Socialization Training Your Pet Not to Bite Part II

Socialization Training Your Pet Not to Bite Part II

It is important for puppies to be exposed to a wide variety of stimuli during their socialization process. This process ought to expose the puppy to other types of animals, older canines, younger canines, and humans both big and small, male and female.

While socialization is a key to providing the puppy with life lessons and preventing biting, it isn’t the only method. Giving the puppy acceptable toys to play with and bite is another good way to manage inappropriate biting. Offering a wide range of chew toys, ropes and other things the puppy can chew is essential to prevent boredom, maintain teeth polishing, and keeping him from chewing things he shouldn’t.

As with any type of training, it is important to remain consistent when instructing the puppy not to bite. Every member of the family as well as those close to the family, should all be informed that the puppy is to be discouraged from biting. If one person allows the puppy to chew while the rest do not, it will cause confusion for the animal and may make the training more difficult than it has to be.
