Default Re: Adopting a puppy with a toddler and almost 8 year old

I had to teach my kids that when Rey tries to nip at them they need to stop, stand still, and hide their hands (usually by curling their arms up in front of their chest or under their arms) until she got bored and left them alone. Before that, the kids would run from her, which was super fun for her and only made it worse.

We also do a lot of giving her a toy or bone that she can chew on when she's trying to mouth our hands.
