Help! My puppy is Biting!
While it won't heal those punctures on your hands and ankles any faster, it may be comforting to know that if your puppy is biting you're not alone. In fact, mouthing and chewing are normal (but not desirable) behaviors and essentially all puppies will bite. The good news is that as your puppy gets older much of the nipping and mouthing will disappear, particularly if you don't encourage it through aggressive play. Fortunately, most biting done by puppies is playful and there are several ways you can discourage your puppy from choosing you as a target.
