Puppy bites my older dog....alot

I figure this this is just playing. . . .but my 2mth old puppy bites my two year old dog like crazy! Every so often the puppy grabs hold of the older dogs lip or cheek an makes her cry! They both run after each other all day long and do this but mostly, its the pup that stirs up this commotion. In my own opinion (correct me if im wrong) Its one or the other. Either the dogs are allowed to do this or not. Is it wrong to stop the pup from this behavior? My concern is that this is not only for fun and games. We have a suspicion that this chocolate lab mix (sire unknown) may be half border collie. In which case maybe he is herding. If that be the case then I would have to stop that play all together???

if you would like to take a peak at the pup for yourself its under the topic " What am I?! A chocolate lab mixed with ??? " To little one is obviously the trouble maker lol

Your puppy is just that...a puppy. Its kind of like having a little brother or sister that bugs you all the time. In time your house will calm down and your pup will learn his boundaries, with the help of not only you but your other dog as well. I recently just also got a 2nd dog, a 6 month old Husky, and he is constantly trying to play w/ Xander, my 1 1/2 yr old APBT, and chew on his legs. Pay attention to your older dog and when you realize that he is wanting a break, give the puppy a verbal correction and redirect his attention else wear. Your older dog might also correct the puppy when his goes to far with his playing. What you describe is perfectly normal IMO, part of the fun of having a puppy again :-)

thanks for the comfort lol. I just worry a little more because of the fact that hes half border collie. And ive heard the horror storys of BC nipping like crazy even when adults because of the natural "herding instinct". People dont "nip it in the butt" soon enough and have a real problem on there hands. Ill keep my eye on it like you said and seperate them when it becomes to much for roxy. . . .which usually doesnt take very long! My puggle roxy is just a wimp. She hardly hardly ever sticks up for herself

Puppies are like children who are so playful, they don't know when to stop until they end up getting hurt, sooner or later your puppy will learn to refrain from this kind of behavior as he or she grow older, your older dog will tolerate this as long as its ok with him/her. the correction of stopping her will come from your older dog, though you can supervise the correction. This is just a normal puppy play thing, and if it gets out of control the older dog will surely not allow it especially if the older dog is the dominant one.
