Nibbling

My chins still nibble on my hands when I play with them? Is there any way to break them of this?

Mine do this to me too. Sometimes they get overly excited and groom my hands. At times they can bite too hard but they don't mean it. If they bite too hard I lightly blow on them. It really hasn't broken the habit but they stop temporarily.

Nibbling is what a chin does when he grooms another chin. This is a compliment to you. I wouldn't discourage it unless he is hurting you. If he is hurting you just blow gently in his face like Denise said.
