At 12 weeks Kacie is doing great but we're looking for guidance about how to stop her biting us. We'll be sitting in her pen with her, playing with toys or training, when she decides to start biting, usually wrists/arms/feet/hair but sometimes also lunges at faces. She doesn't seem aggressive, just playful. It's almost as if she thinks our bodies are just another toy. When playing outside, she will at times bite boots/pant legs/shoelaces/jacket (jumping up to reach jacket).
We've tried distracting her with a toy, yelling ouch, pulling lower lip gently over teeth so that she's biting her lip, leaving her alone. She will let go if we put a treat by her nose. So far nothing seems to prevent the biting.
A friend suggested spraying her in the face with water while yelling NO. Is that a good idea?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
