I'm truly loving my little one like crazy but at the same time, he loves to nip and nip and nip! especially my toes and the hems of my pj pants. i say a firm "no bite!" then give him a chew toy and say, "yes bite". i find myself doing this A LOT! it seems to work for a little while, then he'll "test" me and we start all over again.
what have you guys done to stop the nipping and biting? i'm trying to be consistent and persistent with this b/c obviously, i don't want him biting anyone.
Those pictures are darling!!! Feet are fun because they move and have a great smell (to dogs). Sounds like you are doing the right thing, maybe add a yelp like Tate is hurting you. They do grow out of this stage but some take longer than others!
Aawww .. he is just too cute!!
Consistency is the key ... you just have to keep doing the same thing over and over again!! Eventually he will grow out of it!
A frozen wet wash cloth works, numbs the teething part, other than that all the above information. and this to shall pass! lol
this got locked by mistake so i am unlocking it.
I looked up a hundred different things to try to get Brodie to stop biting my pants legs and hands. The only thing that worked, for a while, was put pennies in an empty coke can and shake it once when he would bite and say "no bite" I only had to actually shake the can twice. When he would look like he would bite again I would say "no bite" and he wouldn't do it. But now after about a month of him not biting at all he starting up a little again. LOL so not sure exaclty how well that worked.
If it worked once, then I would try the can again ... he's probably forgotton about it and now is teething which is why he's started to bite again. I would certainly give the coins in a can another chance!!!
@KMARINO--i just gave him a frozen washcloth and he liked it for a little while...will keep trying...
@melanieian--i'm trying the coins in a jar technique right now and he looked so started when i rattled the coins. i guess that's the whole idea?it seems to be working for now. i just don't want to scare him . I did it twice just now and he backed away and now he's fast asleep!
LOL...yea I know that is why once I got his attention with it I didn't do it anymore. I tried soooo many different things. Good luck keep us updated and if you try anything else that works let me know!
