Most puppy biting is normal and completely harmless. If your dog bites another dog, you may want to take him to a veterinarian immediately. Your veterinarian will be able to determine the cause of the bite and treat it.

Why does my puppy bite my older dogs face?
If you see a dog biting another dog’s face, you can assume it’s because of playtime or aggression. However, if the dog is being aggressive towards another dog, such as a member of the opposite sex, then it may be a sign of a more serious problem. In this case, it would be best to seek veterinary advice.
Do older dogs teach puppies not to bite?
What is this? Playing with other puppies and older dogs helps puppies learn how to control their bite. You have to teach your puppy what to do when other puppies are not around. The first step is to teach the puppy that biting is a bad thing.
You can do this in a number of different ways, but the most effective way is by teaching them to bite when they see something they don’t like. For example, let’s you’re walking down the street and you see a dog on a leash. If the dog barks at you, it’s a sign that it doesn’t want to be left alone.
The best way to deal with this situation is for you to walk away from it and let it go. Then, when you come back to the same spot, pick up the leash and give it a gentle tug to get it to stop barking.
Repeat this process a few times until your dog learns that barking is not a good thing and it will stop when it sees something it likes.
How do I get my puppy to respect my older dog?
Exercise and play with your pup to burn off some energy then bring pup on a leash near your older dog. Your puppy should be distracted when your older dog notices it. You can make a funny noise and call your puppy. For a few minutes, ignore the other dog and ask him to sit or lie down. After a while, ask your dog to come over and sit on your lap. Repeat this process several times.
If you are having trouble with this exercise, you may want to try a different approach. For example, if you have a dog that is very territorial and will not come to you when you call him over, try using a toy to distract him. You can also try playing a game of tug-of-war with the dog on the leash.
Should I let my puppy play fight with my older dog?
You are the ultimate leader, not the older dog, and you need to make sure the puppy doesn’t harass the older dog. A puppy can play an adult, but this is not always the case. If the puppy walks away because it no longer wants to play the older dog needs to be removed from the situation. If you are not sure what to do, ask your vet for advice.

Why is my puppy obsessed with my older dog?
The simple answer is that your dog is obsessed with other dogs because your dog either wants to play with the other dog, is fearful, or has created a bad habit of trying to interact with every dog in the neighborhood. The more complex answer is that your dog may have a fear of dogs, but it’s not because he’s afraid of them.
It’s because his fear is based on the fact that he doesn’t know what to do with a dog. He’s been taught that dogs are dangerous, and that if he interacts with them, he’ll get hurt. This is why he tries to avoid them at all costs, even when he knows that they’re not dangerous. If he can’t get rid of the fear, then he has to find a way to deal with it.
How long is the puppy biting phase?
