PostSubject: Nipping   Tue 15 Jul 2014, 8:25 pm

Belle has had issues nipping since we got her, usually when she gets excited. When she nips I do a sharp intake of breath which stops her but only for a few seconds and then she does it again. A couple of weeks ago she was chasing Reuben around the field so I sat down and they both came running over and because I was playing with Reuben she nipped my arm causing a bruise

Any other ideas on how to deal with this? I don't want to be too hard on her as she is getting a lot more confident now and don't want to hinder her progress

A water spray/bottle or do you think that might be too harsh.

Or maybe a stern 'no'

I think she would be wet through. Its worse when I come in from work as they are both excited and I dont fuss them until I have been into the kitchen, put my bags down etc but as I walk through the living room she is jumping up nipping at my hands

We didn't have a very good day yesterday, a lady who I have only met once before came to my house to pick up some fishy bits I was selling and some how Belle managed to nip her nose and draw blood, I think she bent over to strike her and she jumped up and nipped her. I was mortified and thankfully the lady was OK about it.

I really need to get to grips with this and will speak to our trainer on Thursday. I have been trying to use no but when I do that she looks like someone has just beaten her up so I assume this is not a good word and could be something not too good from her past. Ah ah seems to be getting a response from her but I use that for other things so not sure if I will confuse her?

I was just going to suggest a spray bottle or water pistol just to get it stopped before she gets worse x
