What kind of scolding?

When Henry was a little baby and wanted to bite, I'd let out a loud "Ouch!" and say "No bite!"  That seems to have stopped it.  Sorry, that's all I know.  Maybe Liz can help, she's the best! :wink:

Why is he biting?  Are they playing with him or does it just come out of the blue?  Is it a certain area in the house where it occurs or is it just where ever?  Is it when they enter the house?  Is it in your house or when you are out for a walk or in different territory? Think of when it happens and let us know the circumstances.  We need that to assess why this is happening.

Well, depends on what they are doing to make him want to play. Is he doing it in an aggressive manner or by playing?

Dogs will sometimes bite a person if they come at them with their hand out too quick. Or like Guido, he'll jump if someone comes in with their hands up in the air because he thinks they have something.

I think this is a question for Liz. So we'll see what she says.

I need more info to give you an answer.  How are you/they playing with him?  Rough?  Aggressive?  When does he ho it?  To whom?  What kind of scolding is he getting?  Are you giving him corrections or punishments?

Please give me as much info as possible so that I may help you.

the type of scolding we give him is we tell him no bite and look right into his eyes .He then goes into his kennel and lays down knowing he has done wrong
