It's therefore essential to teach a Husky pup how to limit his biting habit when he is still young. When by default he draws away from his teeth making contact with human skin, this means if an accident happened, such as a child treading on the dog's paw, his instant reaction is to stop himself from biting rather than act how he might otherwise.
Instead, by understanding dog behavior and how his littermates would react to a bite, you can communicate with the dog in a way he understands in order to correct bad behavior and teach self-restraint.

I have tried the various way that have been told online to stop a puppy from nippng but these things dont seem to work in him instead when he nips I have used the withdraw attention he goes to bite a toy,the furniture or his puppy pad and just never seems to clam down and i have been trying different things although I still dont see a difference in his behaviour.So what else would you suggest ?
Hello Amar, If Ace is stopping biting you when you redirect his attention, and is biting his own toys instead, that is great at this age. A young puppy will not stop mouthing completely. It is natural for puppies to mouth. That is how they learn, communicate, relieve soreness from teething, let out anxiety, and relieve boredom. The goal is to teach a puppy WHAT to mouth, not to stop the mouthing. Check out the article that I have linked below and teach the "Leave It" method. Once he understands that command, if he does not stop biting you when you tell him to "Leave It", use the "Pressure" method to enforce the command. That should help him learn to stop biting you. Expect it to take time though. He is young. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite For the chewing of objects, stuff several large classic Kong toys with food and a bit of peanut butter. Feed him his meals in the Kongs, especially while he is crated. I highly recommend crate training him and giving him a food stuffed Kong while he is in the crate any time that you cannot supervise him. The crate is also a good place for him to go when he is too excited. Young puppies need to sleep a lot, and he might actually be overtired when he is getting a bit crazy. Give him a food stuffed Kong in the crate to make the crate pleasant and help him calm down. For objects that he tends to chew again and again, like furniture, purchase "Bitter Apple" or "Bitter Mellon" spray and spray that on the object to deter him. Occasionally a pup likes the bitter taste. It is rare, but if it happens, then try using white vinegar, but be careful that whatever you are spraying it on won't be ruined with the vinegar. Right now and for the next three months he will be teething. If you are diligent about teaching him what is acceptable and unacceptable to chew, then he should grow out of it the heavy chewing phase with time. The biggest goal is to prevent it from becoming a long term habit. /you can do that by teaching him to chew his own toys, supervising him, or confining him whenever you cannot supervise him. Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden
