bite inhibition

  1. Dog biting and tugging clothes (and arms)

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, Me and my sister just re-homed this 8 month old husky mix. He's been really great up until a few days ago where he would start mouthing very hard and tugging on clothes really hard. We tried turning around to ignore him to send a message that it is not okay behavior but he starts tugging...
  2. Puppy bites HARD and is relentless

    Puppy Help
    I know he's not attacking me, but it sure does feel like it. I've been working on Theo's (3 month old cattle dog mix) biting and it just doesn't seem to be getting better. It seems to be getting worse actually (he's drawn blood multiple times). These are the typical situations when he bites...
  3. Best treats for training a puppy?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, I recently got a new puppy and am using treats as positive reinforcement for his good behaviors (being calm, chewing toys instead of fingers/toes, going potty outside).

  5. 18 week old pup with no bite inhibition

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So, I posted a little over a month ago about my psychotic devil dog and his biting problem. Well, I think I made a mistake by not letting him bite at all because now he has no bite inhibition whatsoever :( He doesn't bite often, but when he does, he does it with full force. Now that he is 30...
  6. When should bite inhibition really settle in?

    Puppy Help
    Hey guys, Vent/question! I have my 7 month old puppy. I've been reading stuff on here about teaching puppies not to mouth/bite and putting all the suggestions into practice, with varying levels of success. It just seems like he hasn't really picked up on the bite inhibition. I don't know if I...
  7. Adult Bite Inhibition and Traffic Phobia

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey there! I just happily adopted a beautiful Basenji, about 4 yo, from rural NH, about 4 days ago. I live in Maine near a fairly busy street that I've noticed my dog is starting to react to. Unfortunately, the traffic is constant throughout the day and dies down at night so he is constantly...
