Mouthing is definitely different then biting. A 7 month old could still be mouthy but should know bid pressure by know. Keep working with him ..he should out grow this soon.

Maybe I used the wrong word. It's definitely biting. Any we want to play with him or anything. So this behavior should stop if I continue doing what I'm doing right?

Puppy recently had a bit of regression in mouthy bites behavior after her spay. She was 15 months. What worked was every time she mouthed, I would sharply say no, get up and take her to her crate. This requires you to keep a Leash on the dog when you interact. It worked very quickly, and was how I got her to learn the first time too.

Tess is still nipping and biting, not as bad as when she was smaller but it's bothersome. She's 5 months old now. Her trainer suggested that we take our hand and cup it over the top of her mouth and put a tiny bit of pressure there so that she's actually biting herself. This works when she puts her mouth on either myself or my husband and refuses to let go. My pup is a notorious land-shark, has been from day one.

We keep working with her on her training (leave it and off) and she is improving, however, she's teething now and has lost 3 teeth already, that we know of, not sure about the ones she has swallowed. I do NOT put any pressure on her mouth at all while she is going through this stage.

Be a little more patient and this should end for you very soon.
