Time and patience!

When she does that, pick her up, look her right in the eye and tell her a firm No and do it each time she does it until she figures out that it is not acceptable behaviour. It doesn't take long for them to learn what No means (thank goodness). I have one formerly vicious biter and one sock lover but we're past the bad behaviour now finally except for finding holes in my socks in the laundry but that's another story Roll Eyes! Also a squirt of Bitter Apple on your socks or your bare feet won't hurt to drive the point home either!

Good luck Smiley
