I said this because there is anxiety which shows in the picture . This is a dog that in two posts was said to have difficulty in being handled .
The "sweet and gentle male has a bit of stranger danger and is going to a shy dog class.
You have issues with the dog mouthing you till you are bruised , looking like some abuse victim.

the dogs don't look happy or secure . I see an edgy worry , a self defensiveness about them. I think your fear around using integrated , clear training is making the dogs less able to be well adjusted. One dog already has an issue with being restrained by the collar. The dropping of the weight into a deadmans drop resisting to going to the time out room shows a learned helplessness . The dog doesn't know what to do to get herself out of the situation so does nothing -- or is and will continue to learn to fight back by mouthing , which is a testing for results with fear aggression.

You need to really evaluate the training and make changes for the dogs' sakes.

you sing you are my sunshine . the song I hear is mad world, and I'm radioactive.

the singing , first time I've encountered that -- ever .

If you think the assessment is wrong , show pictures of dogs in "happy" or a moving dynamic with a youtube.

not meant to get at you . sometimes one can't see the forest for the trees . letting you know what jumps out from those pictures to give you a different perspective.

for all the "bite" the dog has a very shallow tentative grip on the tug
the dog has a worried eye -- does not look relaxed , does look stressed
dog looks thin

delete if you wish -- just giving my observation --
