My boy Gunner is 4 months old, and still mouthy. Got to redirect his biting to something else, such as a chew toy.

Harry and Lola yeah flicking the head is not going to help you. She is only young but old enough to start training. I have had great success with rubbing Vicks Vaporub on areas puppy is biting like my ankles, hands, leads etc. The smell stops them and they eventually learn not to, however please give your pup lots of appropriate things to chew on - chewing is good for them. Also DO NOT make your puppy lick or eat Vicks Vaporub.

Ali B. I would stop flicking her head and holding her snout. It's only going to encourage her even more. GSD pups are very mouthy. Refer to the puppy biting tips and hints above for good advice.

MaggieRoseLee Welcome to the forum!

Our GSD's pups are WAY more bity and mouthy then other breeds, have you seen this yet? -->

There are even more hints/tips to read up on ---> Welcome to the GSD/FAQ's for the first time owner - German Shepherd Dog Forums

Hopefully the crate training is going well. I know I have to keep the crate in the bedroom at night so you may need that tip if you are having trouble at night

Not too early to look at ---->

New pup

Hi I have an7 week old beautiful female shepherd named Harley. She is nipping and biting a lot ! I say no, tried holding her snot, and flicking the side of her head. Nothing seems to work. She has a lot of energy. A lot more so than our 11 yr old cockapoo ever had. What do I do about the nipping?
