Courtney_Chambers Thank you! I have to say he's getting much better! He still bites for play, but he's almost 4 months old and definitely listens way better. I give him a simple "ah-ah" and he stops

gaia_bear Redirection works really well, if he's getting too bitey or bitey at all replace what he's biting with a toy and praise.

Donovan514 Yeah, the pup won't stop completely right away. It will take time.

Courtney_Chambers Thanks guys! I did train him "off" and it works GREAT when I have a treat. No treat, not so much. Maybe just needs a little more work. He's super smart.

You need to teach him the "Off" command. This is simple... Put a dozen or so training treats in your closed upside down fist and put it in the pups face. When he begins to sniff, lick and even bite your hand to get the treats out, say "Off" and once he stops sniffing, licking or biting, drop one treat out of your palm, then repeat.
