Question: What to do when your pup is nipping at young children's faces??

ANSWER:  Dogs "nip" at children's faces much in the way they would discipline pups..a quick maneuver that would not harm a pup but that does break skin on a child.  Since you are in Britain, contact the Association of Pet Behaviour Counselors in London and get a credentialed behaviorist to assess the problem.  Your children might not be quite "listening" to you, and they are both very young.  Chances are that your dog will begin to escalate if the children don't back off him.  If you are unable to afford this, return the dog to the rspca and do not get another dog until your youngest child is at least seven.
