Crazy Max

This dog is nuts! Even though we changed his name from Boss to Max he still thinks he's the boss. He only listens to Alan and unfortunately Alan is only home a few hours a day. When all the kids are home it's mayhem!!! He has a serious biting problem. He is always following behind someone nipping at their feet or dragging behind them attached to a pant leg. Tate has taken to screaming like a girl any time the dog comes near him and jumping onto the nearest piece of furniture. It's seriously driving me crazy! I know he's a puppy and he's just doing what puppies do but it's got to stop. I say "no bite" at least 50 times a day. I hold his little nose together all the time and he's just not getting it. My friend says I need to walk around all day with a spray bottle and spray him every time he bites. I guess that's my next step since nothing else works. Here's a picture of him attached to Tanner's pant leg, then Tanner running for protection. What you can't see is that Tanner literally dove onto the slide as if his life depended on it. Tanner tries to wear those rubber boots in the house now because he says they protect him from bite wounds. It's getting ridiculous around here!

He's even trying to bite himself in this picture. I'm not kidding, that's really what he's doing.
P.S. Check out the spiked collar!!! Tanner finally caved in and let us get one, it's so stinking cute on him.

Puppies are a handful, but those ears are too cute to resist! Maybe you need to enroll him in dog obedience school!

So, that's too funny!so... i heard the spray bottle thing works really well! If you need a second "weaopon" I've heard that filling a water bottle with penny's and shaking it when you say no... aparently they hate that sound.
