Smile training advice

Hi Everyone! My havanese puppy is about 3 months old (17 weeks) and we love him to pieces! I wonder if any of you had advice about the dry/wet food debate....he seems to only want dry food one week and only wet food the next week. When will he stop biting everythin haha- he loves chewing and while i know this is a puppy thing i'm just curious if Havanese puppies do it more or teeth longer? Also, if anyone had any tips or advoce about his attachment to me. I realize the breed is very attention craving of people but I'm worried his attachment to me may be unhealthy. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

here's something on the hyper-attachment issue http://pawsitivedawgs.wordpress.com/...alonetraining/
as for the food issue, you have to decide what type of food you want to feed. Wet ,canned is healhier. But whatever you feed , stick with it. Put it down for ten minutes and if he doesn't eat , pick it up and wait til next scheduled feeding to feed again. He will learn to eat. If biting is becoming an issue, here is an article too http://www.clickertraining.com/node/3249 Welcome welcome .
