I got WD at 10 weeks and he spend all that tmie with is mom and litter mates but oh boy did he bite. I used all the tips given here already and he is the best dog now.
It is almost crazy but I already am looking at puppies. 6 months ago I vowed to never get sucked into a pup again because of the biting.......

Spirit's teeth never bothered me as much as his claws. I have nicknamed him Spirit Von Pauzenclawz.

Your puppy is normal You're going to get plenty beat up in the next several months. It's all part of raising a GSD puppy. Little did I know

Teach your puppy the GENTLE command. I start with taking treats gently. After I have taught the pup that he can have the treat when he takes it gently, Good Gentle. Then I remind the puppy, GENTLE when I have a treat. Pretty soon I can substitute GENTLE for things I want her to be Gentle with .

I tell the girls "Gentle with my fingers."

It works with my girls, though I don't have scars from puppy biting either.

You might want to use the word IPE instead of OW or NO.

All of these replies are great! Read as much as you can on the Puppy Section of the forum..read some each day! Even if it doesnt apply to you yet..it will soon. Then, you can decide what information will work for you in conjunction with your trainer. And everyone here loves pictures!!
