Exactly what happened! She looked at him like " hey, where you going??"

blehmannwa Havoc nibbles his family and a few close friends. It's a token of his highest regard. He loved to nibble our old cat and I would stop it until I realized that the cat was encouraging him. Her last months were spent with a spit mohawk down her spine but she would be purring like a motor.

I've never seen him even begin to nibble anyone outside of our "pack" but I can see where it would be disconcerting. My old pit used to like to "smash" people. She would creep close while a guest was seated and than throw her weight on their chest and lick their face. A few times, she really scared people but that just made her tail wag harder.

MichaelE Lisl does it to me sometimes. I don't say anything to her about it. I thought it was because she was trying to groom me. I think that's why she gives so many kisses in the morning too (besides trying to wake me up).

Kahrg4 I second Baillif on this one. As a stranger it's cute when a puppy nibbles, but when it's a large adult dog it can make people very nervous. The last thing you need is for someone to cause a stir for you because they misinterpret the nibble.

Baillif It is more play related I think, but in either case I wouldn't let her do it to strangers. It can scare people. Zebu love tapped my gf's mom on the butt when he was a little guy and she has been intimidated ever since.

ladyb Yes that's what it looks like...but without the fleas! She does it to my sons beard
