Carly, now 4 months old, thinks the greatest fun in the world is to nip and grab at our ankles or pants legs as my husband and I walk across the room or the yard. No amount of "no bite!" scolding will deter her when this bit of devilment strikes her. Adding to the frustration is the way she'll rear back and jump just out of reach if we bend down to pick her up or try to get her off our ankle or jeans leg. Yesterday I decided to keep her leash on her all day so we could control her ankle biting when/if she had a mind to try it and that helped. She wasn't keen on having the leash trail around with her everywhere (it's a short 4 ft one), but it did give us a way to stop the behavior at once and prevent the bite and run dance that she thinks is so funny.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Found a solution? I know she'll outgrow it but in the meantime we've got puppy tooth marks on our ankles and holes in our jeans!
