Puppy biting is a pretty common challenge for a new puppy owner. Puppy biting can actually be stopped a lot more easily than most people realize. It's important that before you focus on the actual training through the nuisance behavior, that you are realizing all of the things that you're doing that are giving your puppy opportunities to make these bad choices. You'll be able to stop puppy biting sooner if you follow these 7 rules for puppy training!

Happy Training! ~Ken
Great video. I learned that you have to also praise and reward puppy while handling the collar to not be associated with punishment. Your previous puppy biting video has helped me and my girlfriend so much with our 12 week sheltie. I let him nip while playing with me only on my terms and he’s starting to learn that he has to stop it when I tell him to. All thanks to your collar handling and “puppy raising” advice. It’s worked way better than only by rewarding good behaviour.

Glad you found it so helpful! Thanks for watching ~Ken
Thank you so much for these videos during these quarantine times! What should we be doing for a puppy who is biting our blankets and feet while we are sitting on a couch with them on the floor. Should we get up and walk away if he isn’t responding to staying down?
Thank you thank you thank you! You saved my sanity. I applied the three biting videos to my 11 week old golden and she stopped biting in 2 days! She also learned sit, lay down and leave it using the same principles in 3 days! I am amazed!!! God bless you!
Do you have links to those videos maybe?
Omg……that is so NOT happening with my lab/spring spaniel cross. Hes only getting worse. Glad to hear it’s working for you though.
@Cara Robertson how’s it now?
I’m loving your videos! We recently got a 17 weeks old Keeshond puppy and I’ve been putting your training to use . He’s very smart and it doing well! Thanks!
I love your approach-it makes sense! I have a teacup Pomeranian who is 13 weeks old and she does a lot of nipping so the timing of this video is perfect! The biggest problem I’m having is she hates the collar and keeps chewing on it and gets her lower jaw under the collar. She is so small and it’s hard to find a collar small enough where she can’t get her jaw underneath. Any suggestions?
Cat collars are really small
Lets be honest everyone, we are all watching this video only because our doggos are asleep. Great video though, hope it works on my little devil 🐕
This Comment is 100% CORRECT. MY boy wakes up stretches then starts to terrorizing
Nope, when he sleeps I snatch some sleep. Pathetic I know!
Literally me right now as my little devil is falling asleep lmaooo.

How did you know 🤣🤣
Seeing results on the first day. I also watched your other video about puppy nipping but using the collar was a huge leap in progress! Taking it day by day but establishing controls was a BIG first step.
We just got our first Aussie with a second on the way this fall and with 3 young children (two 5 yr olds and a 3 yr old) this information is so very helpful! Thank you so much!
While I typically love your videos, this puppy is WAY too calm. My puppy would be biting at every chance. Please re-do this video when the puppy is wild and crazy, so we can relate and get real help to, “STOP Puppy Biting”.
Exactly, because I need to see the real biting puppy. Honestly, this video didn’t help me at all….my puppy bites much more…..a lot more. Thanks
@Sarah Jooo I notice in many of the dog training videos, that the dogs aren’t as bad as the ones owned by the people looking for help. Sometimes they can’t even get them to nip or it’s once. Maybe they are well trained already after so many takes, maybe with someone “new” not owner, they are better (mine is at vet) but I only caught a few videos where the guy has a wild type dog, jumping, nipping, and he has to show how he/she holds them or walks away. It’s a long process so not for a 10 min video but you can edit.
@Therese yeah, my puppy just wants to play with/bite the leash. Really hard to train when she’s ignoring everything but the tasty leash lol
You may not have noticed when she said she had already worked with him hence his calmness.
@Evangelionl0vr I have the same issue and when I try put the leash on he turns on my hand. He bites up the dresser and my bed even his crate everything. He is 3 months old. This puppy is waay too calm

Do you feel like you’re struggling with your puppy-biting training? Maybe it’s time to change the way you think about the steps: https://youtu.be/FEh9GIROT1E
Would appreciate your feedback. Training 8 week old malinois puppies. Had the idea to redirect their biting into dental hygiene tolerance. Think it will be good. So much to consider.
Hey guys! I have a tiny Shih Tzu puppy, only 10 weeks, and everyone keeps saying we have to use a harness instead of a collar because of his size, he doesn’t stop when we grab it to discipline him though, he just keeps biting. Is there a different technique for a harness or are we just doing something wrong? Thanks for all your amazing insights!
How old can we begin training? I have an 9 week old pup but don’t know if this method would be “too rough” for her? Recommendations?
@Annie Scornavacca wondering this same thing!

I’m currently dealing with this exact issue, particularly zoomie hour. My pupper (5 month old Rotti girl) recently had (maybe still has, it was the last day of her anti biotics today) a bladder infection, and the weather’s been bad (cold and damp), so I couldn’t take her outside to play and walk her as much as I’d have liked to. And because she’s still a bit wild and clumsy, I couldn’t play that much with her indoors either.
So it got especially bad, usually right after waking up from a nap. She’d be so well behaved most of the day, during the walks, and then she’d go into insane doggo mode, zooming around going for curtains, table and chair legs, etc. and nipping at peoples’ hands, legs, feet, etc.
I’ve got her to calm down a bit over the last day, but this video should help a lot.
Our pup (Chessie) is 9 months now. We followed this method after watching this video. It took a few months and persistence but it has finally paid off. Just like raising kids, consistency is key. If you aren’t consistent you are sending mixed messages…they can’t rise to your expectations if they don’t know what that expectation is.
So good to know! Thanks this encourages me!
Very detailed breakdown. Great job with pack leader breakdown and just displaying the authority needed to be a leader. Love it. Keep it up! 😁👍

I watched all your videos on puppy biting and got over myself and cut up a leash yesterday since I was so tired and hurt from all his biting especially during witching hour.
Little man responded immediately and got calmed down right away with the technique.
Thank you so much for your videos <3
I am so happy and grateful to have found you! I’ve been watching your very helpful videos and can’t wait to imply these training techniques. We are in the process of rescuing a new furry family member and want to have a well-behaved pup and these videos will help us to be successful!
TYFS – Kayl I just wanted to thank you 🙏🏻 for sharing your time & knowledge with us!
You’ve shared some GREAT tips that have been extremely helpful with our new puppy!
Simple tips and excellent advice, worked for my nipping husky puppy.. in fact I was making mistakes I didn’t realize I was making this literally solved my problem in under 20 minutes.
OMG. THANK YOU! This has made a huge difference in just 3 hrs. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am going to follow your site and watch all your videos. I was doing a lot of things wrong even though I’ve always had dogs. What a difference with our 9week bitey puppy.
She’s such a boss trainer. I love the real world application that’s addressed here compared to other trainer videos. This is relatable and inspiring.
I’ve been doing the touching exercises with my puppy when I feed him. It’s worked well. His first vet visit went well and I’ve been able to trim his nails twice. He still freaks though with the tick removals. Gah! So many ticks!
