I hate to admit it but I am totally losing it with Lily. She has come so far since we got her but she refuses to stop mouthing my daughter. I feel like i've tried everything to get her to stop but nothing holds her attention that long. My little girl is 3 and loves playing with Lily but lately Lily is playing ROUGH! She broke the skin the other day and I just feel like my patience is flying out the window. Any suggestions?!?!

What have you tried so far? Toys, distractions, water guns.....?


My pup's current favorite toy is this nylaball. It's Buster's and he loves it too. They take turns stealing it from one another, and it's great for distracting the pup when he starts chewing on me.

I'm going by petco this afternoon to get him the dinosaur (they have it in flexible and durable) - so I can give Buster back his ball and he can quit pouting.

Honestly, from the very day I got Boss, any time he would mouth or nip me, I would tell him "NO" very firmly. After I'd say about a month, whenever he'd get really excited and start mouthing, I would not pull my hand or arm away, I would just be firm and tell him "NO" and he would stop. Now, he hardly ever mouths me.

The firm voice will help, either say NO! or AH HA! I yelp when she mouthed me and she has never ever tried to mouth Jamie.

True, they say making a loud sort of yelping noise or "OUCH!" startles the dog. I guess it helps them realize that when they bite it hurts! ;)

Yes I agree. Mose would mouth anyone in my house and we would say very stern "NO BITING or BE NICE" and he would stop. He is 11 months and sometimes while playing he wouldmouth and we would say be nice and instantly he stops. This training did not work over night, it took a while but you must be constant with it.
