(Follow-Ups set to "rec.pets.dogs.behavior")
Hi, my names Dennis. I'm an old hat at this Usenet stuff, I have just been away awhile (got bored with it back in pre-y2k).

I have an 11 month old Shitsu Cross, Jasmin, with a bit of a rambunctious streak. We are still in the process of training her, but it can be tiring at times (my SO lets her get away with too much, because she's "just a puppy").
We managed to get her Paper trained, but getting her to the next step (asking to go outside) is difficult. Jasmin also has a nipping problem; she likes to play a little too ruff at times.

Any suggestions and links are welcome.

Because I sometimes have a protection aggression issue with rpdh, this is probably more my problem than yours. Why did you post a behaviour issue to a health group and then set followups to the behaviour group?

Don't let her do that.

It's difficult because you set youself up for failure. Paper training involves allowing the dog to pee inside the house. Now you want her to pee outside. One of the basic tenets of dog training is to not let the dog make a mistake. Inadvertently, you've been training the dog to make a "mistake" - your best bet would be to start fresh.

Dejagoogle rpd.behavior for crate training.
Jasmin also has a nipping problem; she likes to play a little too ruff at times.

Redirect to a suitable biting thingy, praise if she likes it better than your hands. If that doesn't work after a few sessions, ask back.

Because I made a reply or two to the questions in health group before introducing myself to both groups.
You will notice there are no question marks on anything below so you could have taken it as just narrative, as a long winded current status in the world thing. I only set the forward as an after thought, since there was some implied questions better suited to the "behavior" group.

Difficult to do with SOs, they command so much more...

OK, I'll look it up tonight.

Got it. That one should be easier to do.

I don't understand the above.
I hope my other suggestions help.

I think paper training is ALWAYS a bad idea if you ever plan on expecting them to potty outside. It makes the process harder. I suggest crate training her, so she can be managed in between potty periods. After she goes outside successfully, she can then have supervised free time until she's due for another potty interval. Take her out if she doesn't go, crate her, and offer her frequent trips outside until she's successful. No bedding in the crate.
When she nips, don't play any more.I'd crate her for rough play. I also press athumb intheir soft palate, and let them" TRY" to spit me out. They soon enough learn that I am something they do NOT want in their mouths
