    DefaultLabby - I love you!

    You posted this advice:

    What I tell my puppy people to do is "bite" back. I've done the "OUCH" and all the other goodies and none of them work as well.

    Its hard to describe, but I pinch the puppy's nose when it bites me. I grab hold of the nose between my index and middle finger and pinch hard enough that the puppy squeals a bit. As I am doing this, I say very low and growly "NO BITE". The pup is getting "bit" by the bigger/alpha dog. Usually they will attempt to bite one more time, within seconds of them getting "bit". They get bit again for their efforts.

    It doesn't take many times of getting "bit" before they figure it out and stop.
    I used it today and it was the most effective method for stopping biting/nipping that I've used over the last 10 weeks. Lexie nipped me this morning and I pinched her nose and she immediately stopped and stared at me. For the majority of the day she was a saint. She got a little nippy again this evening so I used the quick pinch and she was calm again.

    I love you and worship the ground you walk on. Do you like chocolate? I will send you a lifetime supply?

    I'm going to post this in the training tips thread, it's a really great technique.

    Thank you!

    Robin

    Glad it worked for you. I love chocolate, but my hips don't.

    Thanks again, I think it really does work. This morning Lexie did her morning excitement frenzy and I was able to get her to do a sit and down as she was jumping all around. She's never done that without my having a treat in my hand.
