"hit her on her nose"? Please dont ever hit your dog.

When ever shadow used to try and bite me (only in a playful way never agressively) I would immediately stop playing with her, tell her "no bite" and ignore her. If she did what your dog did, I would have told her "no bite" and put her in the kitchen for a time out. This method worked for me. But it doesnt work for everyone. Some people suggest putting bitter apple spray on their hands, and other things. I cant advise you on other methods as I have not used them. My method worked for me. I am sure you will get many more responses with advise on how to stop this behaviour. Try using the search button, type in "biting", you may find some helpful info on here already.

Well the problem is that ignoring a dog when he's growling because you're doing something he doesn't like is not going to make them stop the behavior.

thats why I said the method worked for me, Ive only used it when shadow was nipping playfully, she's never growled at me. So thats why I said this may work for me but not others.
