong. The crate shouldn't be used for punishment. In this situation, what other choice do i have? He is too young for rabies vaccine, so i can't take him to daycare...i'm feeling helpless and clueless. Please help me!
