Try a flirt pole, and tease him with it like you'd tease a kitten. Once he's gotten hold of it, make it "wriggle" in his mouth so that he'll want to bite down harder. From there you can add a little bit of pressure, gradually, so that he can build his bite. If he lets go, swish the toy about with jerky, unpredictable movements to excite his prey drive so that he latches on again. When he's got a good, deep grip on the toy, let go of it so that he "wins" the game. Gradually you can start to challenge him more. How old is he? If he's teething, you need to be careful about tugging.
