Nico 8 Month Update!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a splendid day. Today I wanted to talk to you about my puppy, I know it’s been a minute.

First, he’s getting so big. That’s to be expected, he is a German Shepherd after all, I just remember when he was small, he’s grown so much and I can’t believe he’s just gonna get bigger. Here is a picture when we first got him.

His biting has not improved, if anything it has gotten worse, now especially because his teeth are so big. But I remember someone commented on my last puppy post to not use so much negative reinforcement, and that has helped because whenever we would slap him on the nose or hold his mouth shut, he would be viscous back, so that’s good I guess.

We discovered some different ways to preoccupy him as far as the chewing goes. I found that he really enjoys chewing on pig ears. We are constantly buying him cow hooves to chew on, and he loves them even more when you fill them with peanut butter or but the pre-filled ones with beef or bacon flavor.

We have started taking him to training classes, and I feel his behavior has improved, and he has learned basic commands like sit and down.

About last week, he started acting like a boy, if you know what I mean. He formed a relationship with one of my favorite teddy bears and absolutely destroyed it. But we are definitely going to be taking him to the vet very soon to get him fixed.

That’s about it for his update. Even though, he’s a pain in my butt, I love him so much, more than I thought I ever could. He does have an Instagram account if you’re interested, it’s Nicothegsd13. Thank you so much for reading!
