Play biting, in a 2 year old!?!?!
Zoey my rescue is a great dog that has a few flaws that need to be corrected, one being, play biting. When she gets all worked up and wants to play, she'll start play biting me and holy cow does it hurt. I know she doesn't mean it and just doesn't know otherwise but i need to break the habit and help doing so. It mostly happens in my bed where shell bite the blanket and then go to play with me, few seconds later my whole leg is in her mouth and it hurts!
Immediately when I catch her about to or go to bite me, I kick her out of the room for 5 minutes or so. What else can I do, would a shock collar work? Give her a little buzz that its a no no because anything I'm doing just isn't working.
Also, she has this weird obsession with blankets. She'll put them in her mouth, as much as she can, curl it in with her arms and lay down like that until i get up or do something. I don't know if this was normal so i figured I'd add it.
Here's a pic of her doing it.
