Biting and your puppy

Biting and your puppy

Your puppy is a wonderful part of your family, and you love that she has come into your life. However, you know there is still some room for improvement in your interactions, particularly when it comes to biting.

Your puppy will likely nip at you from time to time. This is a natural behavior, and is based on how she interacts with other dogs. They routinely bite at one another during play, so your pet will need to learn that it isn’t acceptable with humans. She will also bite to learn more about something as it allows her to use additional senses during exploration. Try to give her some space when she bites. This will teach her that this behavior doesn’t give her the attention she craves. Your local Thorold, ON veterinarian can help you care for your pet.
