Dogs That Keep On Biting...

Why do dogs keep on biting? She would wag her tail and then, if she sees me, she would bite me. I don't know if she's just playing or she sees me as an intruder or an enemy. I saw dogs on television that they lick their owner's face while from me, she keeps on biting. She would jump on me then, she would bite me.

Is your dog a puppy? If so she is teething and needs to bite, but not you..Make sure she has plenty of toys that are safe to chew on. And don't give them all to her at once, that would be overwhelming..Just give her a toy or two and then change the toys every couple days, she'll think she has a new toy. When she does bite you, firmly, grab her snort and with a gentle squeeze, tell her "No" firmly. It will take many times. My puppies are 9 months old and haven't bit me for a couple months now. If the dog is not a puppy, I would still use the same technique for the puppy. The saying that you can't teach an old dog new tricks is not true. You can, it'd just take a little longer.. If I think of anything else I will let you know. But having to teach not one, but two dogs to not bite, I almost feel like an expert..lol

Oh I forgot the most important..When your dog does come to you and doesn't bite, let her know that she was a "good girl" praising does wonders when training dogs..

Training a dog seems harder than it seems. Movies have very well trained dogs so if you are impressionable, you will start thinking that owning a dog is that easy. It really isn't. One would need careful patience with trying to build it up to the dog you want it to be.

Hmmm. If training a dog is hard, maybe we could hired a trainor who will train the dog, but I think its expensive.

If the dog is yours, she only wants to play with you, but she wasn't taught how. Dogs don't have hands to grab you while playing, so they use their mouths for that. If you want her to stop biting you, you must teach her that biting is not allowed. As Carmelanirel told you before, when she bites, you have to say NO firmly, and give her a toy that she's allowed to chew. It won't be easy to change her habit, but with love and patience you will succeed. How old is your dog, anyway?

She is 8 months old. Our dog is from my sister. She brought it home from her friend. She wants to have a dog and her wish came true (^_^) My sister does that. She says "no" firmly to Kiss- our dog. Now, my mom bought her a new toy to chew. Maybe, I am not that firm to command her not to bite me. Ha ha..., but now, I know what to do. Thanks for posting some of ways that I could do when dealing with our dog (^_^)

You know, IShy, dogs can feel your state of mind. If you aren't sure of what you want to do, a dog will ignore your commands and will do what she want to do. It's not enough to say NO firmly, you have to be determined, you must let Kiss know you are serious when saying NO, and you're not joking. I understood Kiss is your sister's dog, but if she lives in a family, she should respect all this family's members. This also means you and your mother, not only your sister. Now Kiss is still a puppy, but you have to start showing her the rules of the house.
