Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

What are you doing to excite him to where he play bites you? When is it happening?

What are you walking him on, as in what collar or harness? What is your protocol or technique when walking him? It would help if you describe it in detail from the time you put the leash on him at home to how you allow him to behave while walking.

for the play biting when i usually rub his fur and top of head, under the chin and belly which is when he usually start the play bite.

as for the leash i use is use a metal chain leash about 5ft long and is usually hook it on his collar and as for walking technique i walk him next to me or i at least try to before he ran ahead try that a couple of time but when i try to slow him down he tend to choke on his collar. as for behavior while walking he is runs around smelling flower and occasionally piss on tree.

Well, if you know what causes him to play bite and you don't want him to play bite, then don't do what causes it. He hasn't learned by now that it is inappropriate, so you can just eliminate the causes of it.

You can try, if you're willing, to actually invite him to play bite you when you can. Get down on the floor with him and allow him to do it. Then, once you do this, when he goes to do it on his own will, you can correct him and prevent it. At this point he sort of needs to do it because it is fulfilling for him, so you can try to create an appropriate context for him to do it, so that you can then correct him for doing it in inappropriate contexts.

First things first on walks: stop allowing him to smell and pee and wander when he wants. The breed, in general , is very impulsive, and your dog in particular sounds VERY impulsive. His only job on a walk with you is to walk with you , that's it. Don't allow him to wander away from you and do what he pleases.

There is much more you can do, but, I am concerned about safety issues for you and your dog.

If there is ever any way you can scrap together enough money to hire a trainer, you should go to thegooddog.net and hire them. They are LA based and they can absolutely help you. You can hire them for just a Walking Properly service and will absolutely change your life with your dog.
