Default I Don't Know What to Do Anymore

Okay, with the nipping.

I tried what someone else had suggested since nothing else was working.

It's where I just hold his muzzle shut until he rolls over on his belly. It actually worked for a little while and I bet it would still.

Well, today I tried it. And, he exposed his teeth and growled as he bit and gave my hand a little cut.

I don't know what to do.

I've been really considering giving him away...

Oh I'm sorry! Have you tried just ignoring him when he nips at you?

Don't give him away sweetie. If you can get through this phase you'll be so happy you did!

I tried the ignoring thing for about a week.

But it really wasn't doing anything at all.

I agree with Saje the nipping won't last forever. When he nips you just don't play with him for awhile or maybe even put him in another room for lil' while. You will get through this and he'll be the best friend you will ever have

He bit me aggressively and afterwards I disciplined him with my hand... then I just left the room tried to calm myself down before I did anything else.

AND THEN, he came behind me and just bit the crap out of my ankle. I disciplined him again.

I just left my house to calm down and now I'm here.

Yeah, we all know how frustrating it can be. He sounds like he's being a big poop. lol Have you read the articles on NILIF training? Some of those principles might really help you.

Your discipling him with your hand is actually rewarding him. Just walk away

Tried that too. He thought it was a game.
