Hi Ron, since we had two EB siblings, and we have 6 children in our family all under the age of 6, they are all cousins, we couldn't have the puppies biting them. What I did from day one of bringing my puppies home, whenever they bit or nipped us, I would redirect with a chew toy, or bone and say No or Ouch firmly. If they did nip me, I would take their mouth in my hand and gently push their face towards the floor and in a firm voice say No bite, gentle, and they would stop. It didn't take very long before they stopped. The best way I've found to teach them not to be nippy is to get them used to you going in their mouth, taking things away, and handling them, by this I mean I placed the whole side of my hand in their mouths, I gave them food or a treat and then while they were eating it, I would take the bowl away from them, so they would get used to this, and not snap or get food aggressive if the kids would come near them when they were eating, I would take things out of their mouth when they picked up something outside, I handled their ears, I trimmed their nails, I brushed them, I washed their faces and ears with baby wipes, I socialized them with dogs in my neighbourhood that I knew the owners, and knew they were up to date on vaccinations, and I exposed them to all the kids. If you do these things from a young age, they get used to it and will pretty much let you do anything to them, and if they are eating, my guys won't even flinch or get mad when you touch their food. The kids can touch them anywhere and they have never bitten any of them.
