Puppy biting is something to get control of right away, especially with a Border Collie type personality. I am learning this the hard way. Puppy biting is also something I will not tolerate with those needle sharp baby teeth.
When Kash would bite, I would immediately grab his snout firmly, don’t squeeze hard, and control his neck/body until he quit squirming and fighting, all the while saying “NO BITE!” in a low voice, (while trying to stay calm).
This had to be reaffirmed several times before he realized this was unacceptable. It has improved a lot, but every now and then he gets excited to play and bites (playing) and I now just have to say NO BITE, and don’t have to grab his snout and subdue him.
My dog training program that I found online has been great in setting the tone for what to expect from a well trained dog. This training guide has been invaluable and I can’t recommend it any more highly. And I’m the guy that thought I could train any dog, until I met Kash. Get this book if you want a well trained dog, and it is very easy to understand and implement. Your dog will love you for it.
