The Best Way To Stop Your Dog From Play Biting

By Josh Maxwell

Your nice little puppy is full of happiness and is taking pleasure in exploring his new home and getting acquainted with his new family. There is one thing you can guarantee will happen though, your little pet will start to nip. It’s important to stop this early before it develops into a more serious problem so lets look at the best way to stop your dog play biting.


When they are still with the rest of the litter, puppies will use their mouths to communicate. Dog play biting is a normal type of puppy play in the pack. If a puppy bites another pup too hard, the puppy will yelp and this is how they learn when they’ve gone too far.


Once you bring your puppy home and he joins his new ‘pack’, it’s up to you to make him realize that YOU are the leader of the pack. You should let out a high pitched shout if he bites you.

Turn around and don’t pay any attention to your dog instead of telling him off and shouting at him. Other ways of showing that you’re the leader of the pack are to ensure that you and your family eats before your dog.

When your puppy is still under 15 weeks old, you need to encourage licking as a good, friendly way of using their mouth. You should reward them once they cease biting and begin licking.

Rub something on your hand that your dog would like so they will lick it off! It is vital not to be too aggressive at this stage in the game since this will encourage aggressive behavior

As soon as your puppy becomes a little bit older, they will want to explore even more and they will also start teething. They bite you due to the fact that their mouth is sore. If this is the reason, you need to ensure your puppy has something to chew to soothe the pain of teething.


#1 Make it clear that you are the leader of the pack.

#2 Praise and reward high-quality behavior.

#3 Remember that the top way to put an end to bad behavior is to ignore it and turn the other way. This is what the mother and other puppies do when your puppy was still with the litter.
