Default Digging and play biting

How do I get my dog to start digging in the dirt and play biting.

To stop? Redirection works really well. Maybe she is getting bored. How much exercise does she get? My girl turns into quite the little shark if she doesn't get her daily walk and training time.

He is a year old and gets a lot of exercise. It happens most of time when I go to pet or my kids go to pet him. We reach our hands out and he opens his mouth and tries to get our hand in his mouth. Or if he wants to do something and he's not allowed he will try again. How do I correct this.

Taking him into another room when he demands attention can help. Tell him no the first time, and walk away the second. If he follows, walk into another room. The important thing is consistency. Just crossing my arms and turning away (be a tree method) worked with my Australian shepherd mix.
