Puppy Keeps Biting Leash, How To Stop?


Recommended Posts

You could put Vicks vapour rub on the lead, it generally stops pups chewing whatever you put it on.

You could also get a light chain lead with a handle.

Don't forget the praise when pup doesn't chew the lead.

General rule ¾ praise ¼ commands. Have fun with your pup.

My puppy grew out of this quite quickly. We just ignored it but it wasn't all the time, so the Vicks is probably worth a try. We also noticed our puppy was less likely to bite leash when we got him a harness to attach leash instead of his collar, but I wouldn't get one just for that reason.

Ignore puppy chewing lead.

Keep walking.

Most pups start to focus on what's in front of them very quickly.


...and I wouldn't use vick or something else - it might stop the dog biting on it, but he might develop some serious aversion to the leash and that will increase your problems when you want to attach the leash.
