Puppy Nibbles and Bites.

Hi all, I have a 12 week old doodle that really likes to nip at my 8 year old and 5 year olds heals. Is 3 months old a big teething time fr pups/ Oliver hasn't chewed shoes or anything he's not supposed to (yet) but he likes to nip at the kids heels and clothes. Any suggestions to get him to stop We just say NO and direct him to a che toy. Is this the thing to do and how long does it take for them to 'get it' I've never had a puppy who likes to nip so much. He nips at our inlaws dogs heels too.

Thanks, :D

We had the same problem with Cooper when he was younger (3-4 months). Is has lessened greatly,although he does still bother my 7 year old sometimes. I do think it's the dominance issue, so I try to have my son give him sit/down commands several times a day (treating afterward), and when possible I have him be the one to let Cooper outside. We also went through a jumping up phase, and with that we would give NO attention - not even a push or scolding - just turn or walk away. That seems to work good for us.
