7 Week Old Aussie Nipping And Growling
My husband and I have had our black tri Aussie male puppy for a little over a week. We love having him in our family. He is super smart, playful, and can be loving. I know that they are a herding breed but when I walk around he bites and chews at my jeans and shoes, I tell him no sternly and move him away. When I move him away he growls, barks, and nips at me. Is this something that he will grow out of? Is it aggression towards me? How do we make him stop growling and nipping at us?
My other question is about him having spouts of diarrhea. He had squirting diarrhea this morning but then it was fine this evening. He also had soupy poop yesterday once. Is this something to be concerned about? Is something wrong going on with our puppy? Please let me know what you think.
