Puppy Training Tips: Stop Puppy Nipping

Puppies have sharp teeth. As they instinctively use their mouths to explore and taste things (including you) and when playing, those sharp teeth ache when they take a puppy with them. You are going to get chained to your new puppy. Accept this as a fact. However, there are steps you can take to discourage them from doing so and protect yourself from the scratches and cuts of those sharp small teeth at the same time.

Since it is normal for a puppy to do his work - for example, they do it to their siblings as part of growth and development - so one of the steps to take is to try to mix with other dogs.

Let them do whatever comes naturally to them if possible. You may find it quieter when you return to the company because they have enjoyed the other dogs and are less likely to take you when they see that they are playing and see you as an alternative to dogs.

Another useful by-product is the mixing of other puppy dogs. Puppy will learn how to interact with fellow fangs that can help when going out on a picnic for example because a puppy has acquired basic social skills comically.

Just like you and I played with other kids in the area when we were young and learned at the same time, you could let Gorock do a dog reward.

Another way you can help to reduce the tendency of the puppy to take you in the right direction is to build the right behavior in the usual training routine and general interaction with the puppy. Basically, encourage and reward good behavior but do not punish bad behavior.

While this may sound like a contradiction, it really is not.

If you punish a puppy for bad behavior, expect revenge. Puppy does not know why they are punished and they will (lightly forgive me) go back - quite literally - with these sharp teeth and take you in confusion because they see it as an attack and they instinctively respond. Well, right?

When a puppy decides that the time has come to take you in place, instead of motivating yourself, yelling at them or (worse) beating them (please do not), try to ignore them until they stop, then gently bring them back on the carpet or even in their bed.

Then when they stop, go back on the floor, in their bed, etc. Give them lots and lots of praise.

By doing this, you teach the puppy that when they do not get your attention they stop.

When they stop they get the praise. More fun for the puppy. Taking these simple steps will help reduce puppy puppy instinct and you will have a better trained and better behaved puppy as a result.
