Hello. I want to share what I did with Ache for the biting. You can search around information about bite inhibition and it may be better explained than what I can say but in my words... Everytime Ache bit, I( or the person bitten ) said OUCH really loud, just turn around and don't even look at her. Stop all attention towards the puppy for 30 - 60 seconds. If he bites really hard, you should walk away to some place where he can't see you. It is easier if the puppy is tethered while playing with you but if he is free, you can go inside a room and close the door for 30 - 60 seconds. Almost sure, the puppy will wait for you at the door. When you go out, if he is calmer, you say " much better " and start again... OVER AND OVER AGAIN. You have to do the same thing if he bites your pants or shoes. It is not easy but it works and he will soon learn that biting is not fun. Good luck !
