Re: Help he bites!!
He will work for you because it works for him. You have all the good things he wants out of life- His food, his toys, and affection. Not necessarily in that order. It depends on what your dog wants.
You are fun and exciting and he can get none of those things from anywhere else, and this is how you can create a handler focused dog. He's young, but many people use NILIF. And it doesn't have to do with any physical force. My dog wants something? He can have it when he does what I ask, but I will show him what I want so he's not confused.
With my Schutzhund dogs, I choose to not physically correct until they are older (around 7-8 months) unless it is dangerous behavior. I will non-reward, ignore, time out, and use loud noises to deter unwanted behavior in puppies. I use the crate if I need a break from teeth and mayhem. I also trade for toys.
With the jumping in your face...you leave. You SQUEAL, and leave. Playing is done. He has hurt you, and you don't want to play anymore. I like to Pout, and put my back to my puppy and refuse to engage him. Put him away, and try again later. It also sounds like excess energy. So before you play with him, wear him out a little. It might bring the obnoxious behavior to a more managable level.
