It's mainly when we have her in the lounge with us at night and she constantly jumps up on us - our fault for giving her endless cuddles on the lounge when we first got her, I guess.

If we invite her up for a cuddle she will chill out a bit, but then the biting starts.

We just need to be able to make her tired!! Our vet said she couldn't go out before 16 weeks but others say after 12 is ok. Hard to know...

Pet suppliers should have it. Just spray the spray on your hands and fingers. That should do it. If she likes the taste try tabasco sauce. But that'll be a bit icky on your hands. What vet do you go to? My pup got vaccinated at 6 weeks, 9 weeks and her last is at 12 weeks. It depends how you start them. But if her last one is at 16 weeks keep her away from other dogs till then. Dont risk it. My pups brother died b/c of parvo. She's the only surviver from the litter. She's special. LOL. Give Ruby a hug for me. At the moment to make my 11 week old pup tired we put her on the leash and walk in the garden with her. We have another dog that she plays with. He's vaccinated though. And he's not alloweed to meet other dogs till the pup has had all her shots. We dont want her to get parvo.

Let her up. Then as soon as the biting starts, put her on the floor and say a firm 'No'. And leave her on the floor for a couple of minutes. Then she will learn if she bites she goes on the floor.

Parvo has been included in the first two vaccinations she's had - is this third one just a booster? And can we take her out, perhaps, but not let her come in contact with other dogs?

We took our pup out. She still has one shot to go. If you take her out, put a harness on not a collar. I found with a collar she tried to slip away. Its easier to hold them too. Dont let her come in contact with any dogs or doggy business...(pooh and wee) Parvo spreads through that. The third vaccination is the sealer. It closes the past two vacs as well as boostes them. It's good to maybe take her walking on a foot path little bits at a time. Never in a park. Only foot pathes. Goodluck with that. Tell me what happends if you go ahead with it. I wouldn't recomend it though, I'm not taking our pup out again. I'm too scared to. But if you know someone with a vaccinated dog that hasn't been in contact with other dogs for a while-let your pup meet their dog. She needs to socialize with them. Its important to let your pup meet other dogs beofre 16 weeks. Maybe puppy school? Although diesease pass through there too.
