Champ is too careful, bordering on cautious about making mistakes. I am trying to show him he can be a little naughty. I put him in a pen with a bunch of goats and 6 Hampshire lambs. The goats "like" Champ. The big Billy tried to help him separate the lambs from the others. Funniest thing I ever saw. The Billy head butted the lambs. He didn't bother Champ at all. Finally, Champ got 3 Hamps out of the pen. They are only 3 1/2 mos. but look bigger than that. Perfect for teaching Champ that he may have to get a bit pushy with them. Even though Champ isn't as pushy as I would like, he has a great nose bite when he has had enough. He doesn't get excited; he just walks forward and takes a CHOMP.
I don't encourage him. I try to let him figure it out on his own. I saw that he had a natural nose bite as a young pup. Now, I'm trying to let him develop it on his own as he matures. :0)
