How do i stop my puppy from biting my clothes?

Best answers

When you play with your puppy, let him mouth on your hands.

Continue play until he bites especially hard.

When he does, immediately give a high-pitched yelp, as if you're hurt, and let your hand go limp.

This should startle your puppy and cause him to stop mouthing you, at least momentarily.

  1. Turn away from him, fold your arms and give the command "Off."
  2. Your pup will try to follow you around. Keep turning away and saying "Off" until he stops jumping. Praise him and (if he knows how) ask him to sit. If he obeys, reach down to pet and praise him. Keep your praise calm.

Begin training early, as soon as you bring your Yorkie into your home you should be implementing training if your puppy bites.

Your actions and tone of voice will show your dog that biting is not acceptable.

Any time that your Yorkie puppy bites you, pull back your hand/arm/leg and say a loud "Ouch" or "No".
