Leash Training & Play Biting
I would appreciate any advice concerning leash training and nipping play biting in the bud (no pun intended) My 3 month old Dobie-girl, Casey, is very intelligent and pretty shy. When she plays she gets excited and starts with the biting. I've tried every humane technique I've heard of but she doesn't quit for more than a few minutes. She especially goes after my 7-year-old daughter. She probably thinks of her as a littermate.
The other problem is trying to leash train her. I've had dogs before but never had a sitter--not a puller. Off leash in the yard she stays right with me and doesn't leave our property. It's wonderful! But I love going for long walks. The second I put a leash on her she sits down and refuses to budge. I've tried waiting it out, tempting her with treats and toys, using the Gentle Leader harness---nothing works. She starts trembling like she's scared. Breaks my heart.
Sorry for the lengthiness. Any help would be fabulous!!!
