Hey everyone. I need some help. I have a 6 month old puppy, Abby (Got her when she was 8 weeks) and have raised her in a very loving enviroment. We have been through the basic obedience classes and we are now moving on to advanced obedience classes. My problem however isn't being resolved. My Abby is a BITER! She grabs my ankles holds on and bites away. HARD!!! She also jumps up at my face and other limbs trying to bite me. None of the methods I've been trying is working. She is very head strong. I've tried re-directing, "good girling" when she stops, pronged collars, "NO"ing and rewarding when she stops, yelping, "time outs" and still nothing is working. I love her so very much but am very frustrated. Has anyone had similar problems? Can anyone offer me any help or suggestions? I just don't know what else to do and am getting so tired of being her chew toy. I really want to start enjoying our time together instead of it always being a battle. I lost my first Dobie in September to bone cancer which almost killed me and never had these issues with her.
