As some of you may know in a recent thread in the Puppy Gallery I explained I have a new Cav pup at 9 weeks old called Rio.
He knows how to sit and do the paw trick, very intelligent, can be bossy at times and at the moment he is now 10 and a half weeks old.
We have been using the time-out method if he has been naughty and it seems to be working slowly but surely he is getting the idea.
However last night he snapped at my Dad and Mum both, while playing with him. Is this normal ???? it seemed a little out of character for him. He had his other injection on Saturday and the vet had thought he hit a nerve as everytime he moved he yelped so he gave him a little painkiller and he was right as rain, while during the checkup they found he had ear mites. He is currently taking ear drops for this.
Could the snapping be linked to his ear infection and his wanting to bite everything?
I was wondering if any of you could give us a few pointers on what we could do to help the little tyke.
