5 Tips to Stop Your Puppy from Biting

  • Most puppies chew because they are teething. Give your dog chew toys that are acceptable for him like rubber kongs filled with peanut butter, ice cubes, elk antlers or nylabones.

  • Replace your hand with an appropriate chew toy, then praise the puppy for chewing the toy.

  • Put a leash on your puppy in the house so that when he starts to nip, you can give him a leash and collar correction. Over time he will learn that nipping is an unacceptable behaviour.

  • Use a command like “leave it” in a firm voice then praise your puppy when he stops biting.

  • Distract your puppy by playing fetch with him
