I will tell you what my trainer did ...and Hoss never bit HIM again.............it was the very first meeting Hoss had with the trainer ...Hoss was 5 months and Hoss attempted to bite his hands as the trainer was speaking with me ........the trainer did what he called...tickling his tonsils..............do this when you are standing up.............when he bites or knaws on your hand
While you are standing ........with your palm up...... .........go ahead and push your hand further into his month with your palm up..........while lightly wiggling a couple of your fingers ..thus "tickling his tonsils" !!!!! Yep...its slimy........
The intent is to cause a gag reflex in the dog.......He will likely gag or hack..............and hopefully he won't like it.............so he won't do it anymore.........
Important.........when you do this ....no words are spoken .........give him a good tickle on the very first try...............shouldn't be something you should have to do over and over again...............

When Hoss was small and I was playing with him......I always wore long sleeves to protect my forearms............keep your hands away from his mouth.......use toys that are long and allow you to play without coming close to the teeth...................like invinsible snakes (amazon) ........or flirty poles.................meanwhile .......axel is teething so he loves to chew...feels good to him..................fill that large kong with something a freeze it.........I make
puppy sickles..........use an ice tray ...........fill with some kind of food and freeze........the ice cubes you can shove into the kong ........
