Raegans arm. She has a matching one on the other side. And two matching legs.
I'm at a loss as to what to do. He's not *biting* her, but rather "catching" her with his mouth, in play. She is just so little and twitchy and flighty, her every movement invites "play" from him. I've tried smacking him, pinching his mouth shut, keeping him leashed ( although the second he gets off the leash he goes after her) and even keeping him outside more.. nothing is helping. And he's tall enough now that her shoulders and face are starting to get within reach. Muzzle? Is a muzzle appropriate for this? If so, what's the appropriate way to use it?I'm just hitting a brick wall. I do NOT want to give up on this dog, but her arms and legs.......... it's just killing me seeing her all beat up like this. I didn't have any issues like this with Cloe or Lola, so I have no idea how to treat it.
What do I do?
