Hi Jenny:)

I had this same problem with my Jacques!  She would be such a little turd when I went to take her off my shoulder.  She LOVES to ride around there and on the back of my shirt while I'm doing things around the house.  What worked for me is I stopped reacting to her bite and kept making her step up.  You have to remember Nanday's are MAJOR drama queens!  If it makes a commotion they want to be smack dab in the middle of it.  When I stopped reacting, she slowly realized it wasn't fun any more to bite Mommy.  She still pitches a fit, but its just to let me know she wants to stay where she is:)  My significant other STILL gets all animated and emotional when she bites him and guess what?  She NAILS him every time:)
