As most of you know, we got a 1 yr old boxer/golden ret. mix 2 weeks ago, and Max is a wonderful dog, and we have broken ALMOST all of his bad habits, but have a couple lurking that I just can't seem to get to stop. He was allowed to lick at his old home, and I can't stand to be licked by dogs, nor have we ever allowed any of our other dogs to lick. We nipped it in the bud when they were puppies, and that was that. He is only a year old, but that's a whole year that he licked everyone in sight. How do I break him of it? His other problem is biting at our fingers while we're walking or playing with him. He doesn't do it aggressively, but he gets a little more aggresive with our 11 yr old. We have broken the jumping up, begging when we eat, and tug-o-war things, but this is the 1st time we've gotten a new dog that wasn't a puppy, and I don't want to break his spirit, but want him to know that the biting and licking have got to stop. HELP!!!!
