A recent reader wrote in and asked me to address the cute puppy but very obnoxious puppy syndrome called teething! Your puppy needs are to run around, chew in order to loosen those baby teeth, and learn some boundaries while being trained. Ideally, it's best to start teaching and instilling the principals that biting is NOT okay when your Chihuahua is still a puppy. Like all dogs, Chihuahua puppies will go through a teething stage where they will likely try to bite and chew on anything they see. Kong toys are some of the toughest dog toys on the market, making them perfect for a teething Chihuahua. Keep your Chihuahua confined to a crate or gated area of the house when you aren't able to supervise them. I can't stress just how important it is to have plenty of toys for your Chihuahua to play with. My Chihuahua Tipsy will not stop biting my Mum want him out of the house but i love him soo much i don’t want to part with him.
My chihuahua richard is 10 and had his shots 3 days ago when I went to pick him up he went to bite me.

What often happens is that people try to cuddle with their wired for sound, squirmy, hyper, needing exercise puppy. Often when I teach or go into a private clients home to train,  I notice many toys but rarely the right type of teething chew bones.
Distracting your puppy with giant stuffed toys and lots of exercise, creating a space for him to chew and loving and  bonding with him when he is calm will ultimately create the behavior you want, until his adult teeth grow in.


While this is a common trait among the Chihuahua breed, it's something that you must control if you want to provide a safe living environment for them and everyone inside your house. These teachings will then carry on into their adulthood where they are naturally less likely to bite unprovoked for no reason, but this isn't always an option.
Owners that allow their Chihuahua pups to chew on their fingers and hands will have a greater chance of raising a biting Chihuahua. When your Chihuahua bites, gnaws or attempts to lash out at you in aggression, say "NO" in a firm manner and ignore them. When owners don't take their Chihuahuas outside enough, they will try to let out their energy in other ways, one of which is through biting.  I know it's hard for some owners to take their Chihuahuas out every couple hours, but you need to get into the habit of allowing them to run free for at least two 30-minute sessions each day. I used soo much money to get him but now he is disappointing me.Ave tried even silent treatment but Tipsy bites everything including my Mum sofa set.

Training isn’t always easy, but your Chihuahua will eventually come around if you remain persistent and focus on positive reinforcement. As with other dog breeds you have to start with the basics, teach your pitbull puppy where to get his food and where to find his water dish to prevent him from quaffing water from the bowl. The teething process is extremely painful, so your baby pitbull is trying to find something hard on which to chew in order to alleviate the pain. The coolness will soothe his achy gums while the hardness will allow him to have something solid to bite into. But play biting is a natural thing for a puppy- she is trying to use her mouth to learn about the world around her. Although the mountain dog mix is known for being a gentle giant as puppies Saint Bernard dogs and Bernese mountain dogs are just as mouthy as any Chow Chow or Akita. The second teething phase- which takes place when the adult teeth are coming in- will happen at six to ten months of age. Having a zillion toys on the ground often don’t get noticed, especially if you don’t have the right toys for the right stage! Up until now, he has been well-behaved, but recently he has started biting when he gets excited.
Many people with teenage pup’s often feel the urge to pass out body gear with helmets to all guests wanting to say hello to their now BIG puppy.
As cute as their new ball of fur was and as great as training had been progressing, there seem to be one MAJOR kink. After reading a ton of information on how to deal with this puppy nipping, he wrote in to ask me to please explain what to do about this nipping, biting and horrible behavior!
Some owners may have adopted an adult Chihuahua from a rescue, or they may have simply "overlooked" this part of training. A small Chihuahua pup gnawing on your hand with dull teeth may seem completely safe and harmless, but it send the wrong message that biting is okay.
When there are no toys around for your Chihuahua to play with, they will naturally try to play with some of the more fragile items and accessories in your home.  Unfortunately, things like rugs and the carpet aren't built for a Chihuahua to play with, and as a result they will likely get destroyed.
Therefore, proper training must be done to make your Pitbull puppy the best behaved pup in the block. So Hazel’s piercing puppy teeth have been sinking into my hands, arms and feet since we brought her home. At this age pup’s are just beginning to chew so biting into a stuffed toy instead of your arm helps the play process. At first, the bites were far a part and soft, but lately they’ve become more frequent and have started to hurt.
Information on how to deal with this behavior is often incorrect and can vary from muzzle grabs to teaching the owner to  scream ouch. If your puppy is pestering your older dog, you need to separate them for a short time and allow your puppy to chew a teething toy behind a baby gate.


If your Chihuahua were to lash out and try to bite a larger dog, it could provoke an attack in retaliation that causes serious injury to them. In fact, it's not uncommon for owners to come home only to discover their teething Chihuahua has torn up the furniture, curtains or carpet.
For this reason, it's recommended that you give your Chihuahua pup something else to bite on instead of your fingers. Keep giving your Chihuahua treats when they are good and making them go to timeout when they are bad. She’ll be sleeping beside her, and when she goes too move her, to get up or shift around, etc.
On the other hand, when your Chihuahua is docile and affectionate, show your appreciation with petting, praise and the occasional treat. And when she gets to the point of being mad and lashing out, she sees red and sometimes wont come back from it for a straight minute or so, so saying no doesnt always work.
He has to learn this to make him wait for food and not bother you while you eat at the table. They bite when they play fight but when one pup bites too hard the other pup will yelp loudly and stop playing. In the meantime, think exercise and reverse psychology with trading in your arm for the right toy. We have tried various ways to discourage this behavior, such as giving him more toys to focus his attention on or giving him chew toys whenever he starts to bite, to channel the behavior. Redirecting such behavior means creating a little structure within your daily routine, reassessing chew toys, re-organizing how your dog gets exercise, and where,when and how you play with him.
Whether your pup has chewed something or gone to the bathroom in the house, get the leash, put it on and guide them over to what they’ve done wrong. Puppies have short spurts of energy not dissimilar to human toddlers and meeting those exercise needs will help.Timing is everything.
It may take a little more time and effort, but you can still teach them the boundaries of what's acceptable and what's not when it comes to biting.
Even if you don't particularly enjoy being licked by your friendly Chihuahua, you should still give them a treat for being gentle and not aggressive.
He seems fine with my daughter although I’m not letting her get too close at the moment and is fine with my partner. However, 4.5 million people in the United States are bitten by dogs every year and most of them are by animals they know. From the beginning puppies are learning the boundaries of biting and it is a lesson that needs to continue when they leave the litter to join their human family.
The key here is to realize that teething and biting for a 10 week-old puppy is only a phase during development. The act of chewing on something needs to be isolated for your puppy by creating a “chew your chew bone” time! If we take him outside with a coat on (we are in a colder climate) and bring him inside where it is warm and try to take his coat off, he bites us.
Frye is very well socialized when it comes to other dogs, but we live in a residential area where there are a lot of children. Trying to explain to coworkers that they were NOT closet heroine addicts became a common dialogue during coffee breaks. Our main concern is that when others try to play with him, he might get over excited and bite them. Chewing a bully stick, for example, will also help tire him out and give him something to focus on that’s not a toy.
