This problem is commonly experienced by people who own Border Collie puppies. You might have experienced it when you were playing with your puppy and after some time, he gets very excited and without knowing, bites you. The puppy biting problem can also happen when you are playing in the yard. You may begin running and your Collie puppy starts chasing you while biting your legs.
This is a common problem with most Border Collie puppies. Though you may love playing with your Collie puppy, the frequent biting habit can really spoil your fun. Moreover, your clothes will be filled with holes from the puppy bites.
Normally, your puppy will outgrow the biting habit as he grows older and becomes an adult. However, if your puppy doesn’t learn that biting is not part of playing, he can continue with the bad habit into his adult life. Make sure you do something about the biting and stop it before it gets out of hand.
Why Your Border Collie Puppy Is Biting You
In many ways, Border Collie puppies are similar to children. They are very playful, curious and a tad silly. Unfortunately, the common games puppies love to play often include barking, growling and biting. This is because since the puppy was born, all the games he played with his siblings included play fight and chasing. So, when your puppy gets excited and is playing with you, he remembers the kind of games he used to play with fellow puppies and would like to “show” them to you. However, the best way to show you the game is by biting your feet or hands.
Generally, a puppy will learn that biting hurts others and that no one would want to play with them if they do so during playtime …
