Learning how to moderate the force of a bite is very important for all dogs. There may come a time when they’re in pain or fearful, and they put their mouth on you or someone else. But if they’ve learned bite inhibition, they understand that they shouldn’t bite down hard.What to do if your dog bites you for no reason?
If your pet seems to be biting out of aggression, speak to a veterinarian or dog trainer about ways to manage that behavior. An AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy class or another well-run local class will provide your puppy with the chance to socialize with other dogs.What age can you teach a dog not to bite?
Bite inhibition is engrained in a dog at a young age; usually between 3 - 5 months of age. It's not that it's impossible to teach at a later age, but it's definitely more difficult as the rehearsal of being careless will likely leave a lasting impression on the dog.
