My puppy is biting - what to do?
Why DO puppies bite?
Well, the nature of the matter is...
That it’s important that you realize that biting is a part of your puppy’s language. It’s their nature. All puppies bite. There are many reasons for this, e.g. they teeth and like human babies, they bite to stop the itching. Also, they bite when they play. And they bite to learn. And they bite to get your attention (and it works!) And they bite because they are excited.
So what happens when humans interfere?

How to stop puppy biting - Q&A
As mentioned before, puppies are not mean. 99 out of 100 times a puppy bites it’s because she is excited or simply just “talking”. But of course, a puppy can bite for other reasons. They can be sick and in pain and wanting to defend themselves. Or they can be scared, not knowing who to trust and feeling all alone in the world. A bite in this situation is also a defense.
