Sounds cool, but what worries me is that she might have a time to interact with a child and bite the child. If she is not around small children that sounds like a whole lota of fun

It really isn't a good idea to allow her to bite you in the face even if it is in play. As Malteze said, it could be a big problem if she bit a small child or even another adult.

Momma dogs teach their puppies bit inhibition early on (before 12 weeks) because this is unacceptable behavior. Depending on what age you got Mitzi, she may or may not have learned this important lesson. If not, it up to you to teach her.

Just a word to the wise about puppies. That "cute" behavior in a puppy can be quite obnoxious in an adult dog. It's always a good idea to project ahead to when Mitzi is grown up when evaluating whether or not ceratin behavior is acceptable or should be corrected early on.
