  1. The best time to train a dog not to bite is when he/she is a puppy. You grab the skin of the upper jaw, insert it in the dog's mouth and quickly a puppy will learn that hurts! We trained many puppies not to bite that way. Often if you hold a toy in your hand, the puppy will bit the toy but not your hand.
