I would suggst an animal behaviorist and / or trainer. They can usually nip a problem like that in the bud, no pun intended. Under what circcumstances does she bite?

I enrooled Mocha in Obedance class and I purchased a spray called Directstop... It is a deterrent spray and its has a awful taste so when Mocha bites or does something I dont want her to do I spray her.. I sometimes can just grab the can and she'll stop!! Good luck and try to enroll her in kindergarten or obediance classes

You need to know if it's nervous aggresion, or dominance aggresion or if it's play biting got out of hand. Sometimes it's easier to get a behaviourist to help determine what it is and how to stop it. If anyone is in danger a muzzle will help short term.

I wasn't sure if you'd just had your yorkie or had her from a pup? A lot can be done with nervous aggression for sure. You do need professional help - what is she like with other dogs? Is she biting you or just afraid and biting others? Ana xx
