So, Odins tantrums haven't been getting any better. I have tried many of the things people have recommended to me and none are working. Sometimes it's because he doesn't get his way that he acts a certain way. But just by pikcing him up or touching him when he doesn't want to be he starts to growl and nit. Now he has been honestly trying to inflict pain. He will bite as hard as he can and wont let go of my hand. I'm not sure if this is just the breed but out of all the different dogs I have had and all the dogs my mother has had, we cannot remember ever having a puppy that acted so viciously. He is a puppy, I am not intimidated by him but when he bites he really means to hurt. I really need some good advice, I can't at the moment pay for a special trainer but I am working at a vets earning more money so that I mey be able to get him into training. I do have some bite marks from him where his teeth have really gotten me when he wouldn't let go. Sometimes I can understand why he gets upset but he is a whole lot more mean then sweet, he acts sweet maybe for a few minutes then the rest of the day he is constantly biting and throwing tantrums. I am doing my best to be consistant with him but nothing is working. I am attending college right now and working at a vet clinic and trying to deal with his tantrums, it very stressful for me. I try to be very positive with him, I'm calm and consistant. I give him the attention he needs. I love him, so I would like to do the best I can for him. Thank you for any adivce you can give me.
