9 month old biting
My 9 mo female has been biting again. Sje has always been very bitey but it seemed to tone down for awhile but the past. Dats she has started again. Like when i interact with her in her crate she bit me, not hard she doesnt seem to put much pressure. But when i said no she began to put down more pressure. So i took my hand away and said no again and she went for my hand again and lunged at me. I believe it is just play, but it is disrespectful annoying and starts to hurt when she puts down pressure. Again today when i was bringing her inside on her leash I was trying to take it off ans she bit my hand, so i kept trying to take off the leash and she kept biting my arms even though i told her no multiple times. I got so fed up when she bit me again I fave her a smack with the end of my leash which has a rubber handle. Then she bit me again and tried to run away to avoid the punishment. I was so pissed and I put her in her cage again and tried my best to not freak out even though she did start biting again. Now I dobt think she is trying to hurt me but i do believe she is being bratty so to say. My fear is that, if she does this to me, her main handler, what will she do if someone else tries to play with her or kids are around. She plays too rough and i am having trouble stopping it. I need some advice, should I use a bonker like Larry Krohm says, or do I do something else. Because right now I'm completely lost and very frustrated.
