I do. He bites a ball or a tug and he remembers how much fun it is.

I don't think you should stop your puppy from biting. They're at the stage of "teething" just like in babies. All you have to do is to provide the appropriate stuff for them to chew on. You don't actually stop it, you just make them do it on the right stuff.

Did you bother to read the first post? It's on teaching bite inhibition, not stopping all biting...

Default How to STOP Puppy Biting

I would suggest providing him with other toys that he can chew on also one of those ropes that he can play tug with you. If he starts to bite you while u and playing with him then get up and walk away he will quickly learn that if he is aggressive during playtime then playtime is over.

I was told this trick by someone special on Chaz. Take a washcloth and run it under warm (not hot) water and wring out slightly. Wipe the puppy's face with the washcloth. It stimulate the mother licking it's face. I tried this and it worked. The puppy will get a calmness and stop biting.

Smile puppy biting

One of simplest ways to stop your puppy biting is to bellow "ow" in a deep gruff voice.(It took me a bit of time to get use to this I wasn't very good at bellowing in a deep gruff voice) This will surprise him and in most cases he will release his grip.

As soon as he lets go offer him a toy, he will learn that he is allowed to bite his toys.

Let him chew the toy for a few minutes, then take it from him using the command "give"

Another tool that you can use is a tin filled with pebbles, the aim of this is to make a loud sudden noise, the result will be he will stop what he's doing ,and then you can praise him for stopping what he was doing.

You must remember not to get angry with your puppy. You may feel concerned that your puppies biting is a sign of a poor temperament. Your puppies behaviour is instinctive and it will be your job to teach your puppy that biting is not acceptable if he wants to be part of your pack.

Please don't do things to frighten your puppy. A yelp is fine and works with some puppies, but don't be gruff. Some puppies perceive that as play so you wind up reinforcing the behavior. I agree with using suitable chew toys as replacement behavior in addition to the following.

This is the best advice you can get on puppy biting. It teaches bite inhibition...so the dog learns to regulate his bite...exceedingly important: I recommend you read both of these.

Teaching trading for valued objects is also important....trade him for something better than he has when you want him to give you something.

Here are some more artcles that should be helpful.
