Biting barking puppy need HELP!!!
Lucie is 3 months old and is biting all the time and it hurts. We've tried yelping, yelling ouch, we are always trying to redirect her to toys or chewies. But she doesn't seem to get it and she's biting on the kids so much she's putting holes in clothing. Please any advice.....

The way we stopped our girl is a loud "ouch" followed by a 30 second time out...... The key was consistency. My personal opinion is don't restrict toys.... They need something to chew and play with. Also, we began by letting her bite, and only saying ouch when she bit to hard... To teach her bite pressure.

We yell ouch and she still continues biting. We've tried putting her in her crate she comes out wanting to bite even more

know that one day she'll outgrow it. Tiger still bites but if it isn't too hard I tolerate it. if he starts getting too carried away I'll use a spritzer bottle to good effect. if you use it don't aim the water at the face or eyes, just enough squirts (3-4 sometimes, others just once) to the chest or back to stop her or get her to scamper away. it doesn't hurt him and I'm sure it's more of the surprise and unpleasant wet sensation that stops the biting.

Chevelle is 6 months old now and for a few weeks I thought the biting was over and now it's back... sigh. Usually it's when she is feeling emotional tho.. (like when I come back to the car after working for a few hours)

It's normal but I can't remember how I dealt with it myself, so:

What we do is we yelp and continue to keep yelping till he licks our hands then we take him outside for running or flirt pole or some tug time to tire him out he only gets mouthy when in play mode. Maybe we are lucky and got a not so mouthy dog but that seems to work with us. Also I noticed my min pin is helping a lot with teaching bite pressure.

Yeah, I would say exercise her more. And if you find her biting after exercise, then she is probably tired. If you crate her then she will most likely nap. My puppy put holes in my clothes for a while. I mostly used redirecting to toys and chews, time-out, and lots of exercise. It also really helped that I had taught her "leave it" and "drop it". If she obeyed the command, she got a treat every time. She is doing much better, but she is only 5 months old, so she might relapse. :-)

My boy is just over 2 months old and bites from time to time. We distract him by sticking one of his toys in his mouth. If he's **** bent on biting we say no and OUCH! My older boy did the same thing. I've heard penny's in a can, and rattling when he bites works, but I've never tried it.
