How do I train my dog to stop biting people?
Question by sammyd: How do I train my dog to stop biting people?
I adopted a foster dog from the shelter. He is a rescue dog from a house of 25 other dogs and my home was his first experience being a “pet”.
He is a very loving dog, and a perfect pet to my family. However, when people come to the house he freaks out. We will calm him down, but he will follow the guests around and snap at them when he can. I can’t figure out what his problem is or what to do about it. The other day he snipped at a two year old girl, who was not threatening him at all.
He is two years old and a mid sized dog, a little bigger than a cocker spaniel.

Snap him on the nose with a rolled up newspaper when he does it. Negative response teaches them.
