Frustrating, isn't it? lol
I had the same issue breaking Gucci, because some of my kids wouldn't stop her from nipping so it took longer to break her of it.
When we are playing with toys and she gets too rough or *careless* I use the term "easy" and stop and tell her "no bite", she does understand this now, because if she doesn't take it down a notch after "easy". I would drop the toy and walk away. The kids are doing the same thing. Yay. Progress.
I posted a thread on this awhile back and got lots of great suggestions. Did you read my thread? I think it was called "Nipping" too.
I also would firmly hold her and say "NO bite" and I would sometimes *yelp* like I was hurt, Her reaction to that was really cute, she would start licking the place I was hurt. lol
They are adorable and hard to get mad at.
But continue to try to get EVERYONE on board with the same program. I told my kids "the trainer said this" and the "trainer said that". They were much more willing to do things the "trainer said" than me. Argh! kids! lol
