Can someone please help? I have a small papillon and when you throw a toy, he picks up the toy and brings it back to you, if you pick him up while he’s playing with the toy he throws a fit and growls like crazy, he bares his teeth as well. He doesn’t listen when you firmly tell him no. Also when you pick him up he growls a bit as well.
He’s nine months old and likes biting as well. Has anyone got any other methods of training him? Does the mist bottle work?
I also don’t want to punish him too much if it’s just a phase.
