I have a 4 month old Scottie who constantly bites me. I have tried everything the vet and trainer have recommended. Every time I leave for work he is biting my shoes, but mostly he bites the back of my ankles and my hands sometimes drawing blood. I have wanted a Scottie since I was a child, I love my dog so much but i just do not know what to do anymore. Anything at all I would so much try and appreciate.

Yes, we can help. Bridget was a terrible biter as a puppy and is pretty much cured except for the occasional foot-biting incident.

What I’m about to recommend will be controversial but it works and no one gets hurt.
We have also used the spray bottle training method successfully on cats so that’s the Scottie News‘ official endorsement, “Works for hard-to-train cats and terriers and you can buy it at the dollar store.”

Here’s a discussion of the spray bottle dog training technique.
