Default How can I stop the "ankle biting"?

Pearl has begun to bite at my feet (shoes or bare feet) and pants legs whenever I walk. It is painful, annoying, and dangerous for her. I am afraid I am going to step on her! Can anyone advise me on methods to stop this behavior? I have tried the Bitter Apple, but it didn't even slow her down. She does not respond to "no" either. I need help keeping my little angel from turning into a little brat!

LOL! That's how I taught my 3 to stop with the barking already! Occasionally a super soaker would come in handy though.

I'm going to try the water gun! Jasmine does the same to me and not only is it annoying, but I am so afraid I'm going to step on her. Nothing else has worked - saying no or no bite has absolutely no effect. Going to Walmart tomorrow for sure!!

Water guns work wonders!!!!!!! Paris used to sit and yap yap yap at the window when she would sit in it, after a few days of squirting she stopped and I haven't had any problems since. Good luck!
