    Hi, I have not been online for so long due to me being so busy, but I will be back online every now and then as now my life has got so difficult with Doris and Olive... Olive is doing well but Doris loves to chew Olives neck so it's all scabby is there a way of getting Doris to stop biting Olive? Olive is going into the vets tomorrow for a spay and Doris for her KC vaccine :). I will try and do Olives diary once a month because of busyness... Doris' diary is going to get better soon as I have taken lots of pictures. Olive is much better now after her adventures and I have now sectioned off the garden where the plants are. So many new dogs on here now :)

    Constant supervision and consistent short timeouts would probably be the best approach, same as for puppy-biting on humans:) Keep her on a house lead so you can remove her from Olive straight away - do this on walks too if they're off lead together. I'd also put her straight back on lead if she does it.

    Hi again! You are really going through it with your too. As for the chewing try distraction- can you find anything she'll enjoy chewing more than dog?

    @merlina I have been trying frozen tea-towels she seems to like the cooling feeling. Can Doris have rawhide chews at nearly 4 months old

    I wouldn't give rawhide at any age. I have read some horrible things about them causing blockages. I prefer to give pizzle, raw chicken wings, or dried jerky for chewing and crunching.

    I've never given Harri rawhide - he gets pizzle sticks as a chewy snack
