(southaven ms)

please help us! Our jack russell is biting us every time we get up from the coach, she attacks my wife all the time. we try to play with her as much as we can. We don't want to get rid of her but that is the direction we are going. We've had her for a year now and she just started this nipping and biting. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Jack nipping and biting NEW
by: James

It sounds like you haven't done much to put a stop to this and your Jack now thinks this is a game. First, I would have appropriate chew toys. When your Jack tried to bite, say firmly, "no biting" then give them the chew toy and walk away (ignore). Also, lots and lots of exercise. A tired dog won't chew. And think about taking an obedience class with your Jack. It's a good way for your dog to get some socialization and for you to get some training techniques that will help with the biting down the road.
