How to make your dog stop biting

Updated on April 23, 2013

Below I have explained that how should you treat your dog when he/she attempts to bite you. This is a serious problem which can be removed only by giving your dog proper training. If these steps are followed strictly by you, then he/she will never bite someone, unless you ask him to do so.

1- Firstly, when your dog bites you, don’t take it as fun, even if he is fully vaccinated. Immediately take your hand out of his mouth.

2- You need to gently hold your dog’s mouth. Give him a gentle tap on his nose & say “No” staring at him. He/she will gradually start learning that you don’t want him to bite you.

3- You need to stop playing with your dog for that moment. Go out of the room or sit aside & cross your arms. This will teach your dog that you don’t like when he/she bites you.

4- Never hit your dog when he bites you. Showing a little anger is Ok, but never hit him. If he/she is a teething puppy, give him a chewing toy. He will not be tempted again to bite you.

5- Don’t change your behavior in front of him. Becoming too much angry or started crying etc. when he/she bites you can have a negative impression on him.

6- If your dog still continues biting, leave him alone. It will show him that his biting doesn’t affect you. When he stops biting & settles down; you can continue your play or affection with your dog.

7- Consistency is the “key”. You need to do this with your dog on a regular basis. Award him if he gradually stops biting you & starts listening to you. Also tell your visitors, not to allow him to bite their fingers or toes.

  • That’s it. I hope this article helped you. Any Queries or Suggestions are duly invited.

      You should never show too much anger to your dog, specially puppies. All the best for removing his biting problem.

      I adopted a black lab pup and have been struggling with the biting problem. I will attempt some of these suggestions as I have been doing the exact opposite of what I should be doing. Yelling at her in anger when she bites.

      Thanks for the suggestions.
