Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
I’ve raised 4 guide dog puppies in training, worked with and trained countless other 7 week to 18 month old guide pups, and also fostered more than a dozen young puppies.
A mouthy, bitey, nippy, puppy is perfectly normal and I would actually be surprised if you were not experiencing some growing pains with a nippy puppy. One of the reasons why puppies stay with their litter mates until they are 7-8 weeks old is so they learn bite inhibition.
When puppies are playing, biting, and nipping each other play time stops when one of the puppies lets out a yelp and walks away. Redirect your puppy biting by slowly removing your hand from his mouth and replace with one of his dog toys.
At about 4-5 months our puppies lose all of their tiny dagger teeth and they are replaced with adult teeth. If you think your puppy is being overly aggressive or none of these tips are helping with your puppy you should seek a local professional dog trainer and set up an in-home training session so the trainer can experience your puppy’s behavior first hand. Always remember when raising and training your puppy to be consistent, persistent, and patient.
When Sampson was a puppy and he bit us, we would pull our hand away and place it over his nose (no slapping, just a gentle hand over his nose) and a NO BITE.
Delilah came to us much later and I’m still struggling to teach her not to snap when she takes a treat. I have found that when a puppy bites it is normally on the hand between the thumb and index fingers.
Hi, I am very new to puppy ownership, we have a 7 week 3 day old 1 quarter GSD and 3 quarter Sibe, male.
I’ve read and tried ALL the techniques mentioned here now for the past 4 weeks and my puppy has shown NO signs of improvement!


The redirect method is the first thing we always do when working with our puppies who like to bite. I think you’d benefit from an in-home training session with a professional dog trainer. However, when I was the one who chose to put my hand deeper in his mouth, he didn’t like that because it wasn’t his idea ;-).
Our friends have a Labrador that is now 10 years old and whenever I (or anyone else) goes into their house the dog continually nips and licks your hands. I love the detailed write up you give the readers and new pet owners that can help and guide them to solving this problem. It is horrible that he still bites and nips because if you go for a cuddle he could just turn halfway through. Therefore, his mouth will open up wider(instead of biting down) as he tries to get rid of the gentle pressure.
At first I tried to put any type of hot sauce on things he would chew that he shouldn’t, turns out he loves Tabasco sauce which is what I had use to previously get an old roommates dog from eating that chlorine dispenser in the pool. The owners then shout at the dog, but the poor dog doesn’t know any better as he’s never been told it is wrong since he was a pup! I used two books to research before I got him and one of the sections in one of the books suggests three ways to stop a puppy biting. He’s almost 2 now and still nips occasionally, but he seems to be slowly outgrowing it.
I cannot afford a professional dog trainer to come visit in my home so ANY other suggestions apart from those already listed here would be GREATLY appreciated! The first is ignoring (stop playing, avoid eye contact etc), the second was a squirt bottle and the third was holding his mouth shut.


If they were interested in biting or chewing on anything not allowed including our hands or feet, we would get their toy or bone that they could chew and replace it. I don’t support all the methods here or in the books, but if it works without causing distress then all well and good. My general rule with my Togo is to carry something else to nip in one hand (normally a rubber squeeky toy) and a squirter in the other and he is fine. Chopping and changing methods could be confusing, a squirter with a very very very mild vinegar solution in it works really well. Was falling over banging himself and was getting down about playing – totally miserable in fact.
All the floors downstairs are hard and cold, apart from the messy lawn which he finds all sorts of mischief on to put in his mouth. Then I have a large hard wearing bed for his bigger cage when he’s older, and an old mattress topper. But I found if I walked into the kitchen with a cold stone tile floor he stopped playing and sat or lied down, and you can approach and stroke him and touch him everywhere without a nip or fuss. Also having soft surfaces in the room like an island surrounded by hard slippery wooden floor means he has no interest atm of getting in the safe but difficult to manage nooks and crannies in the room, ie behind the sofa etc.
