I love these practical real-life scenarios. This was a fantastic video all puppy-owners should watch
Playing with other dogs really helped erase my puppy’s biting problem. When he was old enough, I started taking him to the dog park every day. Not only did the exercise completely tire him out, but older dogs and other puppies helped him learn not to bite too hard. He’s now 8 months old and the only time he bites me is when he accidentally gets me while we are playing with a toy.
Wow! I never thought about interactions with other dogs as a resolution. This gives me hope! LOL!!! Thanks for sharing!
@A Jones dogs are pack animals like most pets they need the pack or parents/ alpha to help them develop good manners. The youngest dogs always gets hazed into acceptable behavior by the older dogs.
I kinda wish people would train me like this. Get a new job and just have her next to me feeding me treats when I do good

I love this lol. Thanks for the laugh
may i suggest: get a dom and let them train you lolol
Spouses would do this
Well… there’s sites for that if you’re into that kind of thing 😆💀 just search Puppy Play in YouTube and your mind will be blown. It’s very strange lol
THANK YOU! This is so valuable, we’ll be bringing our girl home in a few weeks and I’m binge watching training videos. Thank you also for recording this in a proper home setting. It really gives genuine perspective.
What are you feeding him there? How much food rations do you use to reward the dog during the day? The proportions etc? Great video by the way. You are a very compassionate trainer. I’ll definitely use this training method for my lab for sure!
Most recommend today that you don’t bowl feed puppies. Feed almost all of their meals as rewards for food behaviors. They will be hungry for success.
I really appreciate your channel!!! We have a 12 week old blue healer puppy – and it feels like we have a new baby!!! Your tips and tricks are helping so much – thank you ♥

She’s good at training us to be better owners!
true now can we get advice on how to get the puppy to stop attacking my feet and ankles when i walk
Albie The Blue Rhône Cocker Spaniel
As always it’s about training the human and not the dog. Puppy teeth are very sharp and I look like a self Harmer as Albie our puppy is going through teething. We managed to calm him and we “deflect” an awful lot as it helps him to teeth and nip on other things such as his toys. He’s also now understanding the “gentle” command and his bite control at 5 months is much better.
I still managed to fall over him at puppy training last week and break a rib so he’s managed to succeed in doing what the cats have been trying to do for 5 years now.
Damn cats always plotting and shitting everywhere important.
The cats planned, the dog executed
We got a puppy from another family that said he was too aggressive to keep around their kids. I’m guessing they were talking about him being super playful. And biting when he plays. But the first thing I did when we got him was watch videos on training and he’s doing really well. I think they just didn’t have the patience to train him. These videos have been super helpful.
Hows it going now
The 1999 – congratulations! You are 100% correct and you’ve had the patience and consistency that many lack…. People see dog shows + videos and think a trainer can come in and can fix a dog as they would a computer error and as long as you do the same ‘instructions/use same words’ the dog program will run the same way…. Never seen it happen myself! So HUGE respect and we all wish the world had more people like you.❤.
@instagram Live unfortunately my family doesn’t enforce training so he’s not where I’d like him to be but he is a lot better
@The1999 some progress is better than no progress
I’ve rehomed several Animals ( not just dogs) same .gotta put thr time in.
The blue bar on the bottom of the screen is a super cool feature to let us know when the next tip will come! More creators should incorporate this in their videos
Ohhhhh I was wondering what that was for…. thanks.
@엘리 💙✨Ellee p
Provoking the puppy to bite!? All I do is walk by and she attacks my toes!!!🤣

@Kate What does any of this have to do with dog training? Take it somewhere else.
@Ruthless RaDiCaL well preaching IS putting your opinions on people…..that’s litterally what ‘preaching’ means doh…… if you don’t want to force opinions on people you keep them to yourself……not as spam in YouTube comments……or on the street yelling and making a racket
🙁 I’m getting this too and if I am sitting she’s starting to bite my arms. It’s only 7 days since we got her and wow how it changed. I don’t know what I did wrong
We have a 8-9mth old pyr/gsd that still bites at times. It seems typically from overstimulation or like he’s throwing a tantrum. Trying to figure out what we can do to stop this behaviour. Some of these tactics are tricky with a 60lb puppy 😅
I have a 4 month English Mastiff & he is already over 60 pounds and sooooo strong, grabbing his collar makes him nip more. I would love to see a video about training a ‘guardian breed’ puppy because with giant ‘self thinkers’ it’s a very different training scenario.
@Amanda Wood I hear you, we have a 7month old Bullmastiff that’s 75lbs. He is very energetic and loves to bite, chew, nibble, scratch the walls etc🤦🏻♀️ our last BM wasn’t mouthy at all, so this is new to us
We got an Aussie pup (adopted) 16 years ago. He used to try to herd everybody! He finally stopped when he got a few years older. Guess he decided we weren’t trainable! Now as I’m writing this he’s laying on the ottoman, with his graying fur, his diaper on but he’s still beautiful!
@ChrisTheMexVet Old dogs are often incontinent hence a diaper makes great sense.
Shetlands like to nibble too!! Those tiny shark teeth hurt
God bless him – and you ….. xxx
Thanks for the advice, I have a 7 month old Jack russel, shes a bit difficult to train, very smart and learned quickly but is very energetic and chases anything that moves, training is coming along but biting has been a big problem, shes playing but is overly aggressive and very demanding
I had a Puppy biting problem too but one day I told myself: Dude you have to stop biting the Puppy.
Can I just say that your videos are the most helpful videos out there in training. With utmost gratitude for sharing your knowledge in training. I have waited soo so long to get a pup, and now that I have adopted, I am able to train her.
My 12 week old hound mix gets REALLY crazy out of the blue sometimes. My arm has bites and scratches from my hand to my elbow. Hitting just seems wrong, and I think I’ve been going about positive reinforcement the wrong way. I’ll try these with my fam and update them every week to see how she does, these seem really helpful,thank you!

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://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7BBgLulhermOpQyYYLiYbNkYOi3K8Uc5
@Tiffany you should have dealt with it sooner. I’ve got a German Shepard to he’s 10 weeks old and I’ve been doing hands on approach. Mother dogs pick up their puppies by the extra skin around their neck when they’re teething and hurting her by feeding on them. I’m not saying to hurt the dog…. Your dog will cry a little but it works. You should watch German Shepard man’s video on puppy biting or any advice. Channel is German Shepard man.
Women have a tough time doing the hands on discipline. Your approach takes way to long.
please help with some advice if u see this….thanks
All of these videos are food oriented dogs. My puppy is not food motivated- I know that’s weird. How can I get him respond to me without treats?
Great video. This is hugely helpful. A few questions:
1) Puppy is in the crate when you come home. Let’s say they get really riled up. What do you do to help them become calmer?
2) When your puppy is on the couch and nipping & can’t seem to settle down, what do you do to pull that back and get to a starting point? Drill them being calm and rewarding that makes complete sense, but how do you correct when they’re puppying?
Use your voice VERY firmly to make them settle down. Use a clear command and be consistent: NO! or STOP! or just OY! Whatever comes naturally to you so that you can spit it out immediately without having to stop and think. It’s worth watching older dogs teaching/disciplining puppies in order to see how well they actually respond to a good telling off.

That puppy didn’t bite you once. He’s clearly looking for treats from the very start and seems so calm at every stage of the video. I think more people want to see you calm a puppy down after the lunging, play growls, and biting starts, and when the blood is flowing 😭. This puppy is pretty well mannered.
@0ThrowawayAccount0 while i agree that average people shouldn’t be allowed to own pitbulls, I have got an Aussie that has been a vicious biting monster since day one. I’m not talking playful puppy biting; I’m talking full-on-demon-spawn- trying to actually injure me for no apparent reason.
@NotLisztening just look at facts and statistics.
@Riccy Maguina i have a few things I do to settle her when I get that. One is outside on a line for 20 min until she can settle herself.. It’s fenced. Nothing can hurt her. One is her crate which is the old molded plastic so she has limited stimulus. I do it as if I’m helping her. Not a punishment. Seems to be working. She seems to stop quickly when I say no now.
@Boxes Pastimes check out Zak George YT Channel. He has several series showing how to train new puppies. Starting day one.
I think this is a very small puppy and that’s the best time to curb unwanted behavior. They’re very pliable at 8 weeks. I have a 4-month-old puppy and have not conquered the biting problem, but I’ve been unintentionally doing things that encourage her to do this without realizing it. I’ve been saying “ouch!” because I’ve read that this is effective — but it isn’t, it activates her to play! My breeder encouraged me to use the compressed air cans and be very consistent about it, even take it on walks. I need to extinguish both biting and jumping while she weighs 25 pounds, because someday she’ll be 80 pounds or more with adult teeth.
