Hey all, wasn't sure if this is considered puppy since from what I have heard they stay puppies for a while. My 14 month old female "Athena" is overall a good girl, but her mouthiness around particularly my 8 year old daughter and 13 year old son is becoming problematic. These by no means look like biting with the intent to hurt, but its making it so that my daughter in particular is afraid to go near her. The behavior is far less with me, very seldom will she do it. Example, last night we were all watching a movie in the living room. Athena was just kind of prowling around and chewing her toy. My daughter just sort of motioned to her in a playful voice and she pounced onto the couch and started biting her feet and hands as she tried to pet her. No growling or aggressive posturing. My son then tried to pet her and she immediately tries to bite his hand. Again not hard but she is fast whipping her head around and biting hands. We have tried to have them walk away when she does it, but once she starts they can't even get away because she follows them. I find this to occur more often in the morning after she is let out of her crate. She does this with my kids immediately when they get playful, but with me she is more willing to be pet or touched. I suspect this is partly because she spent a large portion of her early months with my son and he was playing too rough with her but I am not sure how to correct this now. She is not spayed yet, if that matters at all. Also, she does respond to basic sit and stay etc but she tends to be stubborn about it when treats are not involved. I feel bad because they want to love and pet her so badly but she just doesnt let them....any help would be greatly appreciated.
