The right way to get your puppy to stop biting

Does your puppy bite your hands and fingers? At your wits end trying to figure out how to train your puppy to stop biting? I can truly say that I feel your pain, or rather, but not more.

There was a time when my hands were scarred and scarred by the bites of small canine teeth. To be honest, I read a lot of the conventional wisdom on how to train puppies, but I just couldn’t relate to them.

There seemed to be a school of thought that said you should think like a puppy. This may work for some people, but for me it just confuses my pet. Other techs advised to scold the puppy and I could not understand the logic of abusing my pet. After all, it’s only natural for a young puppy to bite, I just couldn’t figure out how to humanely tell him that my hands were off limits. Other techniques involve shaking the puppy. Now I know there are shaking techniques for adult dogs, but again I couldn’t follow the logic of doing this to my puppy. I didn’t want to terrorize him, I was just channeling his own natural actions.

Well, long story short, I started researching this issue and trying out techniques that would be humane and otherwise not scare or physically abuse my pet. My reasoning here is that puppy training techniques are an opportunity to establish a strong bond of affection between me and my pet. So, I wanted an effective technique that would work for any puppy and not make them scared or hurt.

I feel confident in saying that I have cracked the code on how to get your puppy to stop biting! It’s so simple and so effective that if you haven’t already thought of it, you’re going to be kicking yourself.

Here it is: every time your puppy starts biting and nipping at your fingers, very gently but firmly hold his muzzle closed. You won’t keep it closed for long because the puppy will start whimpering after 5 or 10 seconds. Also, you hold the muzzle very gently. Just tight enough to keep the puppy from opening. As soon as he starts whimpering, you can let him go and give him a chew toy if you have one on hand. Giving your puppy a toy is nice, but not essential for this puppy training technique to work. Do this every time your puppy “attacks” your fingers.

Try this and I think you will see very positive results within the first few days, possibly even within the first 24 hours!
