    Realize the importance of teaching your dog not to bite. If you allow puppy biting, it may get out of control and your puppy will not learn to control his bite. This can lead to serious behavioral issues when your puppy reaches adulthood. If you suspect your puppy is biting out of fear or anger, talk with an animal behavioral therapist, who may be able to help.[9] how to train a puppy 👍how to how to train a puppy for X Trustworthy Source American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Leading organization dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty Go to source
    • It is not acceptable for puppies to bite people, or other animals, unless they are in true physical danger and need to defend themselves.

    Take safety precautions if your puppy bites. If you''t have a clear understanding of the training approach and goals. If the muzzle isn''s taking things too far by removing access to you as a playmate.
  • Communicate these limits through your body language, energy, and verbal communication. This will mimic the natural way puppies would be ostracized if they played too rough within their litter.
  • Dogs learn best when we show them what to do instead of what not to do. For instance, try smoothing a little peanut butter on the back of your hand. Present it to the dog, and if they lick instead of using their teeth, mark that as correct with a clicker or a verbal indicator, then give them a treat.
  • Build on the previous exercise by adding a command. Once that''ve tried stuff from the internet and training classes, with not luck. What can we do?

    It sounds like your wife and son are regarded differently by the dog. You need to figure out what it is that''t become over excited. One way to do this is to play for 15 second bursts, where you set down toys and don''time out''t respond to a squeal (to tell him it hurts) then get up and leave the room. Only return when the puppy is quiet. Alternatively, play in 15 second bursts with a calm-down period of a few seconds in-between, so that he doesn''t feel pressured into giving in. Eventually, the puppy will learn the fastest way to get his collar on is to be good.

    My pup only bites men. Why?
    Community Answer
    Your pup might have had a bad experience with a man or men in his life before.
  • Question
    Why would my dog always get angry when children play with him?
    Community Answer
    Your dog might not be angry at all! Puppies like to play fight by nipping and jumping at one another. Sometimes, this behavior continues into adulthood. It''s face?
    Community Answer
    They were likely not introduced well. Put both dogs on a leash. When the pup attacks, pull her back and firmly say "" Keep repeating this until she realizes that biting another dog is not okay.
