doggiedad, spray bottles can work if used effectively. Some dogs think it's a game, in which case I would ignore him, redirect him, or use the muzzle technique, but if the dog hates the spray bottle, usually just the sight of it can get the point across to the dog instead of squirting it every time.

Pryght, everyone here has provided you with very insightful methods, it really just determines which one you like best and what works on your dog. Me, personally, I have had great results with getting up and walking away from the dog when he bites because my dogs love playing too much to give it up. The spray bottle may work for you, but it didn't for me, too much of a game for my boys. The muzzle pinch is effective, but I would try ignoring the pup, or using the spray bottle first, but that's just me.
