Stop my eight week old Labrador from nipping - part I

This is part one of a two part e-mail.

Reader's E-mail - Jenny Writes:

Jenny (England)

Hi I have just bought a 8 week old black lab puppy I have had him 2 weeks and cant seem to stop him nipping and his teeth are very sharp. Do you have any advice please?

All About Labradors Blog Answer:

Hello Jenny,

The information given here is to help you learn more about your Labrador Retriever and not to replace your veterinarian's advice. Please read the full Disclaimer

Thank you for writing and visiting the All About Labradors blog. Congratulations on the purchase of your new Labrador Retriever.

What is his name?

Is this your first Labrador Retriever?

Yes, I do have some advice for you. I have an article on the blog entitled Labrador Retriever - Training your puppy to stop biting and nipping, which you can read over at this link:

Read the article and apply some of the listed methods and you should be on your way to nipping your Labradors biting habit in the bud.

Just so you know, in regards to the article, I do recommend Kong toys for your Labrador Retriever as they provide plenty of mental and physical stimulation. Make sure you buy the appropriate size for your Labrador and discard the toy when pieces start to break off. I am also a big supporter of using the crate for training.

If you don't understand anything in the article, please don't hesitate to write. If you have any other questions in regards to your Labrador Retriever just drop me an e-mail. You can send as many questions and e-mails as you want, I don't mind.

One last thing Jenny, with all the email questions I receive, I always ask a favor of the person writing. If you have any photos of your Labrador Retriever, that you could email me, I would love to post them to the Labrador Retriever Pictures blog.

If you do send a photo, and would like any caption to appear under the photo (Ex: Fido eating the garbage, my trip to the beach, dressed up for Christmas, etc.) make sure you let me know.

Take care of yourself and your new Labrador Retriever,
