6 Month Old Female Aussie Turns On Me
My purebred Australian Shepherd is ending the teething process. She is extremely mouthy at times. She focuses well on long walks but sometimes will stop and go full force at nipping me HARD. Not sure why she turns on me, but she can be relentless! She gets 3 mile-5 mile walks per day and a lot of people-attention. She is very smart and well exercised. She can be sweet, and at times very bossy or unprovoked mean where she bites hard. What is the difference between herding and attacking? And how can I get this under control. She does not nip strangers, just ME :)
