Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Nipping, mouthing, puppy biting, we have all kinds of cute definitions and ways of explaining away the problem of puppies putting their teeth on us, but the truth is it isn’t cute.
Some people will say mouthing is different than nipping and nipping is different than biting and while I understand and agree with most of what they are saying the problem is that puppy teeth are going on human skin or clothing! This is one of those puppy complications that most people face at some point and the biggest problem is that people don’t realize puppy biting is a problem until it becomes so frequent that they can get nothing done, OR it really starts to hurt! Puppies have some of the sharpest little teeth on the planet!  I HATE puppy teeth!  And, when wielded insistently it not only hurts it can leave you with a bloody body part! Dogs can only learn to play with other dogs by playing with other appropriate non-aggressive dogs.   I think dog play is a crucial behavior for puppies to learn when they are young!  Older dogs will teach them the appropriateness of how hard to bite, and young dogs can teach them how fun it is to play rough sometimes.


95% of new puppy owners think this behavior is cute at first, and therefore they allow it to continue until it gets out of control to where the the puppy is biting hard or maybe even biting kids.
Each puppy is different some puppies will innocently mouth for months and never escalate to a bloodletting but some puppies realize very early on that their human not only tolerates but likes this behavior and things quickly escalate to harder and harder bites. A tooth on skin is never cute!  Even if you don’t have children imagine how the same behavior would feel to a 2 year old child or a 95 year old senior with fragile skin; if it is not appropriate for this human dynamic it should not be appropriate for you! Figure out what type or reward or payoff your puppy is getting out of mouthing, nipping, or biting.
My puppy was trying to play, so I made sure that each time he used his teeth it equaled the loss of me and my affection.  If a behavior equals the opposite of what you want and is never rewarding, it extinguishes itself pretty quickly!


Remember, mouthing, nipping and biting may be instinctual, but it should never be tolerated or rewarded!  If you nip this in the bud early you will have a social dog that has learned bite inhibition and how to control himself!
