Ever found yourself puzzled by a young pup's behavior during vet visits? I certainly was when a four-month-old trainee of mine was hastily branded as aggressive. Together, we'll uncover the stark differences between fear-based reactions and genuine aggression in puppies, as I recount a story that serves as a cautionary tale for all pet owners. Misinterpretation of natural responses can lead to serious consequences, emphasizing why it's crucial to discern a puppy's genuine temperament and why veterinarians without behavior training might not always be the best source for advice in these matters. 

On the journey of raising a puppy, mouthing and biting are obstacles every pet parent encounters. This episode is packed with insights on how to navigate this tricky phase, focusing on nurturing gentle play and teaching bite inhibition without resorting to punishment. I'll share my personal strategies that have helped countless puppies and their humans coexist happily. We'll go through the importance of appropriate training tools and techniques that can transform potentially problematic behaviors into opportunities for bonding and learning. Whether you're a seasoned dog owner or new to the world of puppies, these shared experiences will equip you with the knowledge to foster a positive and safe environment for everyone involved. #151 How to Stop Puppy Biting: Dog Training Today will Will Bangura, CAB-ICB, CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA, FFCP
