In order to train a puppy to stop biting, it's helpful to use a leash correction to let them know what they're not supposed to do. Discover why it's important to praise a puppy that has stopped biting with help from a certified professional dog trainer in this free video on dog training and pet care.
Hi this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training in Miami, Florida. In this clip we are going to talk about using the leash correction to stop your puppy from biting. Again one of the things that you want to do when you are making a leash correction is a quick jerk you know, when they are doing what they're not supposed to, when they are biting or whatever it is. So again if he had his hands in my mouth I would give him a quick leash correction and as soon as the biting stops he gets petted. Remember that they never take it personal so you shouldn't take it personal when they bite you or when they are play biting you because they are just learning and it is up to us to give them guidelines. So a quick snap on the leash and a sharp no will do a world of wonders for you. So just keep that in mind and don't take it personal. The just want to play and they don't know what they're teeth are for yet so they're just exploring. Again if he is mouthing, a little snap and praise when it stops.
