I think this was definitely the case yesterday. I had just taken her on a socialization trip but she wouldn't calm down and I knew she needed sleep and then she started puppy attacking me.

I think I understand what I need to do.

I'll keep working on leave it with her. And she knows sit. So when she is biting me I'm going to tell her sit and hopefully she'll listen.

Although this doesn't help much teaching her bite inhibition...

I'll still work on that too.

SO MUCH TRAINING AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

lol I was so where your are only a few months ago with my lab/bc/aussie mix; and yes they are scary smart

I echo all of the solutions provided for you and will only add one thing. Tabasco sauce. If ever there is a bit of wall you don't mind repainting (and really if your pup is chewing on it, it will need repainting anyway) that squirt some Tabasco sauce on it. Now it's spicy and can cause tummy upset, but it was so worth it to get Tessa to stop gnawing on the walls. I only ever used a tiny bit and got immediate results, it's the only things Tessa hates (she laughed in the face of bitter apple spray, even the good one). Tessa only licked a small drop and then when she'd smell it she would just walk away.

Granted it's a quick solution and 'leave it' is more permanent solution to the problem, but when you just got back from work and a walk and the puppy immediately goes to gnawing on the wall you need something quick before you have a mental break down.

I'm really happy to hear that you went through the same thing.

My roommates aren't quite understanding the whole no 'positive punishment' thing.

This is my first dog and both of them keep saying that I need to tell her no! One says to flick her on the nose when she gets bity.

so I don't know how to tell them 'look this is the way I want to train her please follow the rules'

Why don't you show them this forum? or some positive trainers on YouTube, like kikopup?

Those two pieces of advice will either give you a very timid dog or a very aggressive one. What you want is a well trained dog. Tell them the best way to help is to get up and leave if the dog is bothering them. Taking people away is the worst punishment without a word spoken or a nose flicked. Show them this and they will understand what positive training will do for a pup.

So my friend came over and watch River play with me.
