Hello everyone, so Appa is finally home and hes 9 weeks. His first night he was very quiet but his 2nd day and 3rd day with us has been different. when we leave to work or leave him he begins to whine and bark and I came in a couple times and noticed him bitting the play penn I have him in. He barks and whines really aggressively. Is this normal behavior seen in chow chows or should I be concerned?

This is normal while they are settling in. I often give my young puppies something to keep them busy. For us it is a raw beef bone with a little meat on it for the puppy to chew on. Other have mentioned that they give yummy treats in a kong. I found that they wear themselves out and settle in after a spell. It is hard to ignore them when they carry on. Just make certain that his bladder is empty first.

Great advice with the distraction, Cindy. That's what worked for us too, most of the time anyway. This phase didn't last long though.
