Often we get asked How To Stop Puppy Biting? Learning to control the strength of a bite is important for all dogs. A puppy learns not to bite too hard on its mother when she yelps loudly. From there, the puppy learns that biting causes pain. Mimicking a painful cry or going “Ouch!” is a technique we can use to teach the puppy that it hurt. Provide positive reinforcement by providing a treat as the puppy backs off.
A puppy that keeps biting may just be energetic. Having a chew toy would help in channeling their destructive urges that can arise from boredom or even anxiety.
