When Dogs Stop Biting

How old must a dog be to cease biting?

Puppies frequently begin to act in this way when they first move in with us. Usually, they are acting in this way because they want to play and haven’t yet realized that it isn’t very enjoyable for us! Because they often have greater energy, some puppies, especially those from working breeds, appear to play bite more or harder.

The most crucial thing to keep in mind is that the majority of pups will normally grow out of mouthing or play biting once they are between three and five months old.

Consider it as something that, with proper management, will improve over a short period of time rather than something that must be completely avoided. Puppies need our tolerance, support, and direction during this period to teach them that humans should be handled kindly, just like very young children who go through many challenging stages as they mature.
