Re: giz starting to bite

Have you checked to make sure that he does not have a sore spot on his head, if this is a new thing, it may be that he is afraid of being hurt by someone. Another thing is that a lot of small dogs are scared of something coming from above, so have the people first put their hands under his chin and scratch him and then go up to his head from the frot of him, rather than from behind. I don't know if either of these will help, but if he never did this before it sounds like something happened to scare him.
