I have an English Mastiff puppy, 10 weeks old. And when I play with her, or just even pet her she will play bite me. But its really hard, and it hurts. Shes is playing because she doesn’t bark, or growl. I know puppy’s will bite, but how can I train her not to bite so hard?
She’s probably teething. I have an English Mastiff puppy right now too, named Katie, she’ll be turning a year old next month. Your puppy could just be biting because she is teething and needs things to chew on, as long as she isn’t drawing blood she’ll be fine, give her plastic water bottles for her to chew on and she’ll soon stop biting unless you are rough housing. Stuffed toys also work, but they sometimes, if not very often confuse their stuffed toys with actual stuffed animal. But plastic water bottles work, I’d advise you to keep anything out of reach, even if things are on a counter because Katie can get on a counter and will chew my books or very important papers apart. They are also very lazy dogs and are sometimes difficult to train on a leash. If you have any more questions about caring for a Mastiff puppy feel free to e-mail me at: email@example.com I’d love to help you deal with the puppy. Also another tip, try and give the puppy a spanking when she bites too hard and clearly tell her "No."Or grab her by the scruff, its what their mothers would do to show them not to do something.
