At 10 months of age it has become a serious training issue.
I have never put up with it and sometimes it hasn't been gentle (when I reacted in a reflex). That was actually the last of it.

I'm gad i'm not the only one it happens to then
Trouble is if I use the "yelp" that the professionals tell you to do, it just excites him even more and eggs him on! We find that a simple "time out" resets his behavior, it's working very well so far.
I hope all our little carpet sharks calm down on the clothes ripping soon!

Mine was also a little shark when she arrived at home around 2 years ago. This can sound a bit ridiculous but what it worked with her was every time she used heer teeth against my arm, hand, trusers, etc i imitated the painful sound of a dog when is bitten or injured and immediately stop playing with her leaving the room for 5 minutes and then begin to play again. I also did it in the streets and people looked at me as if was crazy, lol.
This is the way puppies learn to play in a right way
We did this and in less than one week my puppy began to use her mouth in a very very soft way with us.
I hope this help you

|KayDub||Im glad to see this is a common problem. So it usually ends when they hit the toddler stage per-say? My sable last night during a potty break jumped on me not only pulling my pjs nearly to my ankles but ripping them also! Thank goodness I live on a few hundred acres no neighbors to see it happen. She's always catching the cuffs of my pants going for a ride when I accidentally drag her. They love chasing ankles I've learned.|

Hehe It is a rather good excuse for clothes shopping too :P
No, he honestly catches it by accident sometimes, for example the other night I was just about to give him a treat, but I accidentlly dropped it...he reached down to gobble it up but brushed against my trousers and caught them!
I might hold off on the clothes shopping until he stops ripping things! I would roll my trousers up, but it's rather cold here atm :S Brrr
