First, follow these 4 steps for how to stop puppies from biting. Then, if your puppy continues to bite, or if you have other behavioral issues with your puppy, get extra help from Doggy Dan (see below).
1. Provide your puppy something else to chew on. Puppy chew toys are a good choice (especially since they’re teething!)
2. When your puppy starts biting you, redirect him to his chew toy. This takes repetition – do this consistently.
3. If your puppy won’t stop biting, place him on the floor and don’t say anything. If he continuously gets this consequence, it will discourage him from biting.
4. If he continues biting once he’s near you again, put him in time-out for a few minutes (dogs hate to be alone or ignored).
I learned these tips from professional dog trainer, Doggy Dan’s video website, The Online Dog Trainer. If you check out the site, you’ll see it includes far more training about puppy biting.
Even more exciting is that Doggy Dan has a video series called, “Project Moses.” Doggy Dan adopts a beagle puppy named Moses at 8 weeks, then does weekly training videos with Moses all the way up to 1 year old. You get to see the entire training process! Click below to visit Doggy Dan’s Perfect Puppy Program:
