My 6 months old Boston Terrier is Too Energetic and he’s Constantly Biting! How to Change this Behavior?


Here is a question from Mandi asking other Boston Terrier owners about the bad behavior of her 6 months old Boston Terrier.

She says : “Hi… I was hoping you could help me, I have a 6 month old Boston Terrier who is such trouble!! He gets super energetic and is constantly biting at me and my husband’s feet. When we firmly shout NO, little Arnie will start barking aggressively at us and continue biting our feet and jumping. Help! How do we change his behavior to be a good dog?”

Does anyone have any advices and/or experiences?

I purchased a product called “Petgentle” online and it worked the first time I used it.
