Aussy, is a male Australian Shepherd from Drammen, Norway. The photo is taken at his favorite place near the water. He loves to swim and he always carries a tennis ball with him. He's fantastic with the ball, runs and catches it in the air. When Aussy eats his dinner he also includes the ball (the ball gets hungry too!) Aussy is very friendly and kind to people and animals. He lives with two cats and he loves to shepherd them.

Nipping and Biting

Creating what’s called “bite inhibition” is an important part of training your dog. This means teaching her not to bite when playing. When dogs play fight with each other, they usually nip at each other – their coat provides protection and makes them tough enough to handle it. But those same nips applied to bare human skin can be quite painful. Dogs don’t realize this until you teach them.

There are two kinds of problem biting. One is the kind of nipping caused by a lack of bite inhibition, which is particularly common with puppies but can persist with older dogs if it isn’t trained out early. The other type is aggressive biting – this can be really dangerous. We’ll touch on both types here.


Puppies nip – it’s a natural behavior. Pups use their mouths the way we use our hands. Just as we learn at an early age that are hands are for grabbing, picking up and playing, puppies learn to do all these things with their mouths and teeth. It’s just a matter of adjusting how much pressure they use and stopping them from nipping certain things – like your hands.
