Have you seen all the hints/tips/suggestions ---> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...tips-help.html

I never said it would change on its own. If you read my first comment I told him to redirect.

Galathiel Assuming you've been teaching bite inhibition all along, her age, and whether this is more of a "I don't want to do that" nip to get her way, I would use a correction personally and not just redirect. A sharp "no" and a time out. Every time.

llombardo My female mouthed for a couple weeks and was done at about 3.5 months. My male was mouthy when I got him from the shelter, he was about 8 months. It took about a week for him to stop. I used redirection for both.

dgshowfan Yes, I've used the toy routine also =)

erfunhouse She's just a shepherd. Have you tried trading your hand for a toy and praising her chewing the toy?

Mouthy at 6mos..

I just spayed my female gsd. She just turned 6mos. Had her since 2mos. She is still using her mouth on my hand when she doesn't want me to do anything. Not that I stop doing what I was doing. I've tried the loud No, holding her lips around her teeth, using my thumb on her bottom jaw, trying to get her to stop and show her I'm not afraid of her mouth. Any suggestions? We also have periodic challenges with her front paws. I've raised and trained collies but she is 65pounds and seems to have domineering tendendcies..
