LMAO Ok I know we all hate the stereotype of chi's being ankle biters...but I just have to ask -- anyone else have them?

Bryco and Asia are just the absolute worst. They go NUTS trying to bite our feet when we get home. Asia hasn't quite learned its not OK yet and OMG she will latch on like there's no tomorrow to our socks, and we have to sit with our feet up on the couch b'c otherwise all of a sudden there is a puppy or a Bryco having an absolute nom on your foot.

HAHAHA so when they call them ankle biters, there is not much I can say :p BC MINE ARE!

LOL! Sometimes the stereotypes are true :D

Mine don't, thankfully. My roommate has pugs though, and THEY are BAD! I can't walk through the room without one or the other of them latching on to my pants leg for dear life. I routinely drag them as I cross the room because they're like pirhanas, they just WON'T LET GO!

LOL, No don't have an ankle biter. Sometimes when leila is hyped up she will bark at my feet as i walk through the room. Which is annoying bc i'm always afraid i'm gonna kick her face. lol ;)
Hmm I guess you could carry a squirt bottle around or can of pennies. Can't think of anything else, hopefully some one can chime in.

My toy fox will run behind us when we get home and put her front paws into the back of our knees, which makes you lose your balance. She also chases my kids feet and nips at their heels but never actually gets them. The chi's just run around in circles and yap when anyone comes home, no biting though, its the only time they ever bark lol.

No, mine are not ankle biters. Chibi will rub on my foot like a cat or try to pat at it and play with it if I have it hanging over the couch. The only thing Yoshi will do is if he wants something and I am walking he will run up and touch the back of my leg or ankle for attention :)

Well, Bruiser doesn't interact much at all and Peach will bite onto my husband's socks as he walks through the kitchen. But never me. I am not sure why because his feet are the only ones she jumps on. I think he sort of shuffles and doesn't want to step on them. Per Susan when I got Maya, she said to just walk and they will learn to get out of your way. I do that and they don't ever do that to me. It sounds like yours are playing though, so maybe a stern 'no' as you stop moving and no attention until they stop? Peach gets a lot of attention for this from my husband so... you know how that goes.

Chloe has been know to run and nip at strangers feet when they come in our house, a firm "no" and clap hands and she stops. I used to have a min-pin that was really bad, but it was always with people she didn't know.

Bella used to bite the end of my sweats all the time and whip her head back and forth. I'd be walking and I'd practically be dragging her along. She doesn't anymore really though. But Izzie will bite Bella's ankles all the time.. lol.

I'm embarrassed to say that Brody has been known to be an ankle biter to strangers. Once when a repairman came to the house. He barked and barked and then ran behind him and nipped at his heels. Luckily he had on big leather boots!! And I'm glad he didn't know he did it. And then recently the meter reader was in the backyard right when I let Brody out. I had no idea he was out there. Well Brody charged down the steps and then started yapping and trying to bite his ankles. Luckily the guy just hopped over the fence to the next yard while I was yelling at Brody to LEAVE IT. He didn't leave it. :( He's so bad.

Pedro goes a bit higher up, on the calf...And only to one person - my son.

It's not a puppy thing, he's 3, and he will never do it with Colby watching him - he always does it while he's walking away from him. He doesn't bite hard, and sometimes he just gets pants, but it makes for interesting visits. He knows he isn't supposed to do it, and if I'm watching him, he won't. It's the second I turn my back that he nabs him!

Poor little Bryco! All his secrets are coming out!
