Take a breather, relax with the kids, watch TV, whatever. He can chill in his crate.

I would also work on brain stimulating work. Nose works, obedience, tracking, tricks, something to wear his brain out. Right now he is manipulating you. Puppies love to do that. They figure out what gets a reaction then do it over and over and then up the ante if you don't respond.

It does get better.

We do doggie day care once a week, obedience training for an hour a week with our trainer and then 2 thirty minute walks a day, probably another hour of fetch (broken out over the course of the day) and do training at home for at least a half hour a day (again broken out over the day not all at once). I am trying to use the time out approach, but when she is being bad I can't cTch her, and often when I do, the biting occurs
