Q. How do I get my 10 wk old puppy to stop biting? He only bites me and my fiancé but licks everyone else. Tried bitter bite spray but he just barks.

A. When greeting your puppy, you should present an appropriate alternative for him to chew on. This can come in the form of toys. It's normal for this age for puppies to be bitey. When you greet him, immediately offer a toy for him to chew on and calmly pet him. If he bites you instead, there are a few things you can try. You can yelp loudly startling him just as a sibling would do. You can freeze not jerking your hand away since that can likely become a game to him and you can also keep him secured in a play yard where if he bites, you can simply remove yourself from him so he learns all a attention goes away when he bites. Only give attention when he is calm.
