Default He likes to use his paws...

I'm not sure if this is a breed thing, or if its a behavior I can alter...
My pup is a year old, and he uses his paws a bit too much. Those suckers are big and can hurt if you're not careful. When we tug, he cheats and uses his paws to try to win. If I lay down on the floor, he will lay next to me but tries to put his paws on me and they're heavy! A couple times they've landed on my face.
I'm pregnant and I'm worried about him trying to put those suckers on the baby.

Can I get him to knock this off? Teach him that it hurts?
It's like he doesn't realize he is big and can hurt me....
