Bite Inhibition

Hello. I'm new to this site and just recently rescued my first pitbull pup. He's approx. 4-5 wks old right now, and came from a backyard breeder who severely neglected the mother and pups. Supposedly the mom had rejected the puppies but who knows what the real story is. When we got him he was infested with fleas and worms, but with a little TLC he is flea free and on the way to being worm free as well.

Anyways I was wondering what I should be doing to help him behavioral wise since he was taken from the mom and litter mates way too soon. I know bite inhibition is a major concern. We do have another dog (Black and tan coonhound) but she hasn't been interested in him. As soon as he enters the room she just walks the other way and he is more interested in us at the time being. I know this will change once he's a little older, but what can I do now?

thank you!

Hi, You can easily teach the puppy yourself while playing with him. If he ever bites your fingers too hard just make a yelp and stop playing with him so he knows he hurt you. He will probably not notice it right away since he is still too small but he will eventually know how to bite softly and when he starts teething he will most likely want to bite everything just have patience don't be to hard on the puppy make everything positive for him and good luck hopefully he gets all healthy soon

Redirect the biting. Keep a chew toy handy when playing with him, like mentioned above give a little yelp when he nips and redirect him to the chew toy. Eventually it will sink in that the toy is what he should be biting.

Bite Inhibition

It's more potential for behavioral issues as they grow. 4-6 weeks is a fear stage (they have another stage for a bit usually sometimes in the 6-10 month marks as well) and can cause lifetime dramas. You don't want to be too harsh since is a itty bitty puppy removed to soon but you can't expect it to understand why he was on the bed and couch when he was little and now you want him to get off. Stuff like that. Can cause anxiety and behavioral issues. The problem is he isn't up to date on his shots so going out in public isn't something you can do I would try to find owners and dogs you know and trust are healthy and vetted to help socialize him not just with your own older pup. My boy was removed from his litter early and is the best dog ever for me and a douche bag to everyone else and most other animals lol. I love him dearly but it's not always easy to manage. You seem like you are Starting to do research now so good for you!!!

I also have my big a chuck it ball when he would get mouthy. He chews them like gum there is always one close by. The ones without fuzz not like a tennis ball but the hard plastic chuckit balls.

Please post pictures. Not very nice talking about puppies and not posting a pic
