We have added a puppy named Hugo to our family. He's 6 months, and we've had him since he was weaned. He's a mix of English mastiff and Cane Coral. He's been a very good dog so far, no unexpected problems. The unexpected one (and I looked through pages and pages of posts and googled it without seeing anything pertinent) is that he swipes his paws, similar to a cat. Hes not trying to hurt us, but he's such a big, strong puppy that he can break skin. I'm not even sure what steps tonyake yo curb this behavior. I do have a friend who has an English who says hers did that as a puppy, but stopped as he got bigger. Should I just wait for it to pass on its own and have patience? Any advice at all is welcome.
