When you are working with her, and she goes to bite, grab her mouth, but not the normal grab your snout closed. Actually grab her jaw. With your thumb going inside her mouth.
What you will want to do is get your thumb under her tongue, and try and connect your thumb through the mouth with the fingers that are underneath the mouth. So you are grabbing the side of her jaw.
It's very irritating to a dog, she'll struggle, but in my experience, it has worked quicker than any bitter apple or anything like that.
Anytime she tries to mouth and it's not appropriate, grab it, and don't let her go for a couple seconds.
She'll get tired of that real quick and just decide that it's better that she keep her mouth shut.
DISCLAIMER! If you don't have breed experience and are new to the APBT, do not use this method, there are others!
