Sally is now 10 weeks old, and will be starting puppy classes in a few days, but I was just after a couple of tips as to how to get her to stop jumping up, biting, and pulling at clothing with her teeth. She is noticeably bigger than she was 2 weeks ago when we got her, and the bites are getting harder!
My kids tend to freak out when she jumps up on them, especially my 4-year-old, who runs away shrieking. Of course then Sally thinks that it's a game, and just goes for it harder.
I've been consistent with not allowing her to get away with jumping up, usually by saying "Sally off!" repeatedly until she does actually stop jumping, then getting her to sit, then praising her when she does. This works for about 2 seconds, when she will usually start trying to nip at my hand when I pat her. Sometimes distracting her with a toy will work, but usually she'll steadfastly ignore the toy in favour of going for my hand or my shirt. I then have to pry her jaws open to save my clothing.
When it's me she's jumping on or trying to nip, I can try ignoring her until she calms down, but when she's going for the kids I have to intervene physically.
Any tips would be appreciated, thanks!!
