Awesome info on what to do if your #puppy is chewing #training

YES YES YES YES YES

I get so many Asks about puppy nipping – here’s a good quick guide! Note: we had the most luck with the method of replacing your hand with a chew item as opposed to just yelping.

Also please remember this is something you have to do repetitively over time (and the length of that time depends on the dog; sometimes days, sometimes weeks, sometimes months, sometimes.. yep, some might take over a year until nipping/biting/chewing is gone completely), but generally the more consistent you are the quicker it will taper off.

Show your puppy what you want them to do instead of punishing what you don’t want them to do! They’re pretty smart little sponges :3
