I have just got an Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy and she is wonderful. She is practically house broke and she is only 9 weeks old. The dilemma is that she frequently tears into my legs when I'm out walking around the yard with her and if I try to do something like weeding, she is into tearing up my hands. I don't want to break her spirit but she is making me bleed! Help...
