Howdy: 4 month old Ava is doing very well in general with her training. She's still pretty nippy, but the bite force has diminished. Sit, down, off, come,etc, is coming along nicely. However, she has developed a recent habit of charging me and biting my pant legs ( sometimes right through the fabric...yikes), usually after a walk, once we are back in our yard. I treat our walks as a training session, and I wonder if after going around the block with me correcting her and training her, if she needs to 'blow off some steam'...but hey, it hurts, and she seems a bit out of control. I've tried 'off!' 'sit!' 'settle!' ' no!' and on the odd occasion when she's really given me a bite, I hold her down and massage her head and ears...which calms her for a few seconds, but she leaps up and back at it. I've also tried putting a stick or toy in her jaws to re-direct, which works about a 3rd of the time. Looking for insight and suggestions, as it could go toward generally stopping her from leaping and biting which occurs sometimes too, when we least expect it.
