Please can you tell me how to discourage our boerboel puppy from biting us - she has lots of ropey toys and bones, but 'eats' our feet and legs continuously.

In my experience, any and all behavior problems can be eliminated with heavy excercise which the boerboel breed requires. I walk mine 3-4 miles a day, briskly (since about 3 mos./age) He could go all day, but 3-4 miles is enough to make him "gentle". This breed must know who's the boss early on without question, not likely to be accomplished without heavy excercise.

You have to respond with a firm "No" when your boerboel dog is nibbling, followed by some sort of discipline. Punishment could include sending him to a spot alone. Boerboels love to be around their owners. The breed requires a dominant owner. Also, a raw diet will curtail biting in general.

DO NOT walk your dog 3-4 miles at that early of an age, as that can cause joint problems in ANY large breed, especially one as big as this one. Start on this long activity only after 12 months old.
