    Angry I absolutely HATE Remi (at night)

    Auuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh. Okay, so I adore Remi (16 weeks). You guys know that. Most of the time he is pretty epic and totally sweet. I have gotten through the biggest emotional hurdles I think. However, at night... I absolutely loathe his personality. He is super hyper and tries to bite us and hump us all night long. I know he's going through his dominant stage, but it's a killer!! He will bite and latch on. You basically have to pry him off of you and sometimes blood is drawn. He can be distracted with a toy. But honestly, the only thing there is to do at this stage is not sit on the floor with him. Else he'll just keep coming for you regardless of showing him a new toy, ignoring him, or putting him on his side. I'm at the point where I don't feel like he's safe around children. My father in law was playing with him today, and he bit him so hard in the throat that blood started dripping. I felt terrible!!!!The severity of the injuries are getting worse, but the nighttime hyperness is not lasting as long as it was a couple of weeks ago. I just really hate that I can't cuddle with him right now. I just can't trust him not to nip the crap out of me or someone else. Any other tips you have, let me know! Else I'm just correcting him with a toy and getting the hell out of dodge!

    Pennies in a can. Shake real loud and yell "NO". There is a video on here somewhere. Let me see if I can find it.

    Pennies in a can (or nuts & bolts) work great and it cuts down on your frustration of yelling at him. It worked wonders for me when Wilson and Jack were younger. Jack still doesn't like the can. Shake the can and say NO. You also try a spray bottle and squirt him. Hey what's a bit of water? Works for Wilson and Jack too, not so much with Emma as she welcomes the water and hopes it ends up in her mouth. If he humps or nips you can also grab an area of the nap of his neck and push him off and with a very stern NO. Good luck!

    Until I can get Sheila here....another thing is clanging pot lids together to stop the behavior.

    Got it. So basically scare the crap out of him.

    The nape of the neck and a firm no works wonders any other time - but something about the time right before bed he is a total nutcase. It's funny because we use the jar/change for our cats, but it never occurred to us for the dog. Duh! Thanks guys.

    Lola used to get all riled up at bedtime..i called it crazy eyes. i agree with everyone else that the nipping is a problem that hasto be dealt with directly but in general..you've got to wear them out way before bedtime!!! i mean playing fetch for an hour then a walk then some more fetch then bedtime. crazy eyes used to make me cry butprevention is key

    I roll Gizmo or Hershey onto their backs, and basically hold them there for a few minutes, to assert my dominance in the 'pack' they will submit, and just wait until they have, count to 20 AFTER you think they have submitted (stopped squirming) if they start up again, REPEAT. They are trying to set Dominance... and YOU are the pack leader.

    When I roll them over, my forearm is on their bellies and my hand is up by their throats, FIRM but not Forceful. Just like a dominate member of a pack would do (watch the Discovery Channel, wild dogs in Africa etc :p) I also 'nip' at their butts (little pinches) when they are getting that way. They soon learn who's boss (Gizmo is giving me that, 'Yea right, you are the boss look, right now' LOL )

    @ModernFemme , You should consider taking him for an evening walk. They sleep most of the day and at nite they get a little "crazy". Walking lets them drain some of that energy and lets them concentrate on the walk and the smells. As for the nipping or bitting , what I did with Mocha when she went through that stage was remove her from us by putting her in her crate for a time out. I would firmly say NO ,then I would pick her up and into the crate. After about 8 minutes I would let her out. I didnt say "oh am sorry, you be a good girl now" I just simply opened the crate and she would come out on her own. Do not allow people to put their faces in his face either, very dangerous cause they will jump up and nip. Of course if you have little kids, all play with the dog needs to be supervised and teach your kids also to not play with the dog as the dog is not a toy. It takes time to train a dog just like it takes time and energy with toddlers.
