Default Biting at clothing.

So Nexus is 10 weeks old now. We are still in the middle of bathroom training as well, but I really need to quell his desire to bit at clothes. He's already ripped a number of pants and shirts, and I have a couple battle scars as well.

One of my concerns is giving him enough general activity. Right now between the cold and general weather he hasn't been able to play as much outside. Inside he will try to latch on to anything; shoes, furniture, clothing, etc. A little worse is the clothes that are on you.

I've tried general "break" commands, but to no avail. It's one thing when he is in the house and has a shoe. It's another when he is outside and is charging at one's pants. A couple times i was able to calm him for a few seconds by hold onto his collar directly and petting him in the back of the ear saying "settle". But this has been a 1:50 success.

I wish I could let him run around the house more, but he is just to "bitey" at things. I know this is just fun for him but I need to find some corrective action sooner than later.
