Training Questions About Australian Shepherd Puppy Nipping and How Much Walking Is Too Much


My 8 week old Australian Shepherd relentlessly nips at my (or other peoples') feet and legs. I try to provide her with distractions and more appropriate things to chew, and she is only momentarily distracted. Any suggestions?

We live on a ranch (not training her for herding) and are able to get out for long walks. Even at just 8 weeks, she has lots of stamina to walk up to 1.5 miles several times a day. Is is possible to walk a young Aussie too much?

My Aussie / Siberian Husky can walk forever lol as long as they're getting enough water they should be fine.
