I just went through this myself with a little male Cockapoo x terrier. He's a sweet dog, but chewed and could even be pretty rough if I played with him. There are babies so I went out and got a HARD BABY SOOTHER and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes and then gave it to him. He love it and chewed on it for long lengths of time! It soothed his gums and gave him something to bite on. WARNING: Be sure you don't get the soothers that are soft and have water or other liquid in them. The hard rubber ones with flexible points are the ones to get. It's important you get on the floor and play with your pup. Whether puppies or adult dogs they love you to get down on the ground at their level and my husband and I still do that with our 2 dogs usually in the evening. Teach him/her to play ball, rub it's tummy, constantly tell it he/she is a good boy or girl and give a lot of encouragement. Slippers, pillows, etc., are out of bounds and if the pup is insistent then tap him/her on the nose with two fingers (not too hard) and say "shame!" They get the message loud and clear. Playing with your pup keeps their little minds active and away from destroying your furniture, shoes, etc. Puppies need to go to the bathroom approx. 15 - 20 minutes after drinking or eating so if you miss it and they make a mistake give yourself a kick in the butt and don't scold the pup. I use both paper (for emergencies) and outside I never leave my puppy alone outside until he is a bit older) and it works well. Praising your dog for the good he/she does is most important and don't forget ... play and give the pup lots of love and security. You are the boss!

If you stand up, cross your arms, and turn around with your back facing the puppy they should get the picture and stop biting. If they don't leave the room for a moment. You can also try yelping like their litter mates did when they bit them.

How do you get puppies to stop biting?

give them a bone when a puppy bites too hard YELP in a high pitched voice, this mimics other puppy cries and the puppy should immediately let go, stop playing with the puppy when he bites and only play again when the puppy is more gentle, the puppy may also attempt to 'lick you better' after you yelp, this is good behaviour and you should reward them for this.

Every time the puppy bites give it a sharp tap on the nose (don't hit as it could hurt your puppy just a quick tap hard enough to make the puppy release) and tell it NO in a firm voice. A few times of this and the puppy will learn that biting is not good

How do you stop a cockatiel from biting you?

I have one and if you keep whistling to it and stroking it if it lets you then eventually it'll trust you and stop biting. But it depends on the cockatiel itself, so sorry if these dont work for you.
