To discourage your puppy from biting, there are several things you can do:
1. Refrain from any dominance type games like tug of war, chase, or wrestling.
2. Withhold your attention if your puppy tries to nip. If she continues, let out an "Ow! Ow!" and then go about your business.
3. If your pooch is especially persistent with her teeth, leave her on a leash. When she attempts to bite, redirect her attention with the lead.
