Why does my dog Molly keep on biting me when I pet her

Report as

my boss has a Maltese and takes him with us to jobs. sometimes when he sits on my lap he will do little bites on my wrists not enough to hurt my boss asked the vet about it and the vet said it's the breed the dog will "nibble" to show affection to someone the dog likes

I think your dog is trying to bite you when you pet her because she has an emotional problem. She might be having stress or sad. It would be advisable to consult a vet if the behavior continues.

How old is your pet? If it is a pup, then take two fingers and pop on the nose, & say "don't bite," or "no."
Two word commands work best.

Touching her might be physically painful for her, so take her to the vet.

Some animals get whats called petting induced aggresion. When you pet your dog it induces sensory overload so your dog does not want to bite you but it cannot help or control it. See your dog's vet for a treatment plan.
