We brought Gooner home 2/8. Going well he is doing great in crate. bathroom between 10-11pm sleeps until 4:30 out to pee then back to crate. up at 7a. The only problem is he loves grabbing my 4 yo sons jeans or pajama bottoms and he gets scared I have to pry him off.

He is a doll!! Our Kramer did the same when he was that age. Kramer is now two. What we did was when he went for the pajama bottoms, we would stop and say no. If he went to grab them once we started walking again, we would stop and say NO. It takes some time but it worked after a few days. Anything long,

jeans, sweats, P.J's Kramer loved to grab them. I guess anything that drags the floor.

Gooner is one handsome little boy! His coloring is absolutely gorgeous. Scully did the same thing to me for a few weeks but stopping and saying "NO!" it came to an end. Just part of puppyhood!

Gooner is a cutie. He looks like Greta before her puppy coat was pulled.

Gooner is adorable and his name is adorable also. I have a 4 yer old son and Duncan would grab at his clothes. I would pick him up, say NO and hold him until he settled down. Aidan and Duncan play pretty roughly and Duncan will start mouthing him. Again, I have to hold him until he settles down and I also reprimand Aidan. Honestly, they have so much fun together and they both seem to like the roughness but I am afraid someone is going to get hurt so I nip it in the bud.

Gooner is an adorable puppy! I currently have a new pup (Westie) who loved nothing better than to bite our feet and pull our socks off. Although he's not a Cairn, I find him to be just as challenging, if not more. I do say "no" to him and find it worked if I redirected him to something that was acceptable for him to chew on. If he grabbed at me, I'd tell him "no", and then redirect him w/ to one of his toys. I've been doing this now for several weeks and now if he goes to grab my socks or pants, I only have to say "no" once and shove one of his toys in front of him to redirect his play. I still get some backtalk from him, but he has learned to leave my feet, socks and pants alone. Just stay consistent and enjoy your little pup, they grow up way too fast.
