How to Stop an Alsatian Puppy From Biting

Alsatian, or German shepherd, puppies should be trained from an early age if they are to grow into responsible dogs. This task requires diligence as Alsatians can be aggressive if they are not trained appropriate behaviour early in life. The first 20 weeks in your Alsatian's life are the most valuable in relation to learning, according to The Dog Channel, and should be filled with obedience training and guidance from you. Knowing how to handle your puppy will ensure a happy, well-adjusted dog.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Instructions

1 Begin training with your puppy immediately. The sooner you can establish who is the alpha dog (meaning you) in your household, the better.

2 Correct your puppy through positive reinforcement. Don't hit or slap your dog. This will instil fear of you. When your dog begins to bite, tell it "No" or "Stop" in a voice that says you mean it. If it is biting when you are playing, tell it "No" and stop playing with it so it will associate the bad behaviour with losing play time.

3 Reward your puppy for its good behaviour. Like most dogs and other pets, Alsatians learn best when rewarded with praise, attention, petting and treats for good behaviour. This not only teaches an animal what to do, it teaches it what not to do. Alsatians respond well to encouragement, and they shut down when exposed to harsh voices, spankings and humiliation, according to the website Dog Obedience Training.

4 Encourage everyone in the house to work with your puppy the same way. Be clear on what commands to use with your dog. If you are commanding your dog to "Sit" and someone else in the house is commanding it "Down," it will never learn.

5 Make socialisation a top priority for your Alsatian puppy. The main reasons this breed becomes aggressive is because they are not socialised, according to Dog Obedience Training. The website recommends enrolling your dog in puppy school and make sure she meets many people throughout her life.

6 Allow your puppy plenty of exercise time. Lack of exercise causes aggression in dog, according to the Dog Obedience Training website, and Alsatians are very active by nature. At the very least, your puppy should be getting a vigorous 45-minute walk daily.

Tips and warnings

Only correct your dog for biting or chewing when you catch it in the act. Scolding it a few minutes or an hour later after the fact does no good, reports the Dog Channel.

If your puppy does not grow out of biting and trouble making in general, keep a muzzle on him when he is out in public.
