Rescue Labrador Biting
I have just adopted an 18 month Labrador from a rescue centre, she has been in there for 5 months so has had almost zero training for her whole life.
She is gorgeous and generally quite well behaved but she is trying to get dominance and is biting me and my husband when she gets excited (for example when we return after being out or when we try to play with her). We have only had her for 4 days so I do not want to give up on her, but the rescue centre will only take her back within the first 2 weeks and I worry that we might keep her and this behaviour will get worse.
She understands “no” and “sit” under other circumstances but when excited she just ignores us and bites arms, legs, feet, any part that moves!
Should we try the ignoring thing? When she bites should we just walk away?
Thanks in advance for any advice. Rosey is a lovely dog and I want to offer her a good second home.
