As some you know, we got our first family pet on Christmas. It's going great, he is training ok, sweet dog, my 11 year old daughter is thrilled with him. That said, he has been nipping at hands ,boots,etc. I know it's normal puppy behavior, but it drew a speck of blood on my daughter yesterday & now she seems timid to play with him, which I don't want-
I have told her to say "no bite" and redirect him, but any other suggestions would be welcome.
Is hold his mouth closed (gently) and saying "no bite" or something ok? He is normal I know (playful & frolics ),but don't want to start a bad habit either
