This is just like Koda and my husband too! Sometimes me...but not as often. I agree with what someone else said, when the excitement starts to escalate bring her back down to a calmer state and resume the controlled play. Try not to let her get to that point. Also work on training while playing. Keep her focused on other things. Sometimes they just get bored with their toy and start trying to get your attention and play with them so that is their way of telling you (not acceptable but they dont know that). So have treats on hand and pick up training if they start getting to the bitey/jumpy point. It has worked so far with Koda, you need to keep at it until it is a complete habit. So once it starts working - keep doing what you are doing, dont become lax about it, they will revert back - we learned from experience LOL. We will keep it going much longer this time!

We used it. It was effective, sometimes it's hard to get the spray mechanism to work right away. Our experience is that the lemon juice works better.

Just about everyone who goes to our obedience school have used it. Both my teacher and the owner have very accomplished obedience dogs. They know what they are doing. I understand a lot of people disagree here. Been down that road before. I notice that many post about their biting dogs who are nearly a year old, and have had little success with other methods.

A biting 50 lb dog, and small children is a dangerous mix. Our choice was to nip it in the bud. If It hurt her feelings to spray lemon juice in her mouth....well, that's just too bad. The safety of our kids is more important.

I agree it's just play, but puppy needs to learn how to play with humans. I suggest firm, loving, but persistent correction......it will stop as she gets older.

I have checked the safety of binaca and it's safe for my dog. (It probably causes cancer in California, though.) I haven't checked the lemon juice. (But you buy it at the grocery store for human consumption, so...)

But seriously, I'm very nice to my dog.

I realize there are many points of view on how to handle puppy biting, but so far, I've had two experienced vets, two trainers, my breeder (who is also a very experienced obedience judge) tell me "no teeth on the skin." No exceptions. This came as a surprise to me, because I had read an Ian Dunbar book prior to picking up the puppy, and tried his methods for a while. Needless to say, my hands looked like hamburger after a while. In addition, my kids were afraid to be in the same room with her. Everyone I have spoken to about this, other than people on this forum, has said Dunbar's advice on this is outdated.
