Don't laugh or give her a treat. She thinks this is a reward, or game for her actions. Ignore what she is doing and continue to walk as if nothing is happening. If she continues, FIRMLY, not playfully, tell her "NO!" or say "OUCH!" loudly to catch her attention. This way she'll understand that what she is doing is wrong. Don't kick your foot back and forth, which is usually the reaction people make. She'll think it's a game. Make sure that she has plenty of toys. This could possibly be an act of teething. Like her way of saying, "Hey, mom! My mouth hurts. I need something to chew on. At the moment your feet are looking pretty good to chew on." If these things don't work, see a vet and ask what else can be done.

erica013 answered Thursday February 17 2005, 4:28 pm:
uhmm you need to disapline her and yell "STOP" AND if you r not laughing at her or ne thing then she should stop. and if seems not to then i would say that you should grab her mouth and tell her that it is naughty to do that. and thats all i have mayb go take her to a specialist.

My dog did that too. Get a spray bottle full of water and when she does it spray her in the face. It worked on my dog.

I've heard some other problems like this from people that I know. Some of them say that if you have a spray bottle of water and squirt the dog with it everytime she does something like that she will eventually learn its wrong and she should stop! Hope I helped!

I just hate it when people answer these sort of questions and they don't know what they're talking about.

It's not normal, nor should you simply tolerate a boxer, or any dog for that matter, biting at your feet and pants.

My roommates dog does that and it's incredubly annoying, yet with a boxer it can be dangerous.

Your dog is probably just playing, but you need to show her that it's wrong to do it.

I don't feel like going through my normal long page worth of "how to train your dog" so, if you really want to find out about this, then read through my column a bit, or ask another question for me to answer later, or call a professional dog behavioralist.

I also hate it when people advize others to put a shock collar on a dog. It's abusive and wrong, and does not teach the dog a damn thing. I could explain, but again, I don't feel like it right now.

Karen answered Wednesday February 16 2005, 9:33 pm:
It's normal for a dog, well a puppy in your case, to bite your feet and pull on your pants because all puppies do that, especially when they are teething. You just need to ignore your dog and give her a chew toy. Hope I helped :)

You call her sweet and she bites you? Well I think when she does that maybe just push her away to let her know its wrong. Try not to hurt her though. Besta Luck!

It's what puppies do they bite and want to play all day. I know I have a beagle she's almost 3 and still bites when I play with her. But boxer's are stronger and might hurt you on accident. Tell her no and give her a chew toy*

It is just a puppy thing, dont worry about it just ignore it for now. It doesn't mean anything really. Just that it wants to play.

Well i`m currently attending dog training classes for my puppy ( austrailian kelpie, really cute ) and the trainer told me that what they want is attension so when she is biting at your feet ignore her and if that doesnt work scold her until she`s sitting then give her lots of praise and if that doesnt work then put her in a crate and let her out in like 5 min if shes not barking and if she is barking and whining leave her in there until shes done. Good Luck!! Puppies are hard work!!

shake answered Wednesday February 16 2005, 7:57 pm:
Slape it in the face when it duz it. I dont really call your dog a "SWEET FULLBLOODED BOXER" if its biting anything moving. Also try a shocker collar those are hilariouse to watch the dogs jump at unexpectedly when they get shocked. The shock collar will probably have the most affect for both you( the hilarity of watching it happen) and the dog ( because it will learn to stop)

BeautifulMadness answered Wednesday February 16 2005, 7:40 pm:
Don't worry about it, my dog did exactly the same thing!! Tell her off every time she does it, and hope she grows out of it. My dog usually does it when she's excited or sleepy and you disturb her.
If it doesn't at least decrease in the next couple of months, then you can try the coke-can trick. Fill a coke can with little stones and sellotape over the hole. Then, every time she goes for your feet, throw the can at her, so that it doesn't hit her but only just misses. It's supposed to scare the dog into stopping doing whatever the bad thing is.
If that doesn't work, try an animal behavourist but they could be kinda expensive.
Blessed Be,
Rach xxx
