Q. How can I stop my 9 week old puppy from biting?
AMANDA MILLER COOK
A. This is common behavior in a young teething pup trying to learn more about their surroundings. You can help teach the puppy by providing plenty of safe chew toys and treats such as Nylabone and bully sticks. Only greet the puppy while calm and walk away if pup keeps biting. When puppy bites just freeze and offer a toy to redirect puppy to instead. Also ensure pup is getting plenty of exercise. Feeding meals out of a kong is a good way to provide mental stimulation which is also a form of exercise.
