Puppy Biting: Why They Do It and How to Curb It

Have you ever held a dog toy in front of a puppy and let him “mouth” it? As you’ve probably noticed, puppies will put their mouth on most anything, and it’s completely normal since they use their teeth to explore the world around them and play with one another.

In fact, if you’ve watched puppies in a litter with their littermates, you’ll see that they climb all over one another and nip each other in an ongoing bout of exploration.
