Shih Tzu Question

My Shih Tzu puppy is about 10 weeks old now and bites me terribly every time I try to hold him....


My Shih Tzu puppy is about 10 weeks old now and bites me terribly every time I try to hold him. Everyone says be firm with him so I have tried flicking him, smacking him and holding him down. Nothing works! I know he is just playing, but it hurts and I can't take him anywhere with me because he gets so crazy. I need help!

My Shih Tzu puppy was the same way. Nothing seemed to help. I started putting him in his crate for time out. He slowly learned what it meant. But, now that his canine's are coming in, he is back to nipping my ankle's & it really hurts! So,he goes back in the crate for about 15 minutes. Do not talk to him or acknowledge him while he's in the crate. Not even if he cries or barks. Once I let him out, I say give me a kiss. And, he does. :)
