Puppy Mouthing/Play Biting

Keep in mind that puppies, like human babies need to explore their environment. However, since puppies do not have hands, they reach out with their mouths. Puppy mouthing can also be a form of social play also. Given that human skin is more fragile than a dog’s fur-covered skin, puppies and dogs must learn that they cannot interact with us the way they interact with their canine counterparts.
