How to get a teacup yorkie to stop biting?

We have a 12 week old teacup yorkie and she always bites! She bites hard too, and she has sharp teeth. She also plays aggressively. Some times it’s cute, but it’s not cute when we have blood on our hands from her bites. How can we get her to stop biting and be a little bit more calmer? Thank you so much!

i get mine raw hides to chew it works great…my pups never bit me they prefer the rawhides…

    When she grabs hold, push your hand back farther into her mouth. She wont like having your hand stuffed in her mouth. Then she’ll stop. It sounds kind of mean, but it works.

    How old was she when you got her? Considering that she’s a "teacup", that means you got her from an irresponsible breeder, so I’m guessing probably "too early".

    Puppies learn bite inhibition from their siblings, which is why puppies that are separated from their litter too early (before 8 weeks) tend to have less bite inhibition because they never had a chance to learn it.

    You need to teach her – in her own language – that she’s biting too hard.

    Puppy biting is a normal, natural, and necessary puppy behavior. Puppy play-biting is the means by which dogs develop bite inhibition and a soft mouth. The developing puppy should learn that his bites can hurt long before he develops jaws strong enough to inflict injury. The greater the pup’s opportunity to play-bite with people, other dogs, and other animals, the better his bite inhibition will be as an adult. For puppies that do not grow up with the benefit of regular interaction with other dogs and other animals, the responsibility of teaching bite inhibition lies with the owner.
