Hi ya, welcome to the forum Smile

The first thing to advise is that everyone has to follow the same rules. With the nipping of the hand, foot, torso quickly replace with a toy. Toys are for chewing, people are not. If you all follow this rule you'll win fairly quickly. If you get the jumping up to nip, fold arms in and make zero contact, no eye contact simply zero. Staffies are very human orientated so if you give them no opportunity they will learn fast.

Thanks..I've noticed if I try to stop him it only encourages him as he gets so excited u find he can't control himself amd then comes the spinning and barking lol. I understand he's young and will hopefully learn what a great little guy to have around. He is our first stafford and I'm sure not our last hehe

Ian's right. And complete consistency is vital. If you hide you hands, make zero contact and even turn you back with every single nip, but then talk to him and praise him when he doesn't, he should learn that being quite is what gets him what he wants, i.e. your attention.

It can take a while so be patient, and you will get there!

I've found the same thing in only five days. Bellas 8 weeks and she's already learning these things. Slowly but surely. My first staffy and I've noticed how smart she is
