My 6mo old German Shepherd nips at my elbows - 06/04/2005
When I take my 6mo old shepherd for a walk she always nips at my elbows and when I let her run in the yard she runs an jumps to nip at my elbows. She ripped my shirt today doing that. Why this oddly behavior? I just got her 3 days ago.

TIA
Amanda

I think this is normal. Your GSD is just trying to control your movement like it would do with a sheep that is out of line. My White GSD is from a strong working backround and he showed the exact same kind of nipping. It is a control thing. This is just how the dog would control it's flock when they weren't following orders. I would tell him no and eventually he should grow out of it. On the other hand, this could be just from excitement. My GSD still nips when he gets all reved up for a run or bike ride.

this is NOT normal and is a sign that she is trying to control your movement and in effect, you. Smack her hard on the nose when she does this and let her know YOU are the boss, not her. If you don't, the behavior will only get more aggressive.
