Baxter is newest member of our family. He is sort of a rescue pup. Not exactly sure of his age, the vet said at that time he was less than 6 months old. He was in a bad home, neglected for the most part. Just from researching, I believe he was taken from his mom too early and then left alone most of the time. His social skills are improving so much since we brought him home.
I need help or advice. He is very attached to me. He is crated when I leave with our 2 other dogs. When I let him out he is happy to see me. But he jumps up and nips at me or chases along behind me nipping. Sometimes he gets my shirt and then sometimes he makes contact with my person! How can I stop this behavior without causing him to lose trust in me?
