I am in college and have a puppy, Bruno, who is actually a beabull. I have attached a picture from a couple of months ago he is much bigger now! Anyways, he is so well socialized because friends are always around and roommates which is great for him. He loves and wants to be friends with anyone he sees! Anyways, the issue I'm having is at 6 months he still is nipping while playing. It has gotten better (not breaking skin and inhibiting his bite a decent amount) but it is INCREDIBLY difficult to be consistent with different people alway in and out (friends, roommates, roommates friends etc). I am worried that although he doesn't nip at me so much he will be conditioned to still try it on other people to see if they will punish him by leaving the room. He likes to test everyone and it is difficult to ask guests to always get up and leave the room if he nips. Has anyone else had this situation where they can't get over the hump due to consistency and what have you done about it? Also, I will be out of college in 2 months and it will just be me and him. Will it still be possible to change his behavior towards other people seeing as I will be living on my own and other people will not be around as much? I know dogs have trouble generalizing so I'm a bit worried. Anyways, sorry this was so long winded thanks in advance for your help.
