(Bite Inhibition) Dog Training: How To Stop A Puppy From Biting And Train Dogs Not To Bite

Sharing buttons:

I'll be biting is a perfectly normal

behavior and if you puppies not by then

you have a problem now it's a normal

behavior but it's not pleasant for us

humans so we want to teach our puppies

not to bite us right well we do but not

quite so fast all right first thing I

want to talk about is the teeth because

puppy teeth and adult teeth are very

different and there's a very important

reason for this puppy teeth are very


they're like little tiny needles and it

hurts when when they bite you

adult teeth are very dull they're more

powerful they're not as brittle as puppy

teeth but they're more dull there is a

reason why puppy teeth are so sharp and

that is because they need those sharp

teeth to learn bite inhibition and

baikin admission is what allows your dog

to have a safe mouth not to be a danger

to you other people other animals okay

if we were to take our puppies and leave

them with their mother and their litter

mates for six months we wouldn't have to

have this issue of teaching our dogs

bite inhibition because what would

happen well our puppies would be biting

each other and when they bite down

somebody too hard they up they learn it

work if they don't don't go the dog have

got bitten - heart will snap at the

other dog and we'll say that's the way

Dolf the dogs communicate sustained hey

that was too hard

you bit me that hurt and that's how oh

okay well next time I go to Matthew I

can't mail you that hard okay this is

why puppies have such sharp teeth

because they're so sharp even just a

small amount of pressure currents so if

that small amount of pressure hurts and

causes another dog to Yelp what to

protect him with those super sharp teeth

and they learn to be that gentle with

that sharp teeth when they get their

adult teeth in now they think that that

gentle pressure hurts even less okay so

there's a reason why puppies have puppy

teeth they fill out around 6 months if

you don't know and then the adults teeth

come in that's also a big time for

destructive chewing to pop up by in

addition because we usually separate the

puppies from mom and litter mates at 8

to 12 weeks it now becomes our duty to

teach our dogs bite inhibition and if we

don't teach our dogs to have a soft

mouth you're you're living with the

danger because one day when you have

your 100-pound dog and you who you

didn't teach bite inhibition chew as a

puppy and he's injured and you don't

realize it and you go over and you pet

him on his back on his shoulder and all

of sudden he turns and bites you because

he's in pain and you didn't teach him by

in addition well now instead of him just

mouthing you up to just barely grazing

your arm making contact now you have a

broken arm because he never learned bike

in addition so I stressed this and why

it's so important especially for people

with large dogs or dogs with powerful

jaws it's a safety issue we have to

teach them as a puppy to by softly

because otherwise as an adult dog

they're never they're going to have a

beer it's gonna be danger it's a


ok so the question is usually how do we

stop puppy biting well before we would

reduce the frequency of the biting

we need to reduce the pressure so what

we're going to do is basically teach

them teach them how to fight soft okay

that's essentially what vitamin addition

is inspiring soft and we do this through

basically a game we're going to let the

puppy notice we have them on our lap or

playing with them and he starts nibbling

on our finger and then he nibbles on our

arm and we let them do it as long as

it's not hurting it's going to be

uncomfortable of course but it's not

terrible pain what we do is we wait

until he bites down a little harder than

then he's been doing can the second that

he bites down too hard we go what's

wrong with you why'd you do that I'm

angry but we just we just make a

reaction that then that hurt why did you

do that okay you can try and yell me to

the really high pitch oh I can do it

well let me do that hi but if you can do

that high pitch up like puppies do Duke

you can do that as well and the puppy's

gonna go well what did I do and he's

gonna be confused and then you go back

to playing with him a new roughhouse

with him and he's now in you and he's

mouthing you but it's not hurting and

you tell a good boy that's a good dog

and also he gets a little too excited so

he bites down a little too hard I guess

that was that was too hard you're really

sensitive women when I bite down and we

continually do this alright

and what we do is over time in the

beginning we don't react we don't react

- we only react to very very very hard

pressure okay pressure from the puppy

that was really curse but over we talk

over time we start reacting or we react

eventually to even the lightest amount

of teething

but this is slow business remember

puppies have the puppy teeth until about

six months so you're doing this over you

know the course of six months

essentially teaching the puppy how soft

to bite how ha you have to teach you how

powerful his jaw is so he knows so

eventually so you know we start off in

the drafting when the dog bites down at

this and then we start reacting when the

dog bites down like this and then we

start reacting mentioned we would adopt

B he really puts the teeth on us but we

have to teach him in that order how that

that's how powerful your jaw is again if

we left the dogs with mom and the litter

mates we don't have to do this but

because we take them away this now

becomes our responsibility ok so right

now we're working on reducing the

pressure of the body once we've done

that once we've gotten the body under

trol where the puppy now knows how hard

he's allowed to bite down and how

powerful is jaws now what we do is we

work on reducing the frequency of the

body okay so how do we reduce the

frequency well there's a couple things

that we can do the first thing that we

want to do is we want to redirect the

puppy all right

you should have toys in every single

room of your house apartment wherever

you live then you can redirect the puppy

to to bike when he bites you well my

thought was a puppy I have toys I carry

around in my pockets so I'm never

without one so when the company comes

running up to you and grabs your pant

leg we don't get angry or not mad hug

we don't you know pick the puppy we just

very calmly you can grab his collar pull

them off and here's your toy you know

people give it to me and you and you

kind of you know shaken in his face and

get them get them interested and make

some movement movement is very exciting

to dogs especially puppies so you start

moving that toy you try to redirect him

onto that and once he starts playing

that's a good talk and you pet him any

play with them but redirecting it is

very very important okay I will hear

people say that I try to redirect him

but he doesn't go for that toy okay well

he's not going for that toy we need to

look look at why why not maybe that's

why he's too boring dogs we should have

be rotating our toys I have lost count

of how many toys my own for my dog but

he never gets them all at once there's a

big chest and every day we rotate 5 5

min 5 5 toys coming out of the chest

five toys going and every day we rotate

them so the toys are always new always

exciting by the time we get to be out on

the planet like 100 toys or so by the

time you cycle through all of them he

thinks it's a brand new toy coming out

so number one if your puppy's not

interested in toys either we need to buy

some new ones to get them more excited

if you have a lot of toys start Prince

them away so we can rotate them so we do

go to redirect it's a very exciting

thing for your puppy puzzle toys as well

put them

about toys and it specifically puzzle

toys ok toys with food in them should

always have some toys and it doesn't

have to be a lot of food it's just

enough to get them off of your pants to

get them to stop biting you whatever it

is when you put down a little puzzle toy

with food food is a number-one priority

and resource for dogs you're a toy with

some food in it image is a small amount

of three little treats that is a higher

you know reward and higher priority to

your dog than your pant leg or then

chewing on your on your hand okay so we

redirected toys yeah puzzle toys are

great should have them filled up all

ready to go now another thing you can do

is setting up the puppy to to see that

what he bites you something bad happens

now one thing that is very affected are

the bitter sprays bitter apple is one

forget the other one there's a lot of

bitter sprays and what you do is your

before you're gonna play with your puppy

as you can spray it on spraying on you

if you yogi went close to your pant legs

take out their spray spray it on your

pant legs test it out small area first I

want you to be ruining your clothes most

of them are water-based though so you

can put it on pretty much anything

without risk but just test in a small

area first you can put it on your body

you put it on your hands be warned it

tastes it's at last ever once it's

really hard to wash it off even those

water-based and at last I've used it

before and I forgot that had sprayed on

my hands before I gonna play with the

puppy and I would eat something that I

got it on my finger from my fingers in

my mouth it's nasty it's really bad

which is why it works with puppy though

so you can spray them on your hands when

the puppy goes to bite you to go ahead

this is gross and that's a way to reduce

the frequency of the biting you can do

it's much Messier but it works as well

hot sauce you put a little bit of hot

sauce on your pants and when they go to

bite you and they get that super spicy

hot sauce

you know Tabasco it stops them alright

predators for first though because it's

just a pet it's less messy even having

hot sauce all over the place we redirect

we do

Spray here is the final and most the

most effective thing is what I call a

reverse timeout now you've seen the time

out video you know how to do timeout we

grab the dog we put them into my

situation someone whether there's no

food no toys nothing fun they go into a

bathroom a closet a hallway something

very boring very short period of time

reversed timeout is the opposite instead

of we instead of us taking the puppy and

putting them into timeout we go into

timeout so we're playing with a puppy or

play and also you bites down super super

hard so what do we do we don't react we

don't say anything we just stand up and

we leave the room and we leave the room

for 10 seconds we're not mad we're not


we don't yell the puppy we get up and we


Matthew 10 seconds we come back you know

we have heard nothing happened okay

let's continue playing come on oh that's

a good dog and then he bites us down

super hard pick it up we walk away and

we leave that's it we're not angry we're

not mad we're just teaching the puppy

hey when you bite down when you bite us

all play is over remember this is the

second part this is this is when we're

working on reducing the frequency of the

behavior in the beginning we're not

getting that the leaving because we're

teaching the puppy by addition once he

learns by an addition and we're trying

to reduce the frequency that's when we

do do these things okay but the reverse

timeout is very powerful because your

dog wants to be with you

hopefully the reverse time I was lonely

powerful if you're you have a good bond

with your puppy and he wants to be with

you dogs are social animals so as long

as you have a good bond with them then

timeout is a very effective tool okay

but instead of us taking the puppy

putting him in timeout we're leaving

we're teaching the puppy that when you

bite us all plays over binding this

means game over okay so this is puppy

biting remember your your little eight

week old puppy is just that he's eight

week old he doesn't know anything he

doesn't know he's not supposed to bite

he doesn't understand that that's not

something that humans like he just knows

how to be a dog he only knows how to be

a puppy all right so you're gonna have

that patience with this this is not

you're not gonna teach your puppy to

stop by you in a day you're not gonna

teach you a bike inhibition in a day

you're not gonna teach it to them in a

week it's gonna take multiple weeks a

couple of months and two to guarantee

that your dog has a safe Joe has a safe

mouth has good bite inhibition and then

to reduce the frequency all right by six

months generally speaking puppy biting

you don't deal with it anymore because

by six months once the adult teeth come

in they outgrow in this stage of

learning by inhibition they would that's

just the age they wouldn't even outgrow

it natural living with a group of dogs

in their mom okay so puppy biting it

takes work absolutely it's not the most

pleasant thing yeah it hurts having a

little puppy teeth you're having to deal

with the biting efficient it hurts it's

not pleasant but there it's just part of

having a puppy it's like having a human

baby and having to deal with changing


multiple times a day yeah it's not

pleasant people you generally don't look

forward to changing diapers at least no

one that I know and a lot of people

don't look forward to having to teach a

puppy by an efficient but it's

absolutely critical if you want ensure

that your dog as an adult it's going to

have a safe jump

all right so how patience keep in mind

he's just a puppy he does this is you

know it's our job to teach him what the

rules are and patience that's the

biggest thing I can preach here have

patience with him go slow follow these

rules and they'll be able to have a dog

who has the safe joggin as an adult

resource bargain is when your dog has an

object like a toy maybe their food bowl

they can even a resource card places

like spots on the bed and when some
