    I sure hope she grows out of it! We left the dogs together for the first time today... we kept them mostly separated because we thought Gunner would hurt Belly. He put her in her place a few times (I was holding my breath) but all went well with them. I wouldn't say they were buds just yet, but at least Gunner knows how to get her to stop biting!

    Have you check the teeth of your dog already? Maybe there is something wrong with the teeth which explains the over biting behavior of the dog. Have a trip to a dental vet to take a look at those teeth.

    The vet checked her teeth and personally got to feel them lol! Nothing wrong with them other than she's being a puppy and teething. She's going to the same wood stairs and molding that Cass teethed on. Wish they made puppy Anbasol!

    Chester was too.. with those sharp puppy teeth - it's especially painful. He grew out of it.. he still though is not very gentle when you are playing with him with his toys - he'll leave teeth marks if he mistakenly gets your hand instead of the toy, then the huge yelp out of my husband or I will set him back, but the next time he's just as rambunctious. He seems to only have a really good memory when it comes to his dinner time and where his treats are
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    lol @sheila I didn't want a boy cause I didn't want him marking my whole house... in retrospect I could probably deal with that better!

    Duke had biting issues, and still to this day when we romp on the floor he will nibble on my arm when he gets over excited playing. It never hurts
    he just wants to say I love ya. Anyways........this may sound cruel........but it is a sure cure for any chewing problems. What I did was I went to Radio Shack. I bought a three volt transformer. I have a concrete unfinished basement so I have no fire safety issues. I plugged it in and left the cord on the floor.
    Weeeeeell, about 10 minutes later I hear the yapping and Duke came a running up the steps for cover....... never to chew or bite on anything more unless I give it to him.
    One bite into that cord zapped him enough to get his undivided attention and made an everlasting attitude adjustment. I unplugged the transformer and threw it away. It was the best twenty bucks I've ever spent. In retrospect I'm glad it was the transformer and not a lamp cord. He could have killed himself and burnt down the house if I hadn't interveined.

    lex was a big time biter as a pup and he grew finally grew out of it, when he did bite we would tell him no sir and spank his butt everytime. we have not had any problems with him marking ever!!!

    i think our lab is the stubborn boy in the family, well besides the bf . everytime he licks or trys to lick we thump him on the nose all he does is sneeze and go right back at it it doesnt phase him one bit. he is def the teenager in the house, he has lots of time outs during the day
