Thanks for that, I have worked out a reply for you below.
1. I can see your problem, minor nipping may not be too much of a concern right now, but when the baby comes that could be a different matter.
2. The first way to handle this is behavioural, at the first sign of trouble everyone should stand stock still and firmly tell the dog no, smacking her at this point is not going to help and could make things worse. Then ignore her for five minutes and put her out of the room if possible and leave her on her own. She has to learn that her behaviour is not going to turn into any form of attention seeking.
But when she is good, make a fuss of her now and again, get her to sit beside you, praise her and give her a couple of treats. This really is the carrot and stick approach, and it will need patience, but this is almost always the way forward.
3. Another thing that might help in conjunction with the about is Prozac type drugs from your vet, these will impart a feeling of well being and will enhance the behavioural training. I am not suggesting that this is a long term option but if her behaviour improves you can gradually wean her off them.
Please be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
