Biting

back with Gazoo questions again....well the walking thing is certainly better...but the BITING....i hate it....it can be constant sometimes....the feet, the ankles....but only me, not my husband and then if we decide to relax and watch TV Gazoo hates it...and will just come over and start barking and biting....I hate yelling at him...but kind "no"s DO NOT WORK....and i do the laying him on the ground thing....i just hope this ends soon.....and yet no kidding he can be an angel.....turned devil instantly....he's so cute when he sleeps....LOL....
any biting advice....? similiar problems?

there are tons of posts on this so sift thru - but peanut butter on the hands, or butter is good for hand mouthing - redirect from the ankles and legs with toys or peanut butter on the hands and asking for kisses - and the 'no bite' command over and over and over again. keep a toy on hand and stuff it in the mouth as an alternative. - too much wild biting etc then off to the crate for a 5 minute time out - often they are just overtired - when mine got bitey at a young age it was either complete boredom or way overtired

it gets much better eventually....

he thinks you are a playmate more than your husband

He's a puppy doing what puppies do. Even though Hank wasn't an excessively 'bitey" puppy, I remember thinking that I may never get to watch a TV show uninterrupted again when he was young. I bought bully sticks in bulk and gave him one during those times to give me at least a half hour of peace. We also had toys scattered around to distract him.

I wonder if you have two different issues here. As suggested, the biting will give you lots of different threads if you search "puppy biting" or "landshark" in the search feature. There are lots of good suggestions and plenty of people who have felt your pain

The second thing I'm wondering about though is how much play time your puppy is getting over the entire day? Is anyone home with him during the day? What is his schedule like, is he getting plenty of evening playtime? I have to be honest, depending on the age of your puppy, it's sort of like having a toddler. When I had my first child my SIL said to me "You'll wonder what you ever did with all your free time." and it's true. You don't get to have a lot of down time to relax and not be bothered when you have small children or puppies. The good news is he should be getting old enough to start teaching him "calming" techniques, begin working on making his "stay" longer etc. Be patient, this phase will pass all too quickly, but as mentioned above, by Willow52, it is part of puppyhood. Have fun

My pup stopped the biting completely by 5 mos and by this time he had me bleeding 3 or4 times aday but putting him in his crate and GENTLY holding his mouth closed when he attacked and telling him no bite helped. When his teething was over so was his biting bear with it , it will end and hollering gets you nowhere

Have you read Before and After getting your puppy by Ian Dunbar? He has an extensive section on bite inhibition training as he sees this essential to training a puppy to be an adult dog who will never hurt a human with its teeth.

His approach is somewhat eye-opening as it teaches that before a puppy can be trained to stop mouthing altogether they must learn not to exert any pressure on human skin. Anyway it is an interesting read that made a lot of sense to me.

runner, I have the exact same issue with Tugg! He's 12 weeks,and has chewed off the 1st layer of skin from my hands; they hurt! I am his chew toy, ugh! I constantly pull my hands away & give him a toy, but he always goes back to my hands! And when i sit to play with him, he goes for my ponytail-he's given me a black eye, and cut the top of my ear wide open lunging at me to get to the ponytail with his razor sharp-teeth! sometimes I want to just cry-he wont cuddle with me or be calm.

Today, I am tired of the bleeding so I did a 'biting' search on this forum, and reading great advise from others who have overcome this, I've realized I havent been in charge, i've been spoiling him because i want to play with him too. I am now speaking firm with him, and stopping playtime when he does this. Guess it's gonna take time.

Good luck to us!

It is a puppy stage. my pup is 4 months old and I'm still going through it with him. I will say since he was younger it has gotten better. just a half an hour he was laying beside me and letting me pet him and out of no where he got real mouthy. I have used every procedure from the redirecting, time out, closing mouth, spraying water and we are getting better just not as better as i want him to be.

And i so know what you mean about the cute thing i swear just a few me and chester were just cuddling and i say to him "wow your actually being a sweetheart right now" and BAM! maybe 5-10 minutes later chester the land shark is at it again sometimes i think i just jinx myself.

88 cents at Walmart. It's in the produce section.



Spray in mouth, while saying "no bite, no bite, no bite." If he's like Bella, he might actually like it at first. If so, use a lot. This will likely stop the biting immediately. This part is important.....say, "good no bite," while petting him, right after. Also, every time he allows you to pet him without biting, say, "good no bite."

Don't pin him down to do it. Just grab his upper jaw, put it in his mouth, and squeeze. After a few days, you may only need to show him the bottle to control it.

Don't forget lots of praise!
