1 yr old Schnauzer: stop biting, stop jumping!!!!

Post by JFinger7 » Mon, 29 Jul 1996 04:00:00



my female Schnauzer will not stop biting. I've tapped her under the chin,
said no agressively, put her on her back in a *** hold. you name
it, I've tried it. She has a very strong disposition. when you hold her
mouth after she nips, say no firmly them let go.. she snaps at your hand.
she also will not stop jumping. I tried puting my knee softly  in her
chest with a firm no but she is CONTROLLING ME!!!!
HELPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

Here is a remedy that has worked for us.  We have a Shepherd/Husky who is
6 months old.  She is yet a juvenile and behaves quite the same way.  She
only "bits" me.  She does not do this with my wife or daughter but does
with my son.  What I believe is the case is this, I am the one who brought
her home, generally plays with her, and trains her.   My son participates
more so than my wife and daughter.  She I believe is responding with the
same actions as though we are her litter mates.  When she plays with a
friends 6 month old female retriever they grab each other around the neck
area playfully and "HARD".  I've simply made the biting activity (she's
actually grabbing) as painful for her as it is for me by squeezing her
mussel firmly until she begins to whine.  I then admonish her to stop
biting by saying no firmly.  By the way, as with most juveniles
persistence pays off.  I do persist until she submits.  It has gotten much
better over the past several weeks.   Other than this one issue she is a
real sweetheart with a great balanced personality.
