Default Pip and is Mouthing Problems need advice please:)

Hi Guys

I have done all the basic training with Pip and he responds very well to the clicker. Though I still having problems with him mouthing, no matter what I do he still like to bite toes and hands when he wants to play. Any advice or techniques would be great! Thanks. XAttachment 20562

Honey was still play nipping at 1 - I focused on that again, and 4 months later she hardly does it. I looked up 'be a tree' - so if she bit, I would stand up, cross my arms, totally ignore her. She hates it!

As she nips when excited (normally when we have visitors she likes) she is leashed to her safe spot until she calms down and isn't too excited x

We used the replace hands and toes with a toy method starting from when they were pups. When they nip, say ouch in a tone that gets attention, and give them a toy. Do it every time he nips. Worked for us.

Try using "ouch" in a higher pitched voice than you normally use, and stop all play and ignore him for a bit. Try this every single time he does it. Eventually he'll relate it to a negative behavior that you don't approve of.

This is exactly what we did with Jaxx and it worked great.
