Puppy Mouthing

Hi there,

I have a 6 month old German Shepherd mix puppy. She is a very well behaved, well socialised puppy. She doesn't mind being picked up and will lick you but then she will mouth your face. This is not something I want to encourage as she is often around children and is actually going to be a therapy dog.

1. Why does she do this?

2. What can I do to stop it?

Thankyou in advance for any answers.

Hi! I have a one year old rescue dog, and she does this sometimes too. She gets so excited sometimes! Anyway, I would recommend if she does this, get up and ignore her for a little bit. Actions speak louder than words in this situation. This teaches her that if she mouths, fun time is over. And don't forget to praise her when she does the right thing! Clicker training is a great thing to try if you haven't already. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtu...ining-your-pet. Good luck!
