    Why does dog nip at my hands??

    Sometimes when I'm walking my dog he will get excited and nip at my hands as we walk...it's weird. I ask too because I saw a pitty do this once. Does yours do the same??

    Mine really don't do it, no. I would stop the walk when he does that, it's really not fun for you I am sure. ;)

    My pit mix only mouths in play, I'm trying to put a stop to that. In my experience, it's a dog thing, not a breed-specific thing.

    It doesn't really hurt but I should stop him from doing that then. He just gets really excited when we go out..so he'll nip me down the hall way to the front door. Thank you

  6. Take a chew toy with you, and the moment he tries to nip, give it to him. Mines doesn't nip my hands but nips the leash. I tell him to leave then I offer him a tug toy. He takes it and we continue walking. In fact, he walks better when he has a toy in his mouth.

    Try making him sit every time he tries to mouth at you when he's on the lead. It'll give him something else to do, kind of a distraction.. Or a swat on the nose would work as well. I tap Bentley on the nose with a NO BITE that he understands.. Actually, come to think of it, I trained NO BITE when we play fetch so he doesn't try to grab at the toy before I'm ready for him to have it.
