Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Anyone who has been on the receiving end of sharp puppy teeth knows how much their bites hurt. Keep in mind that puppies are often teething at the same time that they are learning about not biting, so it is important to make sure that your puppy has appropriate chew toys. All this socialization serves a purpose related to biting because a well socialized dog will know how to play with other dogs and will not bite at the first sign of a threat.
If you have young children, do not leave them around your puppy until it has learned not to bite people.
Puppies need to be trained to know how to be gentle with their mouths so that they do not hurt their human companions. Another useful training method to use for biting and other undesirable behaviors is redirection.


Puppy socialization is important to help your puppy learn normal dog behaviors.[9] Socialization starts from a young age when your puppy is with its mother and other puppies.
This will only instill fear in it and fearful puppies (and dogs) do not make good companions. The younger the puppy is when you start training it, the more it's likely to follow the rules. If some people allow biting and others don't, this will only confuse the puppy and make training it more difficult. You can train your puppy to stop biting by using puppy bite inhibition, redirection, and other strategies like exercising your puppy often and seeking the help of a professional dog trainer.
You take over socialization training after the puppy leaves its littermates and mom (around 8 weeks of age) up until it reaches 12-14 weeks of age.


Puppies often bite or nip because they want to play or are bored.[10] Teach your puppy that games like fetch, Frisbee and tug-of-war are acceptable for playtime. During this time, expose your puppy to other puppies, dogs, and cats, humans (of all shapes, sizes, and sexes) along with different situations such as car ride, parks, and the neighborhood activity.
