Default Please help! Fiesty pup is biting too much.`

My Lola is doing normal puppy biting (or at least we think it's normal). The threads i Have read say to redirect with a toy, tell no, ignore, etc. However, she just made my lip bleed She was in my arms and on her way back to her xpen for dinner. She was all rowdy from playing and started that adorable growl of hers when she nipped my lip. She was just so fiesty and fired up. Nothing we are doing is working. We have had her 8 days now and that isn't enough time to be consistant but this hurt. We play with her a lot and she isn't pinned up all day so [I]'m not sure what to do. Just keep doing what we are doing? She just gets SO excited and fiesty!

when ours did that, I let out a high pitch squeal, put her down, then walked away so she thinks you are boring. oh! and it's those darn puppy teeth. also, when you carry her to her pen, try holding her closer to your stomach so she can't get to your face until she gets a bit calmer/ or loose the baby teeth. my 1 yr old (we have only had since janurary), will do that because she feels the air on her face and thinks it feels funny. but she is learning to kiss instead of bite.

Haha. I've had that happen. She didn't mean it. Be patient and in a high pitched voice, yelp when she bites. I know it sounds crazy, but they know that yelping means hurt. She'll look at you strange, then continue to try to play & when she starts to bite, yelp again. Consistency is definitely key.

If the 'yelping' doesn't work, and sometimes it makes it worse, just say nothing, put her in her pen/crate and leave her be alone. She wants you! If she has to be alone for a few minutes to calm down, so be it. Maybe you can say 'calm down' when you put her away for awhile, good. Just be consistent. Bilting is a puppy thing, and the quicker she learns that biting only brings being alone, good.

Thanks y'all! She just has so much energy and wants to play like we are her litter mates! I know it's perfectly normal, but I also don't want to get bit like that again.

Finn was a feisty little bugger when I first got him. He would bite while playing all the time. It took awhile but after doing the yelping thing and replacing any rough play with a toy to use instead he finally knows biting people is unacceptable. Just be patient and stick with it. Make sure that everyone in the house goes along with the plan. If your chi can rough house with one person then they'll think its still okay to do with everyone.

Vader did that slot and got my lip good too. if we picked him up for lap time and he did that he went to the floor to settle down. He still does that occasionally and we do the same thing. Just trying to be consistent with him. I hope you find other answers that will help. I always said no bite and put him down. Now just saying no bite calms him most of the time if he gets that way. Best of luck.
