I am looking for training ideas and personality traits as a puppy? I am told this breed is very docile but I am the owner of a VERY EXTREMELY hyper puppy that just loves to bite, bite, bite anything and everything and everybody. I want to know if this is normal? Will he outgrow it? Is there some training that needs to be done?

I adopted him from a breeder at 9 weeks old. He is now just turned 16 weeks on Saturday. I have him in a crate, that might be helpful fact too. Thank you for the advice, I am so grateful and definitely will read all three hubs. Double thumbs up!
Hi DrMark, can you help me find your hub on crazy, nippy puppies? I went to your page and can't seem to find it. Thanks, Vicki
The link is https://pethelpful.com/dogs/Dog-Training-Tips-Pupp... . If HP deletes this, look near the bottom at "How to train a crazy, chewy, nippy puppy". Crates make puppies hyper, so if you can exercise more and crate less he is better off
Thanks for the link! One big problem is when I try to bring Clyde for a walk, he doesn't want to go any further than the driveway. He just sits and doesn't move. I think it's the Great Pryeneese breed?
The walking problem might be his breed, or he might be going through a fearful phase. Is he food motivated? Take some pieces of liver in a fanny pack, give him one to draw him a foot away, then another, etc. If not food, is he toy motivated?
I just wanted to say thanks for that great advice. Clyde is now walking down to the mailbox with me for mail and the newspaper every day because . . he knows there's a cookie for him there. Then yesterday I got him to walk halfway around block.
