General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Nibbling
« on: October 05, 2009, 11:17:58 am »
So...I haven't been on in awhile but I have a quick question.  Both of our greater swiss mountain dogs have started to nibble on my husband's chin.  They aren't playing and they're not excited... when they are licking him, they just start nibbling a little.  He is the only person they do this too and we were just wondering why they do this.  We had a Mastiff in the past that did it also, and we're just curious why big dogs to this.

Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Discussions / Help! Sioux is going crazy!

So...I have a big problem and I'm not sure exactly how to go about it.  Figured this would probably be a good place to start.  Earlier today we had some friends over to help put up our fence.  Sioux, our female, has meant everyone who came over several times.  She did her usual bark at everyone that came through the door and then hide.  But then I was in the kitchen with her and Smoke and my friend's 8 year old son.  I had my back turned and all of a sudden I heard Sioux growl and as I turned I saw her go after him.  This is something that she has NEVER done before.  So I punished her and kenneled her in the house by herself.  So after maybe 1 1/2 hrs I let her out so that she could go to the bathroom.  We get outside and all of a sudden every hair on her back was raised and she was growling again at someone new.  So again I punished her and re-kenneled her inside alone.  I know the breed can be very protective and she's not fond of any changes.  A chair in the wrong place will set her barking.   But I'm not sure what to do with her.  We've been through puppy classes with both of them.  Sioux didn't do so well there, just because she was more intent on what everyone else was doing, but she was never agressive towards any other dogs or people.  But I will admit, she scared me today.  Any advice that anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.  I want to stop this now, before it becomes a big problem!  Thanks for reading and sorry it's so long!

Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Discussions / Another New Swissy Mom

Hi everyone!!  I just thought that I would say hi to everyone since I'm new to this site.  I've been looking for a forum for just swissys for awhile and am so glad that I finally found one.  My husband and I have to Swissy puppies right now.  Sioux is a 6 mo old female and Smoke is a 5 mo old male.  Smoke is also the bluish color that seems to be really rare.  But they are both beautiful dogs.  They are going to puppy classes right now and are trying as hard as they can to learn.  When I get a chance I'll post pictures so that everyone can see our beautiful puppies!!!
