Puppies have to learn at a very early age that they cannot put their teeth onto our skin, clothing or body in any way. This is called teaching them a 'soft mouth'. Normally puppies learn to develop this soft mouth from their mother and siblings through feeding, play and mock fighting. If puppies are taken from "bite school" too soon then they come into our homes without the required knowledge so we have to pick up where Mom and siblings left off. In addition, often children and adults accidentally encourage biting by inappropriately playing with small cute puppies. This only becomes a problem when larger teeth grow in and/or the puppy's jaws strengthen and your sweet pup hasn't learned the necessary bite inhibition.
