That makes a lot of sense. Ours doesn't bite much anymore. I've told my wife when he gets bitey and defiant (for the lack of a better term) he is generally tired and wore out, needs a nap. Like a kid....
I've also seen him do these things when he is over stimulated. For instance when our son's dog comes, he goes nutz. He loves playing with her and is always excited to see her. However, he bites the crap out of her. She is a jack Russel mix and a very good dog. Yesterday he must have hurt her and she laid into him, made him cry. Which is good actually. I can usually get them both to calm down, "no biting", "leave it", etc. Sometimes I have to raise my voice to stop them for a little while and the resume play is much more civil.
I would associate your kids being the over stimulation. I think our plan with the toys and treats is awesome.
I'll have to try ice cubes and carrots.
