Hello

We have a 14 week Olde English Bulldogge. He continues to try to bite or nip when playing and sometimes he gets his teeth in good and usually breaks the skin. Does anybody have any info or tips on this. How long does this last? Is there anything we should do to help him stop this. We try to raise our voices and tell him no in a strong voice so he knows. But it doesn't always stop.

Please HELP!

There's a sticky above this post (or in the Training section) called "The Bite Stops Here". Read that.

Puppies are nippy and it does last a while, but you can really get results if you follow the sticky. Not instant results, though, it will take a while to sink in.

If he's the dog in your avatar, he is the cutest little thing I've ever seen!

Thanks so much. I think we are going to give that a shot. I was mainly wondering how long this is going to last. hahahaha. He's very good for the most part. Such a joy in our lives. And yes; that is him in my avatar. I need to figure out how to put a variety of pictures of him; like you have as your signature. He's definitely a lot bigger now.

For us, with our first puppy, it took 4 weeks to get him to stop. We didn't follow "The Bite Stops Here" to the letter, we kind of adapted it. Basically, if the puppy nipped/bit, we'd say OUCH loudly. Then, if he did it again, we'd get up and leave the room. Yes, it was a hassle, and my fiance hated it, because it cut into his TV time. But, we were consistent, and did the same thing EVERY time, and it did work. Our second dog took about 2 weeks, and our current foster puppy, about 2-3 weeks.

He is a cutie!

Thank you Doxiemommy. I think we just need to use a method and stick with it. He's been great otherwise. Learned the potty routine; very quickly and he's great in his crate already. We've had him for a little over a month now.

I have the same problem with a 3 month old german sheppard/ chow mix. It keeps biting my older dog and even when my older dog snaps back, the puppy still goes at it! Im getting worried because now the older dog wont get off the couch if the puppy is out! Help!
