my 10 week old puppy just broke skin on a child

My 10 week old puppy was playing with 2 kids and she nips a lot and she bit one of the girls lips and it was bleeding pretty badly.
I really need help with this! I don't want this happening anymore especially when she is bigger. she doesn't nip my skin hard anymore but with kids she really goes for it. I know shes teething but this is unacceptable!! What can I do?

It's hard to give advice from halfway across the world but watch what the kids are doing. At 10 weeks old it doesn't take a lot to get a puppy really excited. That might be why she bites with kids and not you.

What actually happened?

The kids were letting her chase them and then one of them tripped over the puppy and Junebug nipped the girl in the face while she was down

That's what I mean. Puppies are really exciteable and they nip each other when they play. Playing is really good and it's also good to bond with the kids but just make sure the kids don't rev her up too much. Are the kids old enough to understand that?

Also, lips bleed a lot anyway. I know it looks bad when someone has a cut lip.

My puppies ripped chunks out of my husbands arm with those sharp little teeth you have to be careful. Teaching them not to bite is a big part of training puppies but if you are already having this problem you need to separate the pup from the kids till you can correct this. Your pup should never be alone with the kids and this goes for any breed of dog, you have to supervise the play and correct the behavior when it happens. Children have no authority level with dogs and you have to make the corrections and not leave it to the kids.
What I would do if set the puppy up to bite the kids while you are there and have the pup on leash so you can make a correction. NEVER spank or hit them dog you will just make more problems. What I would do is if the pup puts teeth to skin scruff the pup and say a firm "NO" as soon as the pup stops or submits praise the pup. Most puppies will stop right away but some may fight you a bit and if they do that just correct them still they settle down.

Really my suggestion is to go to a puppy class as biting is easier to fix when a trainer can help you. It sounds like you don't have good control of your pup and that is why this behavior is getting out of control. Don't feel bad most dogs owners need help at some point and your pup will be better off with some training. Go to a training center NOT some where like a pet store.

She's not "out". i can already sense the judgement in that post. She has been at my house. My Dad's girlfriend brought her 2 kids over and it happened when I went out to lock my car. She's been playing with them the past few days without much problem because usually her nips aren't too hard.

Those puppy teeth are like needles! My puppy is one of those dominant bossy ones that when you say "NO" she will try and nip you or she will bark at you. I took a test in my training book that i bought and it said she was the dominant type lol. It said "very few dogs get all straight answers so its okay if your answers vary" She got EVERY single answer for being a dominant one. I will be taking her to puppy classes as soon as shes old enough. I think a big part of the problem was that she was taken from her mother when she was 4 weeks old and by the time I found her she was all by herself with her litter nowhere to be found. I had to work out her HA because she used to bare her teeth at me and attack (not playing) whenever i tried to show any slight dominance over her like saying no or holding her down on her back. she doesn't do that anymore and I taught her that when I hold her down, she needs to stop what shes doing and give kisses if she wants to be let go lol
. thank you for your advice!

That is fine to alpha roll her but do not try and get her to give kisses, that does nothing from a training stand point and you could get your face bit. One of my new pups I just bred is very much like that. It took a few weeks of training to work her out of it so keep doing what your doing and she should come out of it. I know pups taken away at an early age can have bite inhibition however do not let her use that as an excuse I have had plenty of pups taken away at an early age and you just have a work a little harder in the beginning.

My pup is very dominate and I have been using her as a demo puppy in my new puppy class I am teaching, she is the demo on how to fix biting! lol

If you run into big problems PM me

thanks for the advice about not doing the kisses thing. its been working with us but I definitely see your point. Is there any tips that you have for chewing my stuff? I got her like a cart full of chew toys and when she plays with them i say "good girl" and pet her and when shes chewing my stuff i grab her neck scruff and say no but she goes right back to my item until I pick her up and place her somewhere else.

put her on leash and toss something she cannot have if she goes to it pop the leash and say no, when she backs off praise her. Keep doing this and it should only take a few times if you are doing a good pop on the leash and she should lose interest. You need to set her up ad teach he what she can and cannot have. After you correct her for something she cannot have give her a toy of her own. I also suggest that new puppy owners keep the puppies on leash around the house on a flat collar so correct any behavior you do not want. It does not good run and chase them and yell, if they are n leash you can just snag the leash and make a proper correction.

It's hard for a dog to know chew toys from your toys. People give dogs a shoe to chew on and then flip out when their own shoes are chewed up. Gage is in the destructive mode and a trainer told me that about the shoes (I'd given him a shoe) what this guy said made sense but then again I'm lazy about where I pull my shoes off and didn't keep up with it. Besides "I" think he's more intelligent than this guy was giving him credit for. NOW, at six months Gage has a pair of furry old bedroom shoes that are HIS. When he picks up my shoe I say "what do you have" in a scolding voice and he'll put it down and leave it alone. He has even picked them up in the living room and brought them straight to me and placed them at my feet. He knows my shoes from his shoes...I knew he was intelligent!!! I always tend to expect more from him and so far he gives it.
