When Amy first came here at 8 weeks she started almost straightaway jumping up in Baileys face like loads of pups do licking and nipping at his mouth.

Trouble is she is now nearly 15 months and she's still doing it - he tells her off and we stop her but she keeps doing it?

Also if one of us comes back in to the house instead of greeting us she runs straight to Bailey and does the constant mouthing at him. He's never got nasty with her but we can see when he tells her off he is getting serioulsy p'd off with it.

Any ideas on why she does it still or how to help him out a bit and get her to stop - she knows it's wrong because I only have to look at her and she runs off like a naughty pup would. But by then she's done the damage - he constantly has little scratches on his mouth.

This to me seems like the behaviour of wolves in the pack.
When the alpha returns the younger members of the pack will lick and nip around the mouth to regurgitate food
As far as i know it is also a greeting on the return of a pack member that they do this.
Are yours seperated when they go out? to which is the reason why she does it again to him once you return home.

Agree with the above or is it that she is excited and wants him to make a move thus encouraging him to get animated when you enter the room, etc.
