When Do Puppies Stop Biting?

The duration of puppy biting depends largely on a puppy's training. Owners must be patient and consistent in teaching puppies not to bite. Puppies can learn from several techniques to help them learn good behavior.

If a puppy bites a person, the person should exclaim loudly and move away. This action teaches the puppy that biting ends playtime. Owners should also provide bones and chew toys to give puppies an outlet for chewing. Moreover, puppies should receive ample time for exercise to expend the excessive energy that often causes biting. A taste deterrent on clothing and exposed body parts also helps to prevent puppies from biting unnecessarily.
