by controlling puppy mouthiness
A mouthy puppy is completely normal. Puppies perceiving everything as a chew toy is a natural part of their development. It is their way of learning the world, similar to babies discovering objects by touching. You will see this behavior especially during playtime, which can include nibbling on hands, feet and clothing.

Not every pup learns the same way but here are a few ways you can help them understand that your hands aren’t toys.
