andrea04 When she gets too carried away we put her in her crate for a few minutes. We also go to puppy play class once a week and obedience another day. We have a fenced in backyard but she never wants to stay out the long. But I have noticed the more we play with her the better she is. Maybe I just need to teach my kids not to get all riled up bc then she thinks it's time to bite

MaggieRoseLee Bored puppy wanting to play.

Need to come up with a way to wear out that puppy so when the kids are around she'll be in a mindset to calm and listen (sleeping is good too )

REAL exercise, as many hours off leash as possible during the week. PUPPY CLASSES are a huge help.

You following all of this? --->

Hopefully using the crate consistently for 'time outs' NOT PUNISHMENT can work to give a bit of a break. But this will only work if you are otherwise tiring her out.

gnet158 My boy is just over 2 months old and bites from time to time. We distract him by sticking one of his toys in his mouth. If he's **** bent on biting we say no and OUCH! My older boy did the same thing. I've heard penny's in a can, and rattling when he bites works, but I've never tried it.

gurlonfire2004 Yeah, I would say exercise her more. And if you find her biting after exercise, then she is probably tired. If you crate her then she will most likely nap. My puppy put holes in my clothes for a while. I mostly used redirecting to toys and chews, time-out, and lots of exercise. It also really helped that I had taught her "leave it" and "drop it". If she obeyed the command, she got a treat every time. She is doing much better, but she is only 5 months old, so she might relapse. :-)

Daisyline What we do is we yelp and continue to keep yelping till he licks our hands then we take him outside for running or flirt pole or some tug time to tire him out he only gets mouthy when in play mode. Maybe we are lucky and got a not so mouthy dog but that seems to work with us. Also I noticed my min pin is helping a lot with teaching bite pressure.

Chip18 It's normal but I can't remember how I dealt with it myself, so:

carrieincolorado Chevelle is 6 months old now and for a few weeks I thought the biting was over and now it's back... sigh. Usually it's when she is feeling emotional tho.. (like when I come back to the car after working for a few hours)

TigervTeMar know that one day she'll outgrow it. Tiger still bites but if it isn't too hard I tolerate it. if he starts getting too carried away I'll use a spritzer bottle to good effect. if you use it don't aim the water at the face or eyes, just enough squirts (3-4 sometimes, others just once) to the chest or back to stop her or get her to scamper away. it doesn't hurt him and I'm sure it's more of the surprise and unpleasant wet sensation that stops the biting.

andrea04 We yell ouch and she still continues biting. We've tried putting her in her crate she comes out wanting to bite even more
