My pup is now 8 months old. He can be very sweet and then turn on a dime and begin biting and chomping and throwing himself at me. No amount of stuffing chew toys in his mouth does any bit of good. There are times we can sit on the couch cuddling for 2 hours, after which he just starts in. Fortunately, he has lost his milk teeth, but he can still draw blood and cause bruises. He has completed 12 training classes, earned two certificates, and is considered an excellent and very bright dog. This little feller is my 6th standard poodle and the first I have ever been exasperated with. I am in my mid-70s. Maybe it's my age. Maybe it's he. Maybe it's 5G making all the animals go nuts. I sure wish I knew! I will admit that he's pretty spoiled. Maybe I am treating him like a grandchild instead of a child. Any ideas. Have a call into a canine behaviorist who raises poodles. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is both ends of the spectrum. I wish we could meet somewhere in the middle! He does no serious damage to the home, apart from playfully pulling towels off the rack. But he eats "stuff," including a face mask, twigs, dried leaves, paper towels, and whatever he can get his mouth on in the yard. This little feller was one of 13 in his litter. I am led to believe the rest are all just angels. Perhaps...
