    Okay i have allways let my dog "bite play" with my hands, and got her trained to stop wenever i got enough. But i hear some people dont think its an good idea. :rolleyes: YouTube - Dog Lovers Anonymous: Helpful Tips Some very good tips , but then she talk about the nibbles. I might want to add she never play this way with anyone else then me and my sister, but then again i dont want it to be a scary experience for some kid or dogfobia grown ups. :D

    Better safe than sorry. Any dog should be trained that it is never OK to put its teeth on a human.

    100% agree.

    If you are trying to train her not to bite but miss out even ONE opportunity to correct her it can have a lasting effect.
    It's not worth the risk so if I was in your shoes I would stop it right now because of something went wrong you would never forgive yourself.

    Okay thanks. I´ll begin with rope only play now. Was so fun to wrestle with the dog though. :S
     
  5. I agree with the others, a little nibble could one day turn into a full blown bite, and the dog wouldn't think she was doing anything wrong, cause you never corrected her.

    There's lotsa other fun things you can do with her! :)

    Good luck.
