I recently got a cairn puppy and she is a little terror!  I am going through a lot trying to potty train and to stop her from eating me alive.  She really is sweet but teething is awful!  Any suggestions?

Believe it or not in a while (like a few months or years) you will look back at these days with nostalgia. Many of us remember those days when our pups learned so quickly what to do and then decided not to do it. When their sharp teeth tore at us and all our stuff that they could grab.

Yep like we say all the time patience persistence and definitely a sense of humor are required if you live with a young cairn. My difficulty in those early times was preventing myself from laughing. Angus was SO naughty - testing me all the time but he was also so amusing - 'Life's game Ma. Come and play'.

Eventually when he grew up and became my good friend and partner I loved him all the more for what we'd been through together☺️

Tell us more about your pup and post a pic if she'll stay still a minute - when she's napping maybe -they are all so adorable then.

Best of luck!

Don't despair!  Check out the *many* posts about puppy behavior in the Behavior and Health section.  You are not alone and you CAN survive Cairn puppyhood.😉

Thank you for replying. I have been so busy with work and keeping up with my little terror I haven't had time to check on anything!
