As my ddog is now 2 and I've had him from 8 weeks old I thought it might be helpful to new puppy owners to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Please add

1) car sickness
2) earing his own poo
3 seeing on visitors ( my friends pup used
to do this )

3).was meant to read peeing on visitors

Ankle biting
Separation anxiety

Eating socks.
Eating his own pooh and other dogs
Eating stones.
Biting us all daily.

He’s still only 9 months so there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Thank you so much for posting these! My puppy is 12 weeks and doing most of the above so it's a relief to know that he should grow out of these bad habits. The constant eating everything on the ground outside is not fun (chunks of lawn, snails, rotting fruit....). And he hates the car and is car sick (and then eats it obviously).

Only if they are nice things not grown out of @RedHelenB !
Like still being super-happy to see you in a cute squirmy way, still wanting to play with toys etc!

Being an asshole 99% of the time, it's down to around 80% now.
