Are you doing the training yourself, or are you training with a club? I think he is only 9 months old and you got him when he was five months? he probably not ready for the transition. For some dogs, biting a sleeve is biting a person's arm, and in their mind, a big nono.
If you are training him yourself, there is a lot of psychological conflict involved in biting you, can't really ask him to do that, especially while still a puppy.
If you are working with a club, put him away for six months to a year, and let him grow up and mature.
Even then, he may never get into bitework, might be just going against his nature.
