I have the same problem . My hands are all scratched because of her lol. As soon as she starts biting I give a firm no and I leave the room. She's very stubborn and is progressing slowly . She's 4 months . Hopefully after her teeth all come in she will stop.

When my puppy was 9 weeks he liked animal product chews the most - pigs ears, bully sticks, ostrich tendon, fresh cow hoof. It gets a bit stinky but they become the #1 source for chewing which is better than you being it. He's 13 weeks now and mostly chews his rubber puppy toys now. I have a variety of rubber and stuffy toys, I will give him two or three and keep the rest packed away. If he's not interested in what I give him I pack them away and give him something else. I found he went through phases - 10 - 11 weeks was manic then he suddenly calmed down.

Boy, I sure remember those days! Major was a Major biter! I actually had someone ask me once if I'd been working with rose bushes my arms were so scratched up! Fortunately, he eventually grew out of it and is just about perfect now. I probably could have done something but I just didn't try anything that worked. I don't remember how long this phase lasted...maybe 2 months or so? Probably not that long but just seemed like it! Good luck!!

Mongo is ~4 months and has just recently become biting crazed. I've actually noticed a pattern to it. It's almost always the late evenings after we've been playing for a while. He gets this possessed look and then goes biting crazy. I say no and attempt to walk away but this usually results in him chasing/nipping me.

He already knows some commands such as sit, off, and down but seems to forget these during the biting craze. I've tried replacing my arm with toys, nyla-bones, and elk antler but it seems my arm provides far more excitement.

The only thing that has worked is to get him in his crate for about 5-10 minutes and then he gets a chance to calm down. He always seems to exit in a very mellow mood and will then lay and chew an antler.

Anyhow I wonder if i'm playing with him to much (is that possible???) which is putting him in this delerious biting state?
