Hi. I know that puppies love to bite and chew on things, but our pom puppy is out of control. I have asked for advice on here before but nothing seems to help. We have tried filling a pop can with beans and shaking it at him when he bites, hold his mouth closed when he bites, giving him a chew toy, leaving the room, ignoring him, and nothing seems to help. He loves biting your ankles when you walk and your hands or other body parts when you sit with him. He is a great puppy other than this, so we tried to just overlook it, but he is starting to draw blood everytime he bites. I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks
have you tried yelping? this may help. dogs in litters yelp when they get bit to hard. this how dogs learn bite inhibition. check out realitybites.com and look unde sgression thre is a whole thread on bite inhibition.

I used to have a Pom (Yogi) who died last year but I do remember him at 4 months old. He was constantly biting our ankles, fingers, and toes. I finally got a little chew tow that I carried around with me and everytime he would go to bite, I would stick it in his mouth. If he spit it out ,I would put it back. It took awhile, so be consistant and patient. Your Pom will get it after awhile. I don't know about your's, but mine was VERY bullheaded.
Try filling up a squirt bottle with a water and vinegar mixture. When he bites at you, spray him in the face and say NO! This works for my Malt/pom, although he has to be reminded all the time. Sometimes all I have to do is hold up the bottle now and he will stop. But he has a short term memory and still loves to attach himself to my ankles and I literally just drag him down the hall when I'm walking.
