Mostly this is a habit that will be outgrown. Meanwhile, its a management issue... prevention as much as possible. Don't get carried away with trying to scold or punish, as that will have a long term negative effect on the puppy.

You can also teach the puppy to "drop it" in exchange for a treat.

Think of this as a baby needing to put things in her mouth. That's why puppies do this... same reason.

Remember, a puppy is a baby dog, not a "mini-dog". Puppies have stages of development just like baby humans!
