My 4 month old Westie will not stop biting! I know that he is a puppy and he's teething, but he bites hard and nothing I have tried works. I know he is playing, but the "shaking can" didn't work or yelping like one of his litter mates. Any advice?? I love him to death, but I am afraid he will never stop biting.
"When the canine mouths you, insert your thumb into the bottom of his mouth with your thumb pressing down on the soft part of the mouth under the tongue. At the same time, your fingers should be curled under the canine's chin, applying slight pressure to the chin. In other words, your thumb and fingers should be pressing toward each other, with the canine's chin between your thumb and fingers. While doing this, follow up on the verbal command of "No Bite!" or "Off" or some such command that you will use throughout the life of your animal. Most canines will react by pushing at your thumb with his tongue and trying to pull his lower jaw out of your grip. After a few times of doing this, the canine will eventually realize that mouthing people results in this reprimand, and the animal will then learn to keep its mouth off of people. "
