Proper Puppy Play
I have a young Aussie pup named Tootsie, she's very sweet and playful but has to constantly be chewing on something. I've read all over that this is normal for puppies but it's almost like her biting is getting harder. When we play she's more interested in chewing on me than her toys it seems. I've also read places that playing tug of war or wrestle or rough play can lead to aggression, is this true? and if so what's a more appropriate play? We try to get her to fetch but her attention is more on our hands or arms than the toy so she won't always go after the toy.
We've tried some affirmative "No's" and ignoring... so far to no prevail, its like she gets more persistent when we try.
Some tips and tricks would be very helpful. I love her so much and I just want her to grow up well behaved and happy.
