di59louie Posted November 30, 2008 Report Share Posted November 30, 2008 It's been awhile since I have been on this board but I have a situation which is getting out of hand...the intent of my pursuing a B.C. was to run with one and I do on most days for min. 1 hour and maybe max 1.5 hours - I do not take him on my long runs 1-2x/wk; In the beginning of our runs he gets sooo excited that he bites me. I try to divert the energy by asking him to get a stick or give him a stick myself - he eventually stops the nipping and jumping up as the run goes longer...he never jumps or nips anyone while running on the trails - this morning I ran with a friend and Louie my B.C. bit me very hard that he broke the skin. Should I ask him to just sit and wait for 1-2 minutes before we start? I am not one to beat him into submission although I have pushed him away pretty hard from me because he hurts me. This is the only time he acts this wa. He is great with my kids and husband - it is just me - am I projecting weird energy , e.g. anticipating that this will happen? I read that aromatherapy might work - have some form of oils in the car while driving to the place we go to??? ANY SUGGESTIONS would be surely be great! I would be very very grateful! Thanks in advance!!! Diana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
