Hi, I really need some advice (and no lectures please; I'm already very upset.) We have a four month old female schnoodle, who has frankly been delightful up til yesterday. She has her typical puppy moments, but is mostly quite a good pup. She knows all her basic commands, is housebroken, loves everyone. We have two little boys, age 3 and 5, and she's been very good with them up til now.
While I was in the bathroom yesterday, I heard a scream and came out to find blood streaming down the 3 year old's face. Apparently he'd been teasing Moya -- holding a toy she wanted above his head out of her reach -- and she was jumping up for it. (This was the 5 year old's version of events, which I believe to be true.) I assumed she bit him by accident; that she jumped up for the toy near his face. I had a serious talk to James about not teasing the dog. Yes, I know he should be supervised with the dog. But my husband travels and every so often this tired mom forgets.
This evening, we were all in the family room and James tossed a ball for Moya. She retrieved it, dropped it in front of him, and then jumped up and bit him in the face. It was very shocking. This bite too drew blood.
I don't know what to do. She's in a training class at Petsmart (not terribly useful; it's mostly about basic commands and I'd already taught them to her.) I'll ask the trainer there today, but this is serious stuff. Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me? I can deal with many issues, but the dog wounding my children is unacceptable.
