Default Biting

ugh, I know this comes with the puppy raising but it is getting old.
SHe gets so excited and bites. She jumps up at my sons face and my own. I keep her on her leash in the house so she doesnt really make contact.
I know she is just playing and I CORRECT her EVERY time. Will she ever get it?

My puppy does this too, more so when over excited. The only thing that works with him is to give a loud "Yelp" and turn away from him until he has calmed down and then go back to playing him. It is working and he is getting better.

The other thing I find with the mouthing thing is that he seems to do it more when he is full of energy. He never does it outside while walking so I normally take him for a walk and that also seems to calm him down. I have been told it won't last for ever and he will grow out of it.

same here but I tried to make them understand when it hurts and when it's okay. I've been putting my fingers in their mouth to play and holding their mouth, I have control, not them. I also put my fingers where it's comfortable ie front (in-between front teeth) or sideways (between front and back teeth, there is a gap).

Also like Pipster, I turn away and ignore them if their biting gets too aggressive or it hurts. Or I give them one of their numerous rawhide chews! I just got them the shoe shape one today but they love the long sticks.

my puppy bites all the time when she is excited also. We have tried the loud noises- yelping so to speak- and that doesn't phase her. The best thing so far we do is to keep her nylabones next to us and when she bites fingers we put the bone in her mouth instead. It seems to work sometimes.
There are times too when she is just too excited and just bites at us, ignoring her toys. Then we put her back in her enclosed area alone so she will calm down.
Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks.

sorry I forgot to ask-are you training your puppy also? Even as young as 2-3 months they can learn basic commands like sit and stay which will help you with the jumping.
