ANSWER: Sheppard puppy,ballarat,vic
She knows that the chain is not a nice thing and response to that?. She is young and confident and wants attention and results to making herself known to you by biting. She is a young dog and can be easily trained out of this. You need to ensure you are seen as the leader and she has to learn not to want to play the boss. Jumping the fence is another sign that she thinks she is the boss. I would recommend that you get a good dog trainer to help you with this as this will get worse and also may result in real biting rather than nipping.
