Is your Coton de Tulear nipping or biting?
Why is it important to learn how to stop puppy biting? Puppy biting isn't the same as when an adult dog bites. It's not considered aggressive behavior; it's just considered part of play and a way of getting attention.
While it's not aggressive and it can even be quite cute to have a little puppy nibbling on your hands or feet, it's very important to stop it right away before it gets ingrained in behavior that is definitely undesirable in an older dog.
Puppy biting is often called nipping and it's how very young puppies learn how to play and show affection. This behavior comes naturally to dogs so it's our job to intervene and show them a more acceptable way of demonstrating play and affection.
If we don't step in, this cute puppy biting behavior can become annoying and sometimes dangerous behavior in adult dogs. We've all heard the horrifying stories of dogs biting young children.
