My husband and I have a wonderful, beautiful golden color labradoodle. However, Max likes to bite, nip and growl at me. ( I am very bruised.) He doesn't do this much with my husband, just me. He is playing I know, because all the while his tail is wagging. I have been reading all the resonses from this site for a while now and thought maybe someone could help me. I have tried saying "ouch" real loud, he thinks this is fun, so bites again, I tried holding his snout gently and saying " no bite" very firm. No luck. When I hold him by the gruf (sp) and make him sit, he does this, then he will lay down and roll over on his back for a belly rub. Please help! :shock: I am not sure what to do.
