I do not think that there is one correct answer on this. We have some young dogs that started early, but until they were about 8 months old, I wanted to kill them every time I took them out because they never shut up. Now at 10 months, the extra mouth is almost gone. I think that it will be about right by the time they are adults.

On the other hand, I have seen some pups that started mouthy and as old dogs, they were still mouthy.

I am hoping it is just "puppy" and he will grow out of it, but he barks constantly when he hits the ground. Fine in the kennel.

Check out the parents and grandparents. This should give you a good idea of what the finished dog will be like. The apple doesn't usually fall far from the tree.

Correct.
Any of you guys try breeding to a tighter mouth line, to try to control it better? I'd so how many generations to correct, did it work

There is no dog in bloodline that babbles... Not even one that I call loose. If they bark there has been a rabbit there. Now some have colder nose and will bark on older track. He is Blackcreek/Weircreek with really good genetics. I won't call the names of parents/grandparents because you would know the names well.
