I don't know if this is the answer, but with CJ he has air snapped and nipped Steve in the arm once. I bought a a house plant water spray holder and when he has nipped or air snapped I have sprayed him with a jet of water from it and told him no. It is an American idea and also someone else with a greyhound told us that is what he did. Seems to work. Not an expert though.
Dex had a nip at Den when they were having a run, cost over £100 and a day at the vets to fix
We put Dex in a muzzle, which he hated, and after a few times of wearing it, he stopped nipping, if he got rough again, we'd just put the muzzle on again. I don't know if he knew if he didn't bite he didn't have to wear it, or he got out of the habit of doing it, but it seemed to work. He's not worn it for few months now
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true. To the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Oh Alicia, I am so sorry to hear about Tullys behaviour , poor Sorda,and, Cushna . I think Emma's advice on the muzzle could be a goer ,but, could be worth giving Lisa a ring too,and, see what she advices in this situation ,as, obviously it needs to be stopped.........so, hope it can be soon sorted out for you
Will ring you tomorrow but for now everytime he gets OTT in the house take him out into another room and time him out for a couple of minutes! Bring him back in after a couple of minutes and say nothing and if he tries it again same thing remove him!
