  1. Dog Mouthing Behaviour

    General Dog Forum
    So, I have always been fascinated by mouthing behaviour in dogs and why they do it. Obviously, 'mouthing' is different from 'biting' in the sense that their intentions are completely different (though I can't tell you how many clients have panicked and messaged me saying their dog is biting and...
  2. Bite inhibition questions

    Dog Training Forum
    Just a little info- we have two adults and 7 kids ranging from 3-almost 14. I read about bite inhibition and thought it sounded great. I explained it to my husband and the 10+ aged kids, and we all agreed it made sense. But we're coming across some obvious:doh: problems. 1. Dh has calloused...
  3. Dog Playing Too Rough

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi! About a week ago we adopted a basset hound/german shepherd mix. We got him from the shelter, he had come in as a stray. He is about 2 and neutered. Most of the time he is a real sweetheart. He is taking well to potty training. However, he likes to jump and play and mouth while we are...

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi, everyone I desperately need some training help with my puppy. My husband and I adopted a German Shepherd/Lab/Husky/We-don't-know-what in December when he was about two months old.

  5. How to Stop Play-biting on Human Skin?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi! My puppy has been nipping us quite a lot. :( Sometimes it doesn't hurt but sometimes she does bite us hard. Any advice to stop or lessen it? I tried yelping and yelling "ouch" but it doesn't work with her. She just gets more excited and bite harder. I also tried touching her nose but that...

  8. Questions about Mouthing?

    Dog Training Forum
    A couple of weeks ago I adopted a eight month (what I believe it is) Sheltie mix. I quickly learned that he has a bit of a mouthing problem. I have two toddlers running around the house and would linked this to stop. He stops when we tell him no, but then he gets frustrated and rolls around on...
  9. Strange behavior

    General Dog Forum
    My dog is extremely sociable 1 year old, loves people, loves other animals, and follows me every step of the way. He listens well, and is very confident. This kind of ties in with the speculation I have about his interesting behavior. When I call him up onto the bed (He's only allowed with...
