Hello! I finally got my shih tzu puppy last week. He's 2.5 months going 3 this coming April 9. Do you know any effective way to train him not to bite my hands and feet when he's playing?

Nung una kc sinasaway namin at nakikinig naman. Then starting yesterday, ayaw paawat na, laging nangangagat eh medyo humaba na yung ipin nya so mas masakit na yung kagat nya ngayon.

We're thinking it's probably because he's teething. He has enough toys to busy himself with, pero parang mas hinahabol nya yung paa namin at kamay.

Help please! Thank you in advance!

congrats sa new pup! as you said, teething nga pero aside from that eh nag lalambing lang yan ako pag ganon I just play along with the pup.

pero yung iba ayaw nila tolerate kasi pag may bata baka masaktan. so kung may bata sainyo wag niyo na lang tolerate. konting palo sa snout and firm voice should do the trick

Hi minion19, wow finally nakabili ka na ng puppy mo, well Shih Tzu, by behavior Shih tzu are very proud dogs and a happy one as well and happy to be with, nipping are very much normal to shih tzu puppy base on "My" experience, which they also out grown after a few weeks specially at this age mag 3 months pa lang cya. Right now nag teteeth pa lng cya and ye this is their only way of playing, who will also notice na instead of his/her toy, the puppy prefers to play you hand or chase you around and play with your feet, I always have the same problem when playing with my shih tzu pups well right now I have one here by my side and sobra silang active and never run out of energy, well para sa problema mo I would suggest to slowly discipline your puppy while their enjoying being a puppy, it's ok to play with them coz right now this is how a 2.5month old shih tzu puppy knows how to play and enjoy his puppy hood but train the puppy when to stop, you can try tapping you puppy's snout or what I do is make a sssshhhh sound to signal the puppy to stop, but most of the time like contrite I do play along as well :)) pero promise base on "MY" experience they out grow this behavior in no time, again this is base on "MY" experience alone.

Thank you po sa lahat ng reply! :)

These are very helpful, sige po I'll try doing that. Napansin ko rin yesterday na everytime kakagatin nya yung paa ko tapos masakit, I would whine like a hurt dog once. Then I play with him para maredirect yung pangangagat nya. Napansin ko parang nabawasan yung pangangagat nya. Although I'm not sure kung tama po yun.

About walking the dog, hindi pa po kami nakakapagwalk kc hindi pa sya kasya sa leash nya. so meron lang po kaming play time na hinahayaan ko syang maglakad lakad at magtatakbo sa room ko. normally ito yung time na nangangagat sya sa paa. pero medyo nabawasan na. Will monitor pa and use the tips you gave.

^_^

T_T sabi na nga ba may mali akong ginagawa! So far naman I don't do baby talk with him. I just don't know how to better or effectively discipline his biting. Yung labradoodle ko kc na dog, when he was a puppy very nippy din. pero since he's big, pag nangangagat sya, we can close his mouth tapos unting tap sa bibig. After a few days hindi na sya nagninip. With my shih tzu hindi ko maapply kc flat face hehehe.

Ay one thing po pala na napansin ko din, pag sinasaway sya tapos unting tap sa snout minsan akala nya nakikipaglaro pa rin ako. In this case ba, would it be better to give him time-out sessions para makalma muna sya? will that be effective in communicating that biting = no play?

yes ..pagtapos mo syang, we should say disiplinahin!..wait for 20 mins and play with her!...kasi pagtapos mo syang pagalitan tapos nag play kayo o kaya binigyan mo sya nang comfort, iisipin nang aso ok lang yun!..mawawala na sa isip nyang pingalitan mo sya!...
but before you comfort the dog iwasan ang emotion!..
let your authority felt...

Alam nyo nang 1st time kong gawin ang sabi nang libro parang hindi ko kaya!...parang naawa ako,gusto ko silang e treat like a human..but no..mali pala yun!...

Dogs dont need love they need a leader! a strong minded leader...its dog's way of life!!

ay sa tanong mo pala sir minion
just say "no" with a firm ang medyo angry voice!....lagyan mo rin nang hand signal! but kailangan ang hand signal na "no" mo ay isa lang ..i mean yan na ang gagamitin mo sa "no" command permanently..=)

ah, got that! Sige I'll try the time-out approach.

Hehehehe, oo nga eh lalo na pagpuppy sobrang cute kc nila kaya minsan parang nakakaawa paluin or hindi pansinin. But I understand the importance of discipline. Saka yoko rin naman na paglaki nya eh saka sya salbahe tapos maraming maiinis sa kanya.

I'll try this and hopefully it stops the nipping. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng comments and suggestions! ^_^
