Help My Puppy Won't Stop Biting Me!!!
of the biggest problems people have after adoption their new puppy is
training him/her to stop biting them and their children. First, you
must be very CONSISTENT, and everyone must use the same method to not
confuse the puppy. Puppies play, learn and explore by using their
mouths, it's up to you to teach your puppy that biting is not acceptable
behavior and is very painful. Puppy teeth are razor sharp and when a
puppy bites you, it hurts!! One thing to avoid is allowing your
children to run away screaming when the puppy bites on them or their
pant legs, etc. The puppy will think the child is enjoying it and
having a great time! Instruct your child to stop, scold the puppy "no
bite!" and offer him/her a toy. When the toy is accepted, praise the
puppy for chewing on the toy rather than fingers. Below are a few
websites that will help give you more ideas on stopping your puppy from
biting people's fingers. Please check several out and see which method
seems to work best for your puppy. You may also wish to discuss some
suggestions with your vet, they are usually a very helpful resource when
problems arise. The websites below are in no particular order and we
do not favor or endorse any of them.

consistent training, your puppy's bad biting habit should subside
within two weeks. It will seem like a very LONG couple of weeks, but
eventually you'll realize that he/she is no longer doing this. It
really will pass!!!
Good luck and enjoy your new puppy, before long he/she will be your best friend and know all the "rules".
