Provide Chew Toys: Offer appropriate chew toys to redirect their biting behavior onto something safe and satisfying.
Use Positive Reinforcement: Reward calm behavior and gentle play with treats or praise, encouraging them to learn that biting leads to positive interactions.
Socialization: Expose the puppy to other dogs and people to teach them proper social boundaries and bite inhibition.
Time-Outs: When the puppy bites, calmly remove your attention and leave the room briefly to show that biting ends playtime.
Teach Bite Inhibition: Allow gentle bites during play, so the puppy learns how to control their bite strength without causing harm.
Avoid Rough Play: Refrain from using your hands or feet as play objects, as this can confuse the puppy about acceptable biting targets.
Professional Training: If biting persists or becomes aggressive, seek guidance from a professional dog trainer or behaviorist to address the issue effectively.
