I have read the bite stops here as I have read I should. I am having issues with my 5 1/2 month old puppy. I don't know if I would say he "bites". He never breaks the skin or even leave a mark. It pinches sometimes. Everyone I encounter says he is still young and that labs are just mouthier then other dogs. I have even been told more then once that they have labs that bit until they were at least 2 years old. I can't wait that long. I have told him "no biting" and stuck a toyin his mouth every time or whimpered (which only excites him more). It seems like by sticking a toy in his mouth he figures when he bites we will play. That is not the message I want to send. So is this something I should just ride out? I don't think I can do that.
