My Dog Still Bites Me

1823 Views 35 Replies 19 Participants Last post by  warrior poet
Even after getting onto him for many months, my dog likes to nip at me. Iecan understand his herding instincts when he nips at my hells and calves [which actually tickles--he just kinda "mouths" them]. But, whenever we start playing, or if I pet him vigorously, he has a tendency to bite my hands--even after I have scolded him for it. He finally stopped biting my wife after she started wimpering like a hurt puppy everytime he did it--took about two weeks. When I tried that, he took it as a game, or as "come in for the kill now.":freak:

Any suggestions on how to stop his biting? He is about 9.5 months old now, and 80 lbs.

Might not be the best way to train a dog, but illegal? I'd have to say "spanking" a dog would be a far cry from animal abuse. Immoral? Again, animal abuse, yes, spanking a dog, no. I'm also of the camp that a dog is a dog and that there are times when a dog does need phyical correction which might end up being a light tap, depending on the situation. Not that I have any special insight, good luck with your problem.
