We have an 11 week lab. Last week we started puppy preschool. Someone asked the same question. They said a couple things. First to say ouch loudly. Next they say to stop playing with them when they do it. Even if she didn't mean to do it, stop playing. The lady said if you say ouch and stop playing they will get the idea. The class I attend is a positive reinforcement class. We try not to say negative things to the puppy. I know it is working right now with my puppy. If he bites me while playing I stop playing, say ouch and look away...Good Luck..
It's a phase. my doberman pinscher worried us at first when he was 8-14 weeks old and biting our faces/hand/arms/feet. It could be his teeth coming in, or you may be picking him up too much. Try not to sit on the floor with him or let him on furniture, start training.
I've been having the same problem with my Bulldog. I started saying ouch loudly and putting her down and not playing with her this is working well so far. I also bought her a KONG puppy toy with Kong Puppy Ziggies to insert into it. She loves this and when she starts chewing on things that she shouldn't I just hand her that and it occupies her for awhile.
I do the same, sometimes when I come home my dobe is so rowdy I have to shove a bone in his mouth fresh from the butcher, and he is kept busy for hours. Just be firm with your pup, tell them "NO". remember-they can sense when you're afraid. The little ones can be worse than the big ones sometimes lol. I had a chihuahua and she was more mean than any of my dobes have been. Those little teeth can hurt sometimes. It is just a phase though, they are probably teething. Kongs do help... sometimes I put a little bit of peanut butter inside them when I am out of Kong fillers, they love that. The puppy bites will pass.
try getting the dog a chew toy.. or wear a glove when it is biting... its teeth are probably beginniing to come in... and they like to bite on things that are hard but yet dont break easy.... or in other words FLESH
My aussies pup did that alot. She loves to jump up and grab your fingers. It drives me crazy. The "ouch" thing didn't really work, so I would lightly grab her muzzle, and tell her "no teeth". It seems to work for the most part. Every once in a while she will try again, and all I do is say no teeth. She stops bitting, and just stares at me saying ok, but can I have some attention lol. Good luck
