How to stop puppies biting revealed

One of the worst things that could possibly happen is that your dog could bite an unsuspecting victim. This problem is usually not dealt with or ignored by his owner and it can become more serious as the dog gets older. If you would like to stop this particular problem, you will need to address it as soon as you notice that it is happening.

Dogs are pack animals that have long since used biting and fighting amongst themselves as a form of establishing rankings and showing dominance. Your dog actually believes that you are part of his pack and will want to protect you if he senses a threat. This is the reason dogs sometimes lash out unexpectedly. This is especially noticeable in dogs that lack obedience training.

 

Usually when you have brought a new puppy home you will notice that they will bite you or even nip at you or family members. This is his way of feeling out what position he holds within the new pack. In most cases owners find this cute and may encourage this behavior by allowing them to do this. However by allowing this behavior you are giving him dominance over this pack.

A dog that believe he is dominant in the household will most likely try to reaffirm this position by biting or lashing out at you or another family member at some stage in the future. This is why it's so important that you know how to stop puppies biting. Teaching your dog that you are the leader of the pack and that you must be respected is the most effective way to avoid this situation. Showing your dog that you are the boss can be done most easily by using subtle body language.

Dog trainers use a few simple tricks to ensure they are always seen as the leader of the pack by their dogs. One of these tricks is to always feed your dog after you have finished eating. This demonstrates your superiority in a way that you dog can understand and will help you maintain your position as the Alpha Dog in your household.

You will also be firm on a constant basis to make him understand that you are the head honcho, it is important that as a puppy that role is established. However some dogs are harder to train, usually those that have been dumped off, have been abandoned by owners or have been sent away to shelters. These dogs have had to be the master of their domain for such a long time that they are now harder to believe that you are now a better master.

When training your dog or puppy not to bite, be sure you gain the respect of your dog and that you are seen as the leader of the pack. If you struggle to achieve this status, or you cant quite work out how to stop puppies biting, you may want to seek help from a professional dog trainer or use a quality dog training guide such as the one listed below.
