You still have the routine of "explaining" that they do not bite YOU, but it is less frequent!
    Have you tried a water bottle-squirt? or a new rough sound-instead of NO-like QUIT! or AAAAT!? Or a can of rocks, or coins that she may not like the sound of it when you shake it? She may have heard" no" so much, that it is ignored. Spanking doesn't really do any good. A new unpleasant sound-or ignoring-I had one biter,(pup) who, if I turned my back, and told Nope, I,m NOT playing-she would just stop. That was TOO easy! Sometimes the "standard" doesn't work, and you have to get creative to see what "will" work for your pup. Good Luck! You have to figure it out soon, or you will get "NO RESPECT"!
    Sheldon responds to the ignoring turning my back and saying no I'm not playing if he growls to roughly I drop the toy and turn my back and tell him I'm not playing if your going to be mean. He gets the picture. But then again even when he sounds super mean I can kiss him on the nose.

    Without actually watching the interaction it would be hard to know, but my guess is that it may be your demeanor. Even though Ace is pretty well behaved when he does get a bit unruly or get something he shouldn't have and my wife doesn't have any success then she will call me and I can get Ace to mind. My wife is petite and gentle and seldom raises her voice and I have mentioned to her when she can't get him to mind that she needs to be more assertive, act like the boss and play the part convincingly and the dog will believe it.
    That was brought up to me by a friend also. But I get firm with her. Like when she is trying to steal my clothes (while Im folding laundry) I will have pick her up, get the clothes from out of her mouth, tell her no loudly and move her to a new location. Then of course she will do it again. So I dont think its because Im too gentle with her.

He can lay on the couch with her and she behaves. And she does not bite him!!! Me on the other hand, she constantly grabs my clothes. Plays tug of war with my sleeves, will not listed to me (unless I have food in hand) and she is always getting in to things. One thing I will say is that she will stop the biting 90% of the time if I scratch or rub on her. But I cant do that 24/7 nor should I have to. This weekend was worse than it has been in awhile. She was in time out several times. And I hate having to do that, especially since Im home with her all day and I love to keep her out. And taking her for walks is out of the question. She still hates them . She will only walk to the end of my street and then just pull for me to go back towards the house then when I give in she will try her best to run home. Im going to enroll her in doggy daycare soon so Im hoping that will help her. I really think this is a dominance thing. Cause Im the only one she fihgts with.

    Any tips
    I think she has been trained/trained you to play and do this as a part of her way to bond and play with you. Only way to stop it is to actually stop it, don't let it happen at all anymore even if it means putting her in time out, getting up from where she is at, ect.

    When she stops because you are petting her, that tells me this may be her way of communicating to you that she wants you to scratch and rub her. So what I would do is praise her when you pet and scratch her when she is not biting. But the minute she starts it you have to lay down the law. Have you tried coins in a can or canned air?

    Ya I thought maybe that she thought it was playing. But she gets really mean and angry about it sometimes. I have to pick her up and take her to her crate most of the time and she will try to nip at my face when I do this. It does not have a playful vibe to it at all.

    And yes weve tried everything I can think of except the water bottle. Im gonna try that tonight. I am really thinking its a dominance thing, since she doesnt do this to my bf at all. She wont even nip at him. And I do get firm with her, she just doesnt seem to care. She gets in this attack mode that she wont stop. If I do get my sleeves away she will grab at any body part she can. Shes so mean when she gets like that!

    @Sheena Just read alll of your comments on here. Im curious to find out if your bully got any better? My bully is 6 months and ive been experiencing THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM. I almost feel like theres no respect for me at all and Im the one that shows maximo the most attention (maybe thats why) Im thinking of calling a local in home trainer its $300 though! but im desperate!my beautiful puppy is getting impossible. I just cant keep yelling at him if hes not listening to me. He bites at my feet walks all over me on the couch and snaps at my hands to the point where i have bruises on them.

    let me know if anything worked for you?

    Hey well she will be 9 months next week and things have changed! She's calmed down. A lot! The water bottle thing did help. I'm thinking its just an age thing. That's all I can think of right now. But if something crosses my mind ill let you know!

    Ever heard of NILIF (Nothing In Life Is Free)? It might work for you here..

    Daisy is controlling the attention she gets.. She is the initiator and she's in control. The idea behind NILIF is that she needs to earn your attention and she only gets it when you say.. that puts you in control.

    It might be worth a 'google'

    I always found that being relaxed and in a firm voice say no or give out a good shriek letting her know it hurts helps.

    I gave Porkie time out this morning in the bathroom , door closed for 5 mins. I let her out not say a word. I went to the kitchen noticed she was not in the living room. I checked my room and I saw her back in the bathroom sitting there .
    Could it be Porkie's testing me?
