    My 2 yr old Shiba has become obsessed with nipping/biting a 1 yr old pug @ the park.

    My shiba, Miwa, is very socialized at the park:  she mostly likes to chase and be chased. She prefers feisty fun and she's very vocal.  Suddenly, 2 weeks ago, a little pug appears, Miwa stops her play to go after this dog.  The owner picked her pug up, but Miwa nipped her in the back, causing bleeding.  Miwa has never done this to any other dog at the park.  Only this ONE dog. She's very energetic, so maybe she was inviting play?  But in her enthusiasm, she "overnipped"?  Well, the pug's owner doesn't understand and wants me to muzzle or ecollar my dog.  I won't.  Any adivice?
