Bite Work

How young is too young for a puppy to participate in bite work?

Thanks MiraC

You can do rag play early on but bite/tug should end when teething begins...resume again around 7 months.
If you are going to do protection bitework that can wait til pup is over a year...if s/he has it in him/her, it will be there regardless.

I'd be careful with tugging...you don't want any hairline fractures of the teeth coming in or messing up the alignment.
