Jumping and nipping?

We recently adopted a 4 month old doberman/hound mix (?). She is doing well with potty training, walking on a leash, and obedience training. The only thing that make me a bit nervous is that when she is excited she tends to jump up at you and nip. It seems playful, but I can't help but worry about how dangerous this behavior will be when she is 60 lbs. instead of 25 lbs. .

This is the first large breed puppy I have ever owned, so the puppy stuff just seems so .............. much bigger .

I respond to this behavior by making the obnoxious dolphin noise, and turning away from her and ignoring her. Often she responds to this by sitting , or walking away to sniff at stuff , but sometimes she just keeps jumping and nipping . So should I just stick with what I am doing? Is there something else I should try? Is this behavior normal or a red flag?

Thank you

These may help. You want to teach that it is more rewarding to keep the feet on the ground and the mouth off of you. Kikopup makes it easy and fun to train.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the video links. I am focusing on the biting first, and I can't believe how much it has helped already! I did three short sessions with her yesterday. I had fun and so did she, and she caught on sooooooo fast. I know it will take a long time to become rock solid, but I am really excited about teaching her! Thank you!

Your welcome. Isn't kikopup great. This may also be helpful. You have to stop the treats at some point. This is how you do it and still get the behavior you trained.
