It took 2 weeks of consistent physical correction to get him to stop nailing people for no reason other than he wanted to bite. If he gets stimulated to this day he will redirect himself into biting anything that won't get him into big trouble.


People think dogs just bite out of fear or aggression or prey but some dogs just bite because they just love to bite and that's what they feel the need to do. As a puppy you'd pick him up and put him on the bed and he'd bite the bed pick him up put him on the couch and he'd nail the couch. As close to full grip as he could get and clamp on and hold till you pried him off.

Baillif, my dutchie is just like that too. Biting is fun and when he gets excited he loves for something to be in his mouth. I cringe to think of those trainers that say don't let them tug, it induces aggression, or some such nonsense. Needs to be directed and at times the urge needs to be capped until appropriate but it is what they love to do sometimes.

Reminds of the raptors on jurassic park that were trained with the clicker. He looks alot like my pup at that age even though it was in a playful way. He did that to my kids snow suit and shredded it. It temind me of those protective suits they wear. Needless to say he never did that again. Cant iimagine if it was encouraged.
