My 11 week old puppy won't stop biting. We've tried yelling ow, walking away and substituting his toys for our body part that he's biting. Can anyone offer another suggestion?

Sounds normal...

trying, but be patient and continue ignoring and substituting. It will end.

Make sure pup is getting enough exercise. Tired puppies are good puppies.

I got a can of pet corrector spray ( it's a loud noise..not something you spray on them)...it took only a couple short bursts to get Roxy to know that NO BITE and a continue of biting gets a can of air out. Like I said it took maybe 2 times of actually using it and now all I have to do is say "do I need to get the air?" she knows what that means and exchanges biting for licks.

When giving a toy it's has to be more fun than you. Ex.. You are probably flailing around because it hurts like heck which makes him want to bite you more, he's playing. Make the toy more fun than you, just tossing a toy won't work.

I've started rubbing a thin layer of peanut butter on my hands/feet (parts he was biting hardest and the most often).
As he licks the peanut butter off, I tell him "kisses-good boy" and pet him.
This, along with "ow" and substitution has helped. :)
Good luck!
