Default New Boxer Parents

Hi everyone! We got our new boxer baby 3 weeks ago. She is now 11 weeks old and has completely adjusted to our new home. She is the perfect puppy in terms of behavior and potty training so we are thrilled. However, I am having an issue with her "play biting" me. It is not aggressive but with her little teeth it hurts. She does not do this to my boyfriend, just me. I am very firm and tell her NO when she does it and immediately give her a toy to chew on instead. Any other advice??

A few things you can try... But which ever you pick! Be consistent.
1, get up and walk away, wait a few minutes and then play again. She will figure out quickly that if she uses her teeth her human will leave No need to say anything at all! Remember at this point "no" is attention!

2, Yip! .. yep thats right Yip nice and loud.... This teaches bite inhibition better... we want them to learn to soft mouth so that they have control. I often teach my pups this before no mouthing at all. So If I was teaching her how to soft mouth.. I would allow her mouth to make contact but as soon as I felt a little pressure I would "yippe" and as time goes on.. she gets the hang of it.. less and less pressure is accepted. Hope this makes sense lol.. Im so much better at explaining in live conversations lol.

That makes complete sense! Thank you. I have tried walking away from her and noticed that it did help so I will stick to that method. Like I said, it isn't an aggressive biting but I want to nip the habit now before it gets worse.
