Training a 3 Month Old Puppy Not to Bite

I have an American Bulldog. He is now 14 weeks old and I love him like no other, but I really can't deal with his biting (to the point of drawing blood on me on a daily basis). Can some body please help me out? I have tried everything, including hand in mouth, pinned him down, yelp and turn away, time out in crate, chew toys, everything. And there has been no change. He is a great dog when being good, but terrible when being bad. He comes at me for 20 minutes at a time then he's done and back to a normal great dog. He is now in school 3 classes so far.

Get him, gently by the scruff of the neck and lift his front feet off the ground, and hold him that way until he protests. You are not choking him but you are showing him that you are not amused by the behavior. While you are doing this, say "No Bite!" in a mommy dog growly like voice. Then give a little shake and then put him down.

Also I would keep a little fleece leash like extension on him and that will help you to calm him down. At the same time as you are correcting him, make sure there are plenty of other ways for him to get his teeth into things, he needs to teeth, just not on you.


Watch him with all toys and give him coke plastic bottles that are deflated, and milk jugs, knotted ropes, and anything to chew on, lots of rawhides or nylabones if you object to rawhides.

Hope this helps....You also need to scream out in pain when he bites and holler no right away.

At the same time increase his time wtih outdoors playing. He is just being mouthy. Playing in an innappropriate manner which mama dog would never allow.
