|Tiller, wow, I remember you telling that story before, that is a good reminder that you need to pay attention to the individual dog.
I will say I do not allow dogs to 'mouth' me, even in play. There have been a few times where my dogs have accidentally grabbed my hand when playing tug or some other game, but I never play with them in that manner, where putting mouths on skin in encouraged (none of my dogs have ever been trained as PPD or anything like that though). Budro, my past Shepherd mix, was good about keeping his mouth off when I first adopted him...but then a co-worker at Petsmart started playing with him rough, and encouraged him to mouth her (even after I asked her to stop). After that, he got a lot more revved up when playing, and I did have to stop with the tug until I could get him to understand teeth on skin was unacceptable.
