Hes 3 months old. He learns great.
But he doesnt know how to play with toys, and i dont know how to play with him.

He needs to learn how to have fun because his biting is getting so bad and needs to learn bite inhibition before its too late and he can hurt someone.

Any time i try to bribe him with food, he enters food mode and sits still.

He is afraid of other dogs. Any encounter he has ends with him running and hiding

He cant pay attention to toys or playing for more than a second or two, so i cant teach him bite inhibition by ending a game if there is no game.

How do i play with my dog

Get a rag, tie a string to it, tie the string to a pole and drag it behind you. Guarantee he'll chase after it and try to catch it. You can start there. Use that same rag or a similar rag to play tug with him will also help. Both of these activities engage his prey drive, which is the desire to chase, catch, and shake prey. The rag shall be the prey, and your job is to make the rag move like it's a living thing as well as provide resistance.
