How to Train your Puppy to Stop Biting

November 9, 2019

tamil hi,Today’s video is sponsored by Petflow puppy biting is an inevitable part of having a puppy But it can also be one of the most frustrating and painful Flurry is just under four months old now and he’s going through a pretty significant puppy biting stage At the Windscreen yeah, I don’t need to windscreen anyway. Today, we’ll show you how to teach your puppy to stop biting you Yeah, this is the right dog for this video click thumbs up for flurry and trust me if you’ve got a puppy You’re definitely going to want to subscribe to my channel Pick up a copy of my book too for the complete guide to raising the perfect dog if you’re new to my videos Understand that I strongly discourage the use of training collars like choke prong and electric collars that’s because those types of collars are Specifically designed to train with pain and that does nothing to promote a bond between a person and a dog That’s the single most important Factor when teaching any dog I want to encourage you to get your pet supplies and your dog food from a company that feels the same way By getting your food Automatically shipped to you from petflow at any time interval you prefer you’re making your life easier and making a statement that you Support companies that put our dogs well-being first. I’ll have a link and a fantastic discount code to get your all set up in the Description below but have you ever heard that when your puppy is biting you like this that you should say ouch and walk away from them ouch And we can definitely say [that] now what we thought that this was a bit of a shallow way to Address this because you’re addressing the symptom the biting and not the cause your dog’s desire to interact with you There are two main reasons that [puppies] bite like this because they’re teething or because they’re trying to engage the world This is how they grab things if your puppy is teething you’ll definitely want to make sure they have Regular access to safe chew toys of lots of different textures now it’s going to take a few weeks to really resolve puppy biting and dogs can be really nippy until they’re about five months old or Even longer if it goes unchecked you must commit to being very patient with them right now you and your dog don’t yet have Really Crystal clear communication together and every interaction you have with them needs to be focused on building that communication Addressing puppy biting is one of the best opportunities to do that in addition to the exercises I’m about to cover make sure you have a strong focus on desensitizing your dog to being touched firmly by a person. I think he’s enjoying the massage So the more they’re used to this the less likely they are to nip at you You know I’ve even heard some dog trainers recommend biting your dog back So they know how it feels, but those are really silly ways to teach it on if your puppy play bites really excessively Then you’ve probably got a high-energy dog If that’s the case then exercise early in the morning and throughout the day is mandatory if you want relief Sooner rather than later Chances are if you’ve got a puppy biter on your hands You’re probably getting pretty good at predicting when they’re about to be bitey for example in Flurry’s case It’s all the time simply hoping for the best and reacting negatively when your puppy bites You is not going to resolve this efficiently fast success comes when you’re one step ahead of your dog now I know you can do this you’re a person there a dog most of you are smarter than your dog I hope first let’s talk about how you need to get good at using a toy to curb puppy biting Since I know that flurry is likely to bite me when I go to greet him I want to be one step ahead of him by having a toy that. I know he likes already with me He likes that snake so look this is okay to bite my flesh is not So we want to continually divert our dog’s attention To the toy the thing that is acceptable to bite over time your dog is going to start to realize alright So there’s some things I’m allowed to buy some other things I’m not just they’re not born knowing this so you have to take the time to teach [them] it’s not reasonable to expect a dog to just be calm all the time your goal should be to get them to release energy and Play when we asked them to rather than waiting for them to ask out on their own So now let’s talk about how to use treats to curb puppy biting I mean your dog has to know the proper conduct when encountering a person remember when your dog is biting You like we’ve been seeing flurry do they’re just trying to engage [you] we just have [to] show them and teach them that we prefer a different kind of engagement a more civilized form of Engagement since I know that flurry is very likely to start biting me when I engage him I’ve got to be one step ahead of Him so I’ve got a treat right here now We’ve done some basic training with him and he knows how to sit and a couple other things I’m going to encourage him to sit for a treat like that. It’s worth noting that many puppy biters Don’t know how to take a treat gently and they really bite your hands while trying to get that treat So if that’s your dog just simply treat them open palm It’s a good idea to have treats easily accessible at all times if you’ve got a new dog Let’s take all of that exuberant energy and turn it into learning power now right off the bat when you’re using treats That’s likely to subdue your dog’s desire to bite Just because they get in Food mode when a dog is in the mood to eat they tend to be a little less bitey since I know flurry is Likely to bite. I’m going to ask him to sit Nice work. Now, you might be wondering “hey, am I rewarding my dog for biting in this situation?” No, you’re not, because we asked him to sit first There ya go, good job bud. So ideally you asked your dog to do something else. Maybe it’s “sit”. Maybe it’s “lie down”. Maybe it’s “come”. That’s a good roll over buddy, and reward for the thing you DO like. so you can see by training like [this] We’re satisfying his urge to want to interact with us and our desire to have a well-behaved dog at the same time. Initiating a 30 second to two minute training session like this teaches your dog to respond to you, rather than simply behaving impulsively. This is why it’s important to make great effort to understand why your dog is acting a certain way rather than simply focusing on correcting unwanted behaviors after they occur. Imagine it if you were really consistent about asking your dog to sit every time you greeted them a thousand times in a row. Your dog would quickly get into the habit of sitting to greet you instead of biting you. How great would that be? Use both of these approaches that we’ve gone over so far and use them often when encountering any dog going through the puppy biting phase. Now, when you notice instances of licking where your puppy used to bite, you’ll know you’re on the right track! And you should notice that becomes a bit more frequent with time. Puppy biting can take anywhere between a couple of days and a couple of months with extreme biters so it’s really important to keep your expectations in line. So what do you do if you’re just hanging out in your caught off guard by the puppy biting? Well, number-one, promptly initiate one of the training sessions that we did today Exercise [your] dog or place them in a boring environment for a few minutes until they calm down a bit Parents of young kids, understand that it’s your responsibility to teach your puppy not to bite, not your kids But you can make it Petflow’s responsibility to get your pet’s food to you I’ll have a link in the description where you can get your dog’s food automatically shipped.

    Any advice for an 8 month old puppy who play bites me everywhere? We have tried everything from putting other toys she can chew in her mouth instead (goes back to biting me after a few seconds), giving her 30second time outs (doesn’t do anything), turning our back to her (which just makes her bite my back lol) and giving her treats (which works but when she’s done eating she bites again). We’ve had her since she was 2 months so after 6 months of trying we’re not sure how to get her to stop!

    I really love this video, it is extremely important to have your dog’s trusting

    extremely intelligent, even saved my neighbours kid from being attacked by some
    monkeys a few months ago. I trained my dogs with Remember

    My pup runs around the house, grabbing things he KNOWS hes not allowed to have (slippers, Tea Towel, my stuffed animals) and waits for me to chase him for them. I know he thinks its a game and I shouldn't chase him but if he pulls something off of a stuffy then i'm afraid he'll swallow it and choke…

  • Reply Pierce Motions October 22, 2019 at 5:22 pm

    I've heard from another trainer that puppies learn how hard to bite when they are playing. That you should first give them feedback on how hard they are biting so they know to be more gentle before teaching them to stop biting.

    Can anyone help me? My 6 month old schnoodle (schnauzer and poodle mix) is seriously high energy and I can't even pet him or cuddle with him without him biting me, jumping up on me, and running away from me. We are crate training him, so I'm not sure how this affects this. Either way, we give him plenty, I mean plenty of toys to play with and yet he still bites me. If you have a solution please reply.

    Zak, to grow the awareness on puppy training WORLDWIDE, you should post videos BY DIFFERENT people from AROUND THE WORLD training puppies in their native tongues so that people don't struggle with just English videos. It will help dog caregivers and "owners" bond with their pups better and your channel will gain MORE recognition too! You may even gain some different SPONSORS who will grow recognition on your videos for you! Expansion man, expand…
