The only problem we're having as of now is biting... He bites everything. Fingers, skin, shoes, cables, everything that he can fit into his mouth. How can we stop this?

By trading him a toy that is appropriate to chew on. It's something they outgrow and need to be taught what is appropriate to chew on and what isn't.

The thing is, he* will ignore the toy and keep on chewing the thing that interests them. Taking him away from the item makes him just more interested in it. Shouting at it is bad, etc. I really don't know what to do :/

Make the toy come alive. Don't just shove it at him. Make it wiggle and jump, play a little tug with him. He'll go for the fun moving toy over the boring cable.

lol...I wouldn't get to concerned about it. He's just a baby. I would discourage it because it could be embarrassing one day when he's grown and you have company over. My friend's lab still does it and he's about 10. He sees Jax and starts air humping. Jax is never not impressed.

Toss something for him to chase and don't make a big deal of it, or else he might associate it with getting attention.

Okay, he had his second shot on Monday. Monday was fine, but today is weird. He doesn't want to poo at all, but he pees all the time!! I've been outside with him for a very long time in the bloody rain, I was soaked to death, but he wouldn't poo after about an hour/two hours after eating! He kept wanting to go home, I kept putting him on the grass, I was so annoyed, I still am. He peed about 3-4 times outside, then I went inside, we put him in the crate and he peed again!!! But he won't poo! What is wrong? Is he just being weird? Or is he ill or something?
