How do I teach a pup not to bite people?

What's With the Biting?

Biting, mouthing and nipping are natural behaviors to a puppy. She uses such behaviors to establish her place in the litter and to explore her world. To stop your young canine from nipping people, use a high-pitched, "Ouch!" and gently shake the ruff of her neck or use light pressure on the muzzle and firmly say, "No!"
