    Yeah, I know the feeling. When my mother looks after him I can hear her sometimes from another room trying to catch him!

    Another observation from this week my partner has been working with him trying to teach him new tricks only five ten minutes at a time reinforced with treats etc but he has now become her little sidekick lol so maybe try it with your little guy if not doing so already obviously mine isnt nipping so bit of a different scenario but he wasnt really listening to her before like i mentioned higher up but now hes on her evrry word i call her the trat lady lol

    I will for sure try that ! He’s been better though , I think he’s slowly learning. Another obversation was in his sleep he makes this weird noise like if he’s drinking water or i don’t know if he thinks he’s still getting milk from his mom lol it’s so adorable but it scared me at first ! Does yours do that?

    My nine and ten year old Beagles still occasionally do that when they are deeply asleep. They also gallop and jump, wag their tails, and have scary nightmares which can make them yelp and growl.

    and that's exactly what you should do. No reprimand, no eye contact, just stop and wait until he does walk off then reward him with praise, treat, a little game, whatever.

    Dogs do what works. Nipping your ankles and getting you to dance is a great game. If the game stops so does the fun so it's not worth doing
