Hi! My pup is beginning to settle in pretty well but having a real problem with her approaching us mouth open! She does not bite down but I have had no real success quashing the play biting and herding (open mouth on my calves- esp going up stairs.)

She has a strong personality and yelling, etc. does not dissuade her- almost think it amps her up.

Any advice for an unflappable pup?

Been doing all of the above. Do admit that it is getting better. Suppose I just need to ride out the puppy phase.

yes, ride it out. It is normal for a dog to use their mouth for so many things. It takes awhile for impulse control to grow. Just keep showing the pup "don't do that, do this instead" and you will see improvement. just remember it is often 3 steps forward and 2 steps back.
