    I think it's great all your questions and you've been on here for quite sometime, your dedication to researching a bullie is very admirable and I think you'll be a great bullie owner!! You can always use the advanced search before posting as a lot of topics have been discussed over the years in threads, just type in important key word(s).

    "Horsing around" w/a puppy's play-bite is something to be cautious of for future discipline and aggression issues. Teaching puppies not to bite is essential for a future well behaved dog. Lots and Lots of toys to chew, no hands, no feet, no furniture…lol

    I've found you can't ask too many good questions! I agree with @NewEnglandBully. Any play "biting" might lead to problems later. I would substitute a toy so he can learn his limits.

    We have always discouraged play biting/mouthing with our own dogs and especially the rescues. If any of them attempt to mouth a hand or foot the the appendage is withdrawn from play immediately followed with "NO Bite!" If it continues, play time is over. On rare occasion we have to introduce a spray bottle to discourage.

    This is not to say that all play biting will lead to something undesirable later in life. It may not, but we cannot take that chance. Since we rescue we have to give each dog the best possible chance at being rehomed and a mouthy rescue is automatically limited to homes with no kids. Additionally, our own dogs have a lot of face to face contact working the OTR kissing booth during fund raisers and a mouthy Bully cannot work the booth.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Gang has you covere.... I agree, always place a toy in his mouth and if you do get some teeth... give a good NO or an ouch... they learn from that as well.
