Toes, anyone?


Recommended Posts

Ella continues to be a delight! However, she really loves toes. Gentle nibbles, sometimes getting a little too persistant. I am trying the "no" treatment, but she forgets herself. Sometimes I try the "silly chair" for a time out. She loves to bite toes first thing in the morning..like Hello..Here I am! Also, when we come home.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Its cute but it does need to stop. I don't want my guests to experience this!

The look on her face is... highly intelligent, yes.  Cooperative?  Perhaps not.

Whatever training technique you settle on, this could take a while...!

How can you be mad at that face!!

I don't have a answer, but we are going through something a little similar in that Atticus LOVES socks. Guests have to keep their doors closed (this is especially hard with a 5 yr old gd) or he will appear with your sock in his mouth. He will even try to get them off your feet while you are putting them on.

Atticus! I love the name. What a little rascal, stealing sox! I know, Ella does it too. Bit holes in at least 10 pairs or more. The toe biting has improved but only slightly and she is no long biting the vacuum.  She turned one year this month.
