My 7 mo old pup likes to bite my seven year old little boy. He is playful, but it hurts my son. We say, "No bite." And stand up and walk away, but my puppy continues to do it and only with my son. Any thoughts? The puppy has lots of love and lots of exercise and lots of chew toys.
in what situations/contexts is the dog biting at your son?
He will do it when my son is playing on his wii or if I go upstairs and they are both downstairs without me. He bites at my son's leg. He is wagging his tail, but sometimes while growling. It's an everyday occurrence.
We also had a seven year old (now she's eight) at the same time as a lab puppy. Piper had the same problem but if memory serves it was more like 3 months to 5 months that she was the worst.
It was hard on Jada (our daughter) but she wasn't allowed to do anything "Wild on the Ground" when Piper was that age. It was just too hard for Piper to know what to do-she thought Jada was playing with her. As Piper got older and Jada learned what her body language was saying to Piper things got better. It meant a lot of supervision for the rest of us in the family but it payed off fairly quickly. I'm sure it will for you as well.
Now, Jada can do pretty much anything and Piper (15 months) doesn't mess with her, at least not with teeth. Sometimes she can't help but try to screw up Jada's cartwheels! But that's just by throwing her body into the mix and that doesn't hurt either of them!
