Default Help!

I have a beautiful 17 week old male who has turned into a terror. He growls and bites at everyone. what am I doing wrong? I am a new Cockapoo owner but I had a Cocker Spaniel for 13 years. I don't remember her ever acting like this. I try to walk him daily, we spend a lot of time outside. I have a huge fenced yard and he can roam. Any tips, I know some behaviors he will grow out of, but, what can I do in the meantime?

Hi can you give more details on the behavior? Like does he growl when you're playing or when he seems excited or is he growling when he is guarding something. Generally growling at a young age shouldn't be too much to worry about but it depends on the circumstances.

He growls when he is playing and excited. He just loves to tug anything.

I would ignore the growling. It may sound dangerous but it's just playing. As for the biting, trying initiating a play of tug o war and if he makes contact with your skin stop playing immediately and give him a break and then try again and repeat (if you're not already doing this). After a while he'll understand that touching skin will stop the fun. There are ton of videos on youtube (try zak george if you don't know him) and dealing with puppy biting. If you're already doing these things then he'll definitely grow out of it after a while. My puppy is 22 weeks and hardly ever play bites anymore.
