Just like in human beings who learn well when they are young, training should begin when they are very young.

It is simple, just like how a mother dog yelps when a puppy bites its teat and the puppy understand that what it is doing is not right, you are also supposed to apply this. Release a sound which will act as a signal to discourage this behavior.Consistent repetition of the sound when bitten will make the dog understand that biting is bad.Kicking will only work negatively as it will only make your pet dog hate and fear you thus destroy the relationship.
