My Chewy has bitten me...need some advise

Hello, there.
Chewy (my 2 1/2 year old) recently started to bite.....he has bitten me. And to find out, he had also bitten my husband 3 times, and my mother (when she watched him in the past) 3 times. I'm not sure whats causing him to bite us.
Just this sunday, I took him out first thing in the morning(i didn't leash him) so that he can go to the bathroom. Normally, he would do his business and come right back inside but this Sunday morning, he was roaming around to walk toward our next door neighbor's back yard. I firmly said no and directed him to get back into our back yard. When he didn't listen to my command, i went to fetch hi. When i went to pick him up, he latched on to my hand and bit me.

I need some advise on what i need to do next. Please help.....

I don't know why a dog that old would suddenly start to bite. Here's a recent thread where people shared all sorts of biting advice . . .

Good luck! (At least your dog's name perfectly matches his personality . . . )

I'd take him to the vet first thing and make sure there isn't some physical cause for it, since he didn't use to bite and this is relatively new.

I agree that a vet check is in order as any sudden behavior change can be caused by something physical. When/if that is ruled out, you really need MUCH more help than you can get on-line, and it would be irresponsible for us to even try to help you figure this out. PLEASE talk to your vet about finding a veterinary behaviorist to help you with this.
