Nipping
by: Donna

You need to bring in a positive-reinforcement trainer to help you with this behaviour.

But, in the meantime, start by yelling 'ow' in pain. When he stops, tell him 'good boy'. If he tries again, turn away from him while saying' ow'. When he stops trying to nip, turn back to him and say 'good boy'.

If he continues, walk out of the room and close the door. When he seems to have settled, go back in the room and tell him 'good boy'.

Follow this up with excellent follow-up with Dr. Sophia Yin
