Stop Puppy Biting: Understanding Why Puppies Bite

There are certain elements of behaviour that you need to teach your puppy as soon as possible and one of them is not to bite. If you want to stop puppy biting in its tracks, you need to be able to identify why your puppy bites and teach him or her not to do so in relation to this. There are six reasons why all puppies tend to bite from six months to a year old, and all six need to be looked at before you can stop puppy biting. They are as follows:

•    Puppy explores its surrounding area to become familiar with objects and the texture of furniture in the room

•    Puppy bites to help ease the pain of teething, as babies tend to do when they are teething

•    Puppy has to strengthen his or her jaws and the new teeth that have come through

•    Some puppies have an unbalanced diet that is not nutritionally supportive of their needs and so will chew in an attempt to balance it

•    If puppy is board then he or she will often bite objects and even people or other dogs to relieve it

•    Puppy will bite if feeling threatened to ensure protection
