Discover How Easy It Is To Stop Puppy Biting Problems

May 14, 2008
To stop puppy biting, there is one word you must use: No. This is the correct command to use for any kind of behavior correction in regard to your puppy. When your puppy tries to chew on your sneakers, say no. If your puppy has learned this word, a firm no will prevent them from biting, as well as jumping all over people when he or she ought not to.

It is very essential that your puppy understands that 'No' is a very strong word of correction which he must necessarily follow. So when you see you puppy chewing on something that he should not, then just say, 'No!' in a very firm voice. If this does not discourage him from biting, then give him a firm tap under his chin.

If this also fails to stop the undesirable behavior, stringer measures must be brought into play. Take some time to watch animals interacting with each other. They do not of course speak as such and thus do not tell each other what to do or not do. Animals instead use growling, bumping and posturing as deterrents. The encourage behavior via their facial expressions and vocalizing. When these fail for animals, they will resort to fighting.

It is the pack behavior that goads them into observational learning. They synchronize their behavior to suit the requirements of the rest of the pack. In a pack if one creature does not toe the line, then the pack leader reprimands him about it!

Stay calm, cool & composed Keep your cool when you must correct your puppy's behavior. You don't want to scare your puppy, just teach him or her "don't do what you are doing". Frightening your puppy by way of trying to correct their behavior is counterproductive. Correction is about changing behavior to conform with the "pack" e.g. -your family, human society at large, not traumatizing your pet.

Correct immediately A puppy does not have a very long memory. You must correct them immediately; if you wait, the puppy will not connect the behavior with the correction, which will leave you with a confused puppy. Puppies are programmed by their instincts to bite; but they must be taught that humans are not to be bitten. You must stop puppy biting, even when they give you play bites. At a young age, they must learn that biting humans simply is not acceptable.

Use the same sort of corrective discipline in order to stop puppy biting or when he jumps up at people. Jumping up in jest might appear to be cute in a little puppy. But just think of the consequences if an adult German shepherd or Saint Bernard were to jump up on you. It could jeopardize your very safety! So when your puppy jumps up at you, say 'No' and push him gently to the floor. When he does listen go you, praise him generously in order to reinforce his behavior.
