Default Play-biting

hey everyone!

i've had my new puppy for a week now, and she is adorable. at around 7-9 at night she gets super hyper and it lasts for about 30 minutes or so. she gets in play-biting fits and when i so NO she gets more riled up and it hurts. what can i do to stop the playbiting?

thanks

This question comes up a LOT!!
Is your puppy about 10-12 weeks old? If so you are probably in the middle of the play biting stage.

There have been a lot of posts and a lot of good advice posted so maybe you can find something here:

See, the thing is, she will kind of bite me. like she gets really playful and will come to me and nip at me. whenever i correct her she gets more and more bitey. Is this aggression or just playfulness/hyperness? I'm not really sure what to do.

Here's something that works for me, whenever I come across puppies or dogs that like to play bite I just fold my arms and be boaring, I don't encourage it and yelping just like a dog would when playing with it's other dog friends would is sometimes useful. If you don't give a reaction and just ignore the behaviour then it will get board with that game and you praise for the good play behaviour. there is tones of info on this stuff on the web and in books, good luck

my border collie pup did exactly the same thing as a lil pup, every night at around 8-9 oclock, running around, mouthing like crazy, uncontrollable. i think its a puppy thing.We called it her funny five minutes!

Skunkstripe has provided lots of good links with discussion of this problem that we all seem to have to find our own methods to overcome. Good luck with your pup ... it's a tough battle ... but with patience & consistent training, you'll beat it!

Can't add anything new to the suggestions here, but take heart, most of us have been through this. It really helps to start in a puppy class and work the dog up through Obedience III. It is fun, and will give you a super foundation to work from.

We just withdraw from Abby when she tries this. She is way better.

I'm going through the same thing and thankfully Amber is starting to calm down. Sometimes I have put Amber in her crate to calm down, not as punishment but just a 5 minute time out which has worked sometimes.

Everyone here gave me some great tips on helping me with Amber. Without this site, I know I would have gone crazy.

Good luck!
