Our Tegan - Only One Issue... Jumping And Nipping
by Angie M
This is our female red merle named Tegan (Irish for "good looking"). She is a wonderful addition to our family. As you can see in the picture, her favorite place to relax is over the air vent. She was born on May 8, 2010 and was about 8 weeks in this picture. She has caught on to the house training pretty well (haven't had an accident in about 2 weeks now) and is being crate trained. Only one issue, she jumps and nips hard enough to either break the skin or leave a bruise all over my legs, not to mention all of the shredded clothing. Any suggestions on how to break this habit? We've tried a spray bottle, standing like a tree, rolling her on her back, and holding her mouth shut (gently) while saying "no bite"... all to no avail. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!!
