    There's a bit about Bite Inhibition here.
    Raising A Puppy | Dog Star Daily

    And loads and loads of other stuff about puppy training.

    My fav dog guru does this with her dog: No response at all. If he bites - she just freezes up, stops moving, stops being fun.

    I sort of do that. But if the biting is persistant and painful - I start to gently push, and I keep pushing until the dog tries to spit me out, then I count 1 and let her spit me out. Takes all the fun out of chomping on me.

    There's quite a few Dallies in agility. They don't usually win but they have a lot of fun.

    It looks normal to me, Nala is unsure but she isn't showing any form of aggression. Her tail is wagging and her hackles aren't up.

    That being said I know a few dogs whose hackles go up when they are super excited :S
    Owning a dog should be a partnership. Much like a good marriage it should be based on love, trust and devotion until death do you part.

    I need to post some more videos because I have no idea what is gental play and what isnt.... Gus does not seem to mind her at all he just keeps going back for more, he sometimes bowls him over but once again he doesnt mind and his never hurt, she doesnt squish him or anything.
