Maybe your Finnick would enjoy a soft squeaky toy to mouth. That worked well with my Sting when he was a pup. I would redirect - say "mine" sternly when he mouthed my hand or feet - then give him his bear and make it squeak and say in a happy voice "this is yours" and praise him when he took it. I did have toys all over the house, so I could quickly grab one when he got mouthy. For the treats, as you said, he may not be food motivated, but he could be toy motivated so using a favorite toy or a ball as a reward may work better.
