My 5 month old border collie puppy Chase has been biting since the days following us bringing him home, about 3 months ago. His biting has always come across as playful but it's getting intense now. Sometimes he is so desparate to bite it makes him cry. I don't put his biting down to teething because even though his teeth are coming through he isn't chewing. I also don't put it down to boredom, he gets 1 40 minute walk in the morning, a play at the park at lunchtime, and another 40 minute walk at bed time. He also has plenty of toys and thingds to do. It's hard to describe how he bites but it's like he becomes a different dog. My arms are cover in bites where his teeth have actually gone into my skin. Also he has become quite possesive with certain foods, such as the other day we gave him some meat from the butchers and when i tried to walk past him he threw his head back, growled and tried to bite me. He is absolutely fabulous in all other areas. He's sociable, gets along with other dogs, knows lots of obedience tricks eg sit, lie down, shake a paw, spin, roll over and walks off the lead. I am just scared that this is something he wont grow out of. I have tried everything (yelping,holding him down (i didnt feel comfortable with this one), leaving the room, ignoring him) it just doesn't seem to work. This is my familys first dog, maybe it wasn't a good idea to get a border collie
