I have a 3 month old pit mix who tends to latch-on to me (my clothes, shoes, whatever) and growl--often. I want to believe that my puppy just doesn't know right from wrong yet and this can be corrected but what if that's not the case? How do I tell the difference? Hershey's my first dog ever. I've always had cats, a ferret, a rat (I know)...basically, I'm an animal person so I'm not overreacting, at least I don't think I am.
Just a bit of background: His mom was a rescue and Hershey was 1 of 4 in the litter. Hershey's mom's original owner was arrested though I don't know what for and that's how the mom ended up in the rescue. He's very smart & alert & opinionated (& stubborn)--all things that I can deal with but the biting & growling are the biggest issues for me.
