    Looks like you've gotten lots of great advice already. The good thing is that it is just a stage, and they do outgrow it.
    I have 6 kids in my family all under the age of 6, they are all cousins, and the 6 year old is my grandson, who is at my house very often. I didnt want my guys nipping or biting the kids, so I made sure right from the beginning that I handled their ears, I put the heel of my hand in their mouths, I gave them treats and then took them away from them, the same with their food dishes, I would take away their food while they were eating and then put it back, and I would touch their toys and take them away while they were playing with them. I did this because I wanted them to be used to the kids, and if the kids were to touch them while they were eating, or touch their food, they wouldn't bite them. I also wanted them to be used to kids if they touched their toys. I trimmed their nails and brushed them from day one as well so they were used to it, and now they dont mind. I can put my hand in their mouths and take anything out of their mouths, and they never bite me. I also made sure to teach the kids to respect animals, and to be kind to them, I taught them that animals are living creatures and they feel pain just like they do, that you have to be kind and gentle. I also showed them how to give a treat with a flat palm, rather than with their fingers so they couldn't grab their little fingers when they gave a treat, and I would make the dogs sit nice before they got a treat. When my guys were puppies and they would nip and I would take their mouth in my hand and gently push their face to the floor and say NO Bite in a firm voice. It didn't take very long before they stopped nipping.

    These are our kids, my Grandson, my nieces, and my nephews. They are all cousins.

    You have such a sweet family. Ya I have searching a lot for new stuff as my girl Mia barks and can and drinks the water from spray bottle. So I think I am going to do the mouth in the hand. So do I take my hand in a C grabbing top of nose and bottom jaw and push to floor? ?? Not sure😕 lol

    Yes, when she nips or bites you, take your hand in a C shape around her mouth and gently but firmly push her face to the floor and in a firm voice say No Bite, Gentle, just repeat it every time, and she will eventually stop. It didn't take very long for our two guys to stop biting.

    Thank you I tried right now and she went ballistic. Kicking her back legs and trying to get out of it. I think once she gets the hang of what I'm trying to do she will stop right?
