    Gunny would love it. I have to hide the wine from him. *sigh*. They could probably do an intervention on him.

    Don't get on his leave with your face then it will not get bit. When you get on his leave he thinks it's OK. Puppies play bite and some are rougher than others. When he gets too rough stop the playing. When he grabs your clothes, grab the back of his neck as others have suggested. He will eventually grow out of it. We had one that loved to bite all the time and we just kept telling her NO and putting a chew toy in her mouth and if she did not stop, we gave her a time out in her crate to rest. You will find when they start getting tired they will start to go crazy, so it's nap time.

    Basic obedience training to show leadership role in combination with consistently by stopping the behaviour with a shhht and slight poke to show "no" or whatever method you use and replace with a chew toy you approve of will get you great results.

    In the meantime the baby teeth are ruthless but staying on it now is key.

    Lastly learn the energy level of your puppy, reward calm submissive behaviour and stop "before" the red zone which can be awfully close as a puppy as they have so much gusto

    Good luck!

    Having a pretty rough day today. Remi bit me pretty hard and started running circles around the house, going bananas. It hurt pretty bad (drew blood and I totally let out a scream) and he was totally unaffected by it. He got more aggressive as I tried to put him on his back. Will have to try something else.

    Have you started any training classes with him yet?

    No, but have been doing a ton of online research and implementation. Training classes an absolute must?

    It is a great way to get the basics down and help you bond and teach him that you are the pack leader.... also give oppurtunity for socialization

    Hey, you've already gotten some great advice.
    Rook was a constant nipper too, and I had vowed to never get another puppy because he really pushed the limit.
    I didn't have access to obedience classes at that time (I was living in Montreal and all the classes were in French, et mon francais n'est pas bon!). Doing basic training exercises several times a day really helped, but I think the classes would have definitely made life easier, so if you can find one do it.
    Rook would get super hyper if I was sitting down on the floor with him, and if he did nip and I yelped it seemed to only egg him on more like it was part if the game. I started to only play with him by squatting instead of sitting on the floor with him. If he started acting up I could instantly say NO, stand up and end it or walk away if he was being persistent.
    It really does get better with time, especially when they get out of the teething stage. The key is finding whatever works for your bully and being consistent.
    Rook is now a year old and I can lay on the floor and snuggle with him. Okay, he will occasionally still grab my pant leg and tug on it because it is imperative that I give him all of my attention every moment of the day... But that's also kind of why I love him so much!

    Frankie is the SAME way she can be so sweet, but then she will bite, bite... she grabs our pant legs and pulls.. When I try to release her from my fingers or what ever she's biting she grawls at me. We do the switching with a toy, but she then goes after my other dogs and then after us again and she has drew blood on several occasions.

    She also will sit there and bark NON stop if I do the "shunning" to her when she won't stop biting and drives me crazyy!!
