    DefaultLab Behavior Problems - Biting & Mouthing

    With all the questions about biting and mouthing, combined with the number of puppy battle scars I have myself, I have decided to write an article on Lab biting and mouthing. If I missed anything, please let me know... I always appreciate feedback!

    Being a first-time Labrador Retriever owner brings with it not only responsibility but often battle scars. This particular dog breed was bred for using its mouth for hunting and retrieving game. Know the types of biting, the warning signs, and how to correct unwanted behavior.

    Thanks! I always appreciate the feedback because I know that what may be good for one Lab may not be good for another. Just want to make sure the articles work on a global level.* ;D

    Good article.

    We used a variant on what you suggested.* I bought a large package of Hartz Mountain chew sticks.* These are cigarillo size and made of tiny pieces of rawhide glued together in a flavored medium and made in the USA.

    Whenever Puff attacked my ankles, socks, hands, computer wires, unguarded spectacles, etc., I distracted her with a chewstick.

    That got us through the chewing puppy stage with minimum blood letting.

    BUT I think it's VERY important to make sure that the chewsticks are made in the USA or Canada -- most of them on the market are made in third world countries and lack consumer tollfree telephone numbers, or satisfaction guarantee, or national health standards for animal food quality.
