Muzzle Punches when playing
  • Sometimes when I'm playing with Kachiko, she does the play bow and if I take to long to play back, she gets impatient and since sometimes it's during our training time and I am sitting, I will get a quick muzzle punch or poke. I know she is playing and it's not malicious, but damn, it hurts. Our trainer told us when she does something negative, to yelp, and stop playing. I've done all of this and it doesn't help. Now she is at the point when I yelp, she gets so excited that she air snaps. Any tips or advice? And has anyone else come across instances such as this?
