    Hi Chris,

    Here is a link to a previous thread that may be helpful

    Working on giving her appropriate outlets for her nipping throughout the day especially when kids are present. Chews like Kong’s, bully sticks, marrow bones are great distractions and can fulfill the need to grab on the kids. Also making sure the children and anyone else in the house is not encouraging rough play by wrestling or using their hands in play.

    This behavior will get better with time. Remember to be patient , exercise her and redirect often.

    Make sure you are troubleshooting the triAngle:

    Use the proper attitude,( see layer 3 of the triAngle. )
    Follow good leadership exercises ( layer 5)
    Relieve restless spirit using proper outlets ( tug, ball, bones, bullysticks etc)

    Keep us posted on your progress!
