Good Evening...Hope everyone is having an amazing week as for us in the north we have more rain and possible snow SPRING really needs to get here.  Anyway was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to stop mouthing...Hercules is constantly mouthing us I know that it is only in fun but it is really getting annoying no matter what we are doing he has his snout in the way wheather it is going to bed walking to the kitchen or even going to the bathroom in the morning.  He never hurts anyone but the constant teeth on a person really sucks.  Any suggestions is greatly appriciated.

Ashley I did give it a try and it kinda is working for me...he is better but it is not solved I think it will be a work in progress.  We are working on little commands and start obedience classes next week, my daughter is going to use him for he will be doing obedience, showmanship and we are hoping for rally...we are just starting that at county level...wish us luck we may need it.

Millie is awful for biting feet, legs clothes etc.   I had enough today and tried a water spray but she liked this and thought it was a game.  Might try the pennies in a can tomorrow.  Her nails are so sharp too -my legs are all scratches.  Luckily, only being 10 weeks today, she still sleeps a lot - worst time for biting is first thing in the morning.   Every morning she wakes up at 5.00 a.m. so for the last 3 weeks (since we got her) I have not had much sleep - suppose she is worth it though and I do get most of my housework done by breakfast time !!!!!!!!!!!!  Wonder when she will sleep a bit longer in the mornings?

Jackson was horrible at this... we tried everything to get him to stop and it didn't work. One day somebody suggested putting pennies in a can and topping it off with tape. You use this when they do a behavior that is unwanted. Apparentley it's like nails on a chalk board to us... hope it works for you as it did for me.

Positive reinforcement of good behavior is the key everyone says works.  But I'm a bad person and subscribe to the old saying...spare the paddle, spoil the child.  When Ginger started chewing on me, I just grabbed her nose and squeezed till she let go.  She quit.

Not sure...but what about turning away then giving a chew toy, no touching, ignoring or leaving the room for a minute.  This is what we've started with our new puppy when he starts unwanted behavior. He usually stops mouthing and sometimes he'll even go get his chew toy on his own.

I would also like to know.  Pemon is pretty good with me - I say no biting only kisses (lickies) but then he licks you to death.  He is always "mouthing" my husband - but I say it's because my husband always roughs him up.  Our Doodle is really good with me when we're home alone.  He sleeps and loves to be petted by me.  But look out when my husband gets home - he's a terror and again I know it's because of my husband. - He does not do this to other people.  Big help, aren't I?

I think that is totally a Doodle thing. Nuggy was always bad about that too. I started giving him a toy everytime I came home from work, because that was when he did it most. I took a toy every morning and left it on the front porch and when I got home I handed it to him and then would pet him. He will still do it on occasion but I just say no bite and he stops now. I think it just becomes a habit that has to be broken.
