My 5 year old Great Dane (female) bit me this morning. Hard enough to draw blood, but no need for stitches.
I was clipping her nails, something that we have done probably 50 times or more in her life.
This morning she would not lay down for me, would not let me at her feet. When I finally got her in submission position (her on her side, me over her holding her legs) and calmed down, I started.
Her history has never been physical. Ever since we found out about her degenerative heart disease, she has slowly been getting less and less cuddly, but never ever has she bit.
uggg, this royally sucks. I have 2 little kids and if she will bit me for a very normal reason....what if they get jazzy with her tail or yank on her ear or something.....
I know my options. Put her down, find a rescue, keep her seperated.....none are really good - all seperate her from our family.
