Nipping/Biting

If a pup nips or bites, is holding his mouth shut a good way to correct? Just holding it for like 5 or 10 secs. o_o

I posted this in another thread, that is why it pays to read other threads that relate to your problem

If you allow a dog to bite in play you are giving them the right to think it is ok to put teeth on people. I see this happen time and time again when they (the owners) freak out because the dog put teeth on them in a manner other than play. It always comes down to dogs that were allowed to mouth. If you give them the ok to put teeth on you in play then it is ok in anger of frustration. Dogs are very black and white animals when you start allowing things in one instance but not another you start to get gray and that causes confusion.

At this age the puppy should not be putting teeth on you at all and if she/he is then you need to step up the correction. My rule with puppies is they are never allowed to put teeth on human skin. Even if they do not put pressure it is wrong and they will get corrected even for the thought of teeth to skin. Then when adults they learn teeth NEVER EVER go on people in anger or play.
If your puppy tries to put teeth on you I would grab the puppy by the scruff and say a sharp "NO!" as soon as the pup stops then praise. if the scruff doesn't stop the behavior then try grabbing an ear and pinching a little. Not to rip off the puppies ear, lol, but enough to cause discomfort and stop the behavior.
Puppies should stop bitting after about 2 weeks if you correct every time.
hope that helps.

What about with other dogs, would you allow them to play like that, or how far would you let it go before stepping in?

I completely agree PK, this is the only natural way for pups to learn bite inhibition. And far too often, the pups are separated from their litter mates before this crucial lesson is learned. And even then, we have to teach them that human skin is a no, no.

When Fly was little she liked to nip my hands a bit when she got caught up in play mode and almost every time I would grab her scruff, bop her nose and firmly tell her "NO BITE!" But i wouldn't make a big deal about it. I also used sour apple spray once in awhile, that way if she tagged my hand she would immediately get that sour taste in her mouth and stop.

My friend actually bit her dog back, and he stopped biting.... I think it was wrong to do,but it was a bit amusing. The dog was so confused.

dogbite-expert.com is an unknown quantity at this point
Good advice

Just make sure that no one else is allowing that behavior or your efforts will only work with you but your dog will still have the habit.

My 4 month old pup is just starting to nip and it is a concern. She is mostly doing it when she is told no for something. It's almost like she is frustrated and she snaps her mouth at me. Tonight I was sitting on the floor and she got right in my face and I told her back and it was like it pissed her off and she snapped at me. I told her no and she then barked at me, which she never barks. I have corrected her by saying no, bopping her on her nose, grabbing her by the scruff of her neck and even flipping her over until she is submissive to me. Nothing seems to work 100%. Help!!! Is she becoming aggressive or is this just puppy defiance? I need some input. She is also loosing a lot of teeth right now, could that make her cranky? Is there a terrible 2 type thing for dogs around 4 months.
