Subject:Re: Biting
Message:What worked for me and my nanday was that when he bit me, I bit him back on his toe (lightly). After about two or three times of this, he saw that if he bites, he gets bit. He didn't like getting bit, so he stopped biting. It's just a conditioned response. He got back what he gave... so when he gave kisses, he got back kisses. It works in reverse too. Simple, but very effective.
