Why do Puppies Bite their Owner?
It is but natural for small pups to chew and bite any and everything that comes within its confines. This is because it is natural for your canine friend to nip and bite gently. He/she does so on any and everything that the pet can lay its eyes upon.
So, if your hand or feet tend to come in close contact to your pup’s mouth, you can easily hope to feel its impact. Trust me! The bite is not intended to hurt you. The pup is basically following its natural instinct to play with you – the bite is an important way to showcase the animal’s playful attitude.
Nonetheless at time, the after-effects of this gentle playful bite can be disastrous. The intense pain may magnify into bleeding. As I (LeanAndFit Review Staff) have mentioned above, in the United States alone, over eight hundred thousand individuals need to get medical assistance after being bitten by a dog.
Nonetheless, this gentle and playful attitude (not so much for human beings) may not be the only reason behind this bite. There are several more reasons why a dog or a pup may bite you. Usually, they stop biting when they are 21 weeks and older:
The Main Reasons why a Puppy May Bite You?
There could be a myriad of reasons why your beloved pet is biting you. Let me throw light on some of the most prominent ones:
A Fatigued Puppy is a Nippy Puppy:
By far the biggest reason why a puppy is snappy is because of fatigue. A pup needs at least 15 hours of sleep per day. So, if the pet’s sleep cycle is such that it does not permit a 16 hour sleep then, the pup shall automatically become irate.
An irate pup is cranky and he shall tend to bite you for no fault of yours. Just allow your puppy to rest in order to avoid getting bitten by him. Find a place within your home that is peaceful, less noisy and ideal for permitting the pup to sleep peacefully.
Mouthing Factor should Never be Forgotten:
When a puppy is nipping your fingers or feet, it is an indicator that it is mouthing. This is when you should understand that getting bitten playfully is a part and parcel of the pup’s natural desire. The bite is not intended to hurt you.
You should try and introduce your pup with others of its kind. This shall enable your pet to nibble other four legged animals and not you. If you do not have access to more pups then, you can simply give your pup a bone to chew onto.
When you give the dog a bone to chew onto, he shall stop biting you.
Being Super-Excited is Normal:
A pup is a young animal. So, it is natural to be really excited. When the pup is excited, chances are that it shall start to nip your toes and fingers. This is an animal’s way of showcasing his interest in you as a keen & active player.
When this starts to happen and you start to get nipped, you should get to work in calming your pet down. You should try and pet the animal softly.
You may even hold him tightly to slow down the excitement level while talking softly and reassuringly to the pet so as not to alarm him. Soon, the animal shall simmer down and you can continue to play with your pup without being nipped in the act.
The Nature’s Call is being Ignored:
When your puppy starts to bite your feet or tug your sleeves, it is quite possible that it needs to ‘go’. Natures Call is simply an unavoidable feat even for a small pup.
So, he would try and attract your attention by nipping you. If the nips and bites have started to occur suddenly without any provocation, you should take your pup to its favorite ‘poop’ spot.
Hopefully, after attending to nature’s call, your pup should be in a relaxed state of mind.
Simply in a Bad Mood:
Pups like human kids, have occasional mood swings. So, if you find your pup to be biting and nipping continuously, it could be a sign of anger and frustration.
This is when you need to understand that putting your pet at ease is important. Play with the pup, give him a bone to chew or simply leave him alone. Doing so shall help calm the puppy down considerably.
Hurt or Unwell:
When a pup is hurt or unwell, it shall instinctively start to bite you. Such an action is usually owing to the discomfort that your pet is currently facing. As it is too young to cope with the unpleasant situation, it may nip or bite you.
Simply pick up the pup and inspect him carefully. If you see any injury mark then, tend to it immediately. If there is no visible injury yet the puppy feels restless then, you should take him to a vet.
Your Body Language is Bite Worthy:
In order to stop your puppy from biting you, maintain a positive body language. For a starter, when you begin to play with your beloved pet, simply maintain a stance that allows you to be in a commanding position.
Abstain from lying down as that gives a wrong message to your beloved pet. The pup would be all over you and you would be unable to defend yourself. Also, do not make any squeaky noise that instigates your pet.
Cuddling is Not Always an Option:
We all love to cuddle cute little pups. Nonetheless, this is not always an option. You need to consider the point of view of the puppy as well.
If the pet does not like being cuddled, you may get bitten for performing this act. So, stop stroking or cuddling your pup just because you like doing so.
What is Mouthing in Puppies?
Mouthing can be defined as a natural act followed by a puppy which involved nibbling and biting. So, if your pup has started to nibble you or bite your fingers, it is in its mouthing phase. There is nothing wrong with this habit.
Most pups perform mouthing so as to measure their bite power. When dogs play with each other, they do bite each other. This is in a playful manner.
Nonetheless, in their younger days, dogs have already tested their bite power (via the means of mouthing). So, they do bite each other but not to the extent of hurting each other.
Why does Mouthing Bite Hurt Some Owners?
It’s not like some pups like to hurt while others do not. The reason for these bites needs to be investigated. If it is angry or frustrated then, the bite to your hands delivered by the pup is not a resultant of mouthing.
In case the puppy is biting from mouthing and it hurts then, it could its breed. If a Great Dane or German Shepherd puppy bites you, you are damn sure to feel the pain. On the other hand, if a Chihuahua puppy bites your feet, the bite force shall be seldom termed ‘painful’.
Should You Allow Mouthing or Put a Stop to it?
Mouthing is a natural way for a puppy to display its natural instincts. It shares its love and affection with you via its playful bites. The pup also considers you as its playmate by nipping your hands or feet.
While this natural behavior is all about animal instinct, at times, it may get rather nagging and painful for you. This is when you need to decide whether you would like to put a stop to it or not. It is not recommended that you stop mouthing completely.
You should instead, slow it down by training your pet to bite less. With the correct training, your puppy shall not only stop nipping your hands but also avoid biting your friends. If you stop your pup’s mouthing completely then, it is going against its natural instincts.
How to Handle Frustrated Mouthing Bites?
Whenever a puppy gets tense, his entire body seems stiff and rigid. The muzzle is rock solid and there is hardly any expression that can be termed pleasant. This is when he shall start to nip at you.
The irritation could be caused by the slightest of reasons – such as not being allowed to play in the lawn, or a toy taken away or simply placed on a small leash. Whatever the reason may be, an irate puppy needs to be taught gently to behave.
In order to stop the puppy from biting when frustrated, you need to hold him down. You might get nipped occasionally during this process. Nonetheless, you should not howl in pain. Simply hold the puppy gently to stop all his movements.
In a short while, the pup shall calm down. Once the nipping stops, you should release the animal. Do this each time the pup starts to bite you. Over a period of time, the puppy shall understand that it is not supposed to bite you (as it would get held tightly).
How to Stop a Puppy from Biting Your Hands and Feet?
When the puppy starts to inflict injuries to your skin then, you need to start teaching him not to do so. The bites (although playful) can easily draw blood besides being painful. So, the pet needs to be taught not to indulge in such malpractices (pun intended).
Here are a few tips to stop your pup from nipping your hands and feet:
The Voice Commands:
When your puppy starts to bite you (way too often) then, you need to try and stop his action gently. This can be done via the aid of gently stopping your pet from doing so. You can do so via the aid of using soft commands.
You can even ‘shout out aloud’ once bitten. Your high pitched scream is sure to alarm your pup. He shall immediately stop playing with you and remain still for a while. The play usually resumes after a few minutes.
Resume with your high pitched cry if he bites you again. Do this a couple of times till the pup learns to be gentle with you. If not, you need to sternly warn the animal. You might say, ‘bad boy….don’t do that again.’
The 30 Second Ignorance Method:
If your stifled screams of agony are not making an impact on the puppy’s biting then, you may use the ignorance method. So, whenever the puppy nips your hands or feet playfully, fake ignorance.
Pretend as though the pup is not around and walk away from the scene. Resume playing with the pup after a sudden gap of 30 seconds. Each time the pup bites you, initiate this process.
Soon the puppy shall realize that if it bites you hard, you shall quit playing with him.
The Gentle Hold:
Another method that seems to work almost each and every time around is to hold the puppy down. You need to do so gently yet firmly. Each time he bites you hard, you should grab hold of the puppy and do not allow him to move.
This action shall compel the pet to stop biting you. It is also quite possible that your puppy shall stop biting you altogether. Release the pup after it has completely calmed down.
Nonetheless, do encourage your pet to indulge in non-painful playful bites (as it is a natural process of mouthing).
The Petting and Caressing Issues:
It is natural to pet, fondle and caress a cute puppy. Nonetheless, the puppy may not like you to do so. This is why he may nip your finger in the act. It may seem awkward to some pet owners as to why your pet bites when you pet him.
Nonetheless, you should understand that pups usually do not like being touched. So, the next time around you feel like cuddling with your beloved pet, simply offer him a treat.
When the pet associates the treat with your petting, it shall gladly oblige to your advances. In most cases, the puppy shall stop nibbling you.
Use the Leash Effectively:
Sometimes, the puppy starts to bite you only when it is super excited and in a playful mood. In such a scenario, you should put a leash onto your pup and restrain him to a quite area. Keep the puppy tied to the area for a short while.
Release him only when the puppy has quietened and become less aggressive. Repeat this ‘leash based exercise’ several times over till the puppy stops biting.
Change the Way You Play:
Rather than grappling with your puppy, you need to interact in a non-invasive manner. For example, play with a ball or hold a towel and permit the dog to bite or tug the cloth.
Doing so shall ensure that your beloved puppy is not biting you any longer. If you lie down on the ground, you puppy shall be all over you. The bites that you receive may be fiercer than you ever expected.
So, always maintain an upright stance that permits you to take control of any unwanted puppy biting situation.
Use Toys that Encourage Biting:
There are certain toys out there that encourage dogs to bite. So, whenever your beloved pet starts to nip at your toes or fingers, simply hand him over such toys.
Doing so shall distract your puppy and prompt him to leave your skin and bite the toy instead. This is an ideal way to ensure that you and your puppy get along well without you having to get bitten in the act.
Use Reward Treatment:
Whenever your puppy starts to bite or nip you, you need to be stern. Stop the pet from grabbing your skin. You may give him a toy to bite instead or a bone. Treat him with a cookie for letting go of your arm and biting the toy bone instead.
You need to repeat these actions time and over again until the puppy understands that the treat is meant for ‘NOT’ biting your hands and feet. Soon enough, the pup would stop biting you. Even if he does, the bite force shall be insignificant.
Introduce Your Pup to His Own Breed:
Well, pups like to play with other pups. So, if you can introduce your beloved pet to others then, nothing like it. Doing so shall enable your beloved pet to divert his/her attention to others of its own kind.
You may also introduce your pup to adult dogs. Doing so shall ensure that your pet is ‘put in his place’ if he bites too hard, by the elders of his clan.
Introduce Dog Repellents:
There are certain gadgets that repel dogs. Now, I am not at all referring to dog shock collars as these are cruel. What I am referring to are certain fragrances that tend to repel your beloved puppy.
So, you need to simply get hold of such sprays available at the local pet store. Apply them to your clothes while playing with your pup. Whenever the pup feels like taking a nip at you, the fragrance emitted by these sprays shall act as a natural deterrent.
Precautions You need to Take while Training Puppy Not to Bite
I fully agree with the meager fact that not everyone can afford the services of a certified dog trainer. For this very reason, you need to incorporate changes into your routine for training puppy not to bite you and your friends.
So, to avoid getting bitten by your beloved dog or puppy, here are a few things you need to keep in mind:
Your Body Language & Sign Language:
At times, your body language is not conducive to optimal pup behavior. When you wave your fingers or hand in front of the puppy then, it is possible that the pet would take it as a playful sign.
This is when you get nipped in the fingers or hand. Sometimes, pet owners gently caress the face of the pet in a ‘show of reprimand’. This act is often mistaken by the pet as playful. Once again, you get nipped.
Punishments are to be Avoided:
It is highly likely that pet owners tend to get irate at their pet biting their arms or feet. Punishments such as scolding the pet or even hitting the pup is a common occurrence (in such a scenario).
This is when the pup gets even more irate and tends to bite you harder. Avoid indulging in such behavior and gently stop the pet from biting you.
So, if you are physically punishing your puppy for biting you in any which way then, you need to stop doing so right away. Your puppy is not going to like it. The bites shall only get worse.
Use Positive Body Language Only:
If you would like to ensure that your puppy does not bite you while mouthing, you should avoid allowing the pet to have easy access toy with your fingers and feet.
Simply put, stop moving your hands and feet aggressively or defensively when in the vicinity of your pup. Maintain a normal stance and be casual while playing with him. This shall reduce the chances of getting bitten by your beloved pet.
Avoid Discouraging Mouthing Aggressively:
A pup shall begin mouthing when he is four weeks old. This shall lead to nipping and biting. This act may continue all the way till the pet is 10 weeks old. Thereafter, it should (ideally) stop automatically.
I would suggest you allow the pet to nip you gently. Do not discourage it to bite you playfully. If the pet gets too aggressive and its bite-force increases, you can gently teach him not to behave in such a rough manner.
What are the Top 5 Small Dog Breeds that Bite the Most?
If you thought that German Shepherds, Rottweilers and Bull Dogs were responsible for horrifying bites then, you got it all wrong. While these are large dogs and known for their aggressive nature, their smaller counterparts are equally (if not more) bite friendly.
Smaller dog breeds (often considered harmless) have the potential to seriously injure a human being. This is especially true when they travel in packs.
Here is a brief look at the top 5 small dog breeds that are most likely to bite you:
This breed may seem cute and harmless but in reality, a cocker spaniel has a ‘sudden change of character’ when it comes to biting you. They have a rage that is completely unpredictable and can leave you howling in pain.
The 6 Pound Dog:
Also known as Hollywood’s favorite, the Chihuahua is a force to reckon with. This small and harmless dog that weighs less than a regular laptop is quite a nasty biter.
The Russell’s Terrier:
Once kept as a pet to annihilate all the rats in the territory, the Russell’s terrier has quite a nasty mood. This terrier tends to bite with a vicious force and is known to make you howl way too often (when irate).
This is a tiny dog breed that was born and bred in Germany. The main purpose of this dog was to hunt for honey badgers and kill them. So, you can imagine that these small dogs (popularly known as Dachshund) pack quite a punch in their bite.
Well, remember the cartoon character – beagle boys. Well, the beagle dog got quite popular after the Disney show went live. Nonetheless, this breed is a heck of a bite master.
This breed has a mind of its own. It can get really angry if it is shakes from its safe environment. Beagle also tends to snap and bite its owner if it is irate (and the mood swings of this dog are phenomenal indeed).
What to Look in a Dog before Bringing One Home?
You may be really fond of dogs and are aching to get one home. What you forget is that not everyone is trained in dog psychology. Moreover, the thought of getting home a pup versus looking after a puppy in reality, are two different things.
Well, if you are confident that you can take care of a puppy then, do get one home.
Nonetheless, you need to keep the following things in mind before doing so:
>>> Seek the advice of a dog trainer or a kennel owner. A dog breeder too has ample knowledge on which breed is best suited for home ownership. So, seeking expert advice should never be side-lined.
>>> In case you would like to get home a Rottweiler then, it is best to neuter the dog. Spray the pup if the need arises. Only then should you get one home.
>>> You need to be mentally prepared to look after a puppy. It is a new addition to your family. Only when you are mentally, physically and financially certain of your decision should you get a pup home (as a pet).
>>> While getting home a pet, have an action plan ready. This action plan involves looking after the pet and taking care of its needs. Proper nutrition and recreation facilities too need to be looked into.
>>> If the need arises then, you should get your puppy trained by a certified dog trainer.
How to Avoid Getting Bitten by a Dog?
Dog bites are increasing with figures that can set the ‘alarm bells’ ringing. The latest figures indicate that young children get affected the most. Kids aged in between 5 to 10 years of age record 51% of the bite injuries delivered by dogs.
It has also been noticed that dogs tend to be ‘gender biased’ while biting kids. Male kids tend to get nipped way more than females. Apparently, this is owing to the naughtier behavior depicted by boys when compared to a more calm & composed behavior displayed by girls.
Not all dogs can be trained to behave amicable with humans. This is especially true with special regards to strays. With over 200 million stray dogs (as per WHO), the chances of getting bitten by one are rather high indeed.
As I have mentioned above, adults are less likely to get bitten. Children on the other hand, need to be very careful.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind to avoid getting bitten by a stray or even a pet dog:
@ If you see a stray dog walking the path, do not try and go near it. You should allow it to roam freely.
@ In case a stray dog or a pet starts to come closer to you, do not run away. Doing so shall instigate the animal to come after you. This may even lead to an unfortunate bite.
@ If a dog starts to come close to you, simply stay put. Avoid screaming or thrashing around. Instead of scaring the animal, you may make it angry.
@ In case a large dog bumps into a small child, the kid should lie still. The dog shall lose interest in you and walk away.
@ In case you come across a dog that is behaving strangely (such as snarling, drooling, growling viciously) then, leave the place immediately. Do inform animal authorities of the same.
@ Never allow a child to go out alone if the area is inhabited by stray dogs.
@ In case a dog is resting (regardless of whether it is stray or tame), you should avoid nudging, petting, throwing a stone etc. at it.
@ If a bitch is taking care of her pups then, do not disturb her. Avoid touching her pups as this may prompt the bitch to bite you.
@ It is a good idea to allow a stray dog to sniff you. If you make a move before the dog has a chance to smell you, it is quite likely that you shall get bitten.
@ Dog trainers state that it is best to avoid looking into the eyes of a dog. This is a sign of aggression and the dog may bite you for doing so. Always keep your eyes lower than that of the dog (never meet its gaze).

What to do if Your Dog Bites You and Breaks the Skin?
How to stop puppy from biting is a vital topic of discussion if you are a pet owner. Nonetheless, if your puppy has already bitten you, the topic of discussion changes to the most appropriate treatment method.
Dog’s attack is often unpredictable in nature. It could happen when you are playfully indulging with your pet dog or puppy. It can also happen when you stroll down the local park and a stray dog nips your leg.
The problem occurs when the cut is evident and draws blood. This in turn implies that the dog’s canines have actually punctured your skin. It may lead to bacterial infection and even rabies. So, getting treated for this wound is inevitably vital.
Here are a few tips to treat a dog bite to avoid medical complications:
Step # 1:
To start with, you need to clean the area where the dog has bitten you. I am assuming the skin has been nipped and drawn blood. Mild soapy solution should be an ideal washing medium.
Step # 2:
You need to wash the bitten area with warm water. Place it under a tap (running water) for a period of 6 to 7 minutes. This should stop the bleeding and wash off any traces of infection.
Step # 3:
If bleeding persists then, place gauze over the wound. This should slow down or completely stop the bleeding. Thereafter, apply an antibiotic ointment over the wounded area.
Step # 4:
You need to then gently cover the wound with a bandage. Use a sterile gauze and over that, tie a bandage.
Step # 5:
Pay a visit to the doctor to seek medical attention. You need to keep a close watch over the wound. Any complications (such as rash/swelling/sudden fever, should be reported to the concerned medical representative).
Special Tip # 1:
To start with, you need to study the animal carefully for a couple of days. This is with special regards to a stray dog. If it has rabies then, it shall develop severe health complications.
Special Tip # 2:
You also need to ensure that within 7 hours of being bitten, you need to pay a visit to the doctor. The medical representative shall address all infection related issues. The doctor shall also administer the required injections or apply antibiotics to reduce the chances of infection.
Special Tip # 3:
Dog bites tend to infuse harmful bacteria into your bloodstream. Some of these include pasteurella and staphylococcus among many more. So, intravenous antibiotics is vital to get rid of these infections.
