ALL PLAY STOPS OR PETTING. Put her back with the litter or with the adults. They will teach her…... Advantage of having littermates and adult dogs in the house.
And this is exactly why puppies need to be at least 10 weeks before they go to their new homes. They learn so much from their mom and the litter mates at this time - bite inhibition is one of these things.
I agree! I brought Spencer home at eight weeks, and I will wait another 2-4 weeks next time. Spencer was a play-nipper, because he simply didn't understand that his teeth were hurtful. I started shrieking in pain (not always pretending!) and withdrawing whenever he would nip, and he would stop and stare at me in total puzzlement. Soon, all I had to do was scream "Owww!", shake my hand like it hurt and stop playing. Luckily, he caught on quickly.
ROFLMAO, bitey might be the call name. I of course have Cara who had a gazillion play mates and adult B's and she still is the single most mouthy creature I have ever owned. As I have posted, she often went to sleep with her mouth wrapped around my arm or hand rubbing me with her tongue. And I didn't get her til 12 1/2 wks of age.
That said, yeah, most of the time the pack puts an end to the mouthiness and immediate "NO TEETH" and ignore helps.
