    Default Dog biting tongue

    My little 14 month old bitch seems to bite her tongue whenever we work drills that have repeat runs ie..back pile or casting drills or consistent running. It's not so bad that I feel she's going to bleed to death or suffer permanent damage but it does bleed pretty good.

    It's usually towards the end of the secession so I just let her get a drink and I'll wipe her face off(yes it bleeds enough that blood gets on one side of her face).


    Anybody else had or have this issue?

    Mine used to bite his tongue if he got nicked while running, as in blowing off a sit whistle. He hasn't done either in a while...

    My dog ALWAYS bites her tongue. I can't tell you how many times she comes back with bloody bumpers. More often on some form of pile/blind work but she has on marks too. She is hard on herself, she doesn't slow for the pick up, just opens wide, grabs the bumper, flips (to stop and turn around) and runs back.

    You would think she would learn. She seems like such a bright dog too.

    This is the exact situation.
