That`s why it`s very important to know how to stop puppy biting?

Keep in Mind

First, you can teach your Staffy puppy by pitching voice higher - the dogs are very clever animals and they understand even the slight intonation change, therefore, if the owner says strictly "You must not!" the game should be over. You should give your Staffy this command only when he starts using his teeth during the game.

If Staffy puppy got absorbed with playing and is without responding to your command, slap the dog a little with a newspaper (the newspaper should be prearranged).

Don`t worry, your Staffy puppy won`t feel any pain from the slight slap, but the harsh sound will be unpleasant.
