Does your Doberman..

Howdy,

After a vigorous session of fetch the Tennis ball at a local elementary school (after school hours, of course), as soon as Lasker gets out of the front seat of my truck, he immediately begins to bark in excitement while nipping at my heals. Does your Dobemerman nip at your heals when excited and in a playful (and maybe aggressive) mood?

Nope. And I would stop it immediately! When Tucker was a pup he learned to never put his mouth on us. We would immediately yelp & stop the play. They get the message very fast. I am sure others could tell you how to handle it. I would assume you don't appreciate his antics.

When she was a young puppy, YUP. Mac was the queen of the ankle biters.

I'm glad she grew out of that. I have a friend with a working cattle dog who tries to herd people like that. It's extremely annoying.

By the way... Hello from south Louisiana!

yep, he did. we put a stop to it. he managed to rip holes in two pairs of my partner's pants before we got him to stop.

also, i notice he gets a lot more bitey/hyper right before he's about to konk out.

When mabel gets overexcited or see's her bite pillow or flirt pole she'll start running zoomie circles and nipping from overexcitement/frustration.

It's painful and not a good habit so we put a stop to it, I now have an "ow!" command that sends her into a flying down and gives her an extreme worried face that she just broke her favorite toy.
We also take a break for some relaxing belly rubs or formal obedience training when she's going to hard and needs to tone it down. Definitely don't reinforce or let it happen or it will only escalate as much as he doesn't mean to hurt you.

Howdy,

Perhaps I was inaccurate when I said "nipping at my heels". Lasker's never actually bit me or ripped my pants or bit my shoes-but he's certainly in the neighborhood. I'll make him stop after our next Zoom & fetch session. Of course, he's 3+ years old now and it'll be an old habit I'm trying to break.
