face lunging?

my 7 month old apbt is easily excitable, she plays with her sister alot which is usually open mouth combat but I think she is having trouble keeping her mouth closed when she tries to lick peoples faces, it starts out just a gentle lick then as she keeps doing it they turn into fierce licks and usually end up with her mouth open rubbing it on my face. and sometimes she'll want to give me a kiss but start it as a lunge at my face open mouthed. how can i stop this? yelling ow doesn't work on my dog she just gets more hyper and riled up.

I think her behavior is pretty normal for a 7 month old puppy that has yet to be taught impulse control. Whoever is playing with her needs to not allow her to get that worked up. You can take periodic breaks from play and help her calm down by stopping play and petting/massaging her gently, re-directing to a chew or a toy, withdrawing attention and interaction for a few seconds or getting some treats and engaging her mind by working on some simple training commands.

Playing the "chill out" game would be good!

It would probably also help to work on some general impulse control training techniques which are fun, good for the pup, are something you do together and will increase your bond and just plain old good foundation training behaviors.

Here are some ideas:

http://www.dogdaysnw.com/doc/Overall...onProtocol.pdf

Doggie Zen

The relaxation protocol is a 15 day "training program"; first you do it in-house; then you work it around distractions. If you want to see what it looks like, this is our 15th day in house w/o distractions (it doesn't look like much, but it is initially hard for the dog). (*also, I don't know if Overall says this; but I think based on the individual dog it can take longer than 15 days and you should just work it at your own pace; remembering it is supposed to be a calm exercise, so not letting yourself get stressed out if your pup initially has a hard time and can only do small bits at a time).

I agree with not allowing the face licking. It can be a bad habit for other when they come to see your dog, not everyone wants a kiss! Also some dogs are just more mouthy then others and simply not allowing her to jump at your face will help. Also i HATE halti's! What a useless tool for dog training!! They work by jerking he dog neck down or to the side and while the supporters argue they are humane and safe they actually cause neck injuries. Put your pup on leash and if she tries to jump at your face say no and give a pop on the leash. You can do with with the leash attached to the regular collar you have on your dog. Simple solution.
