So my puppy is about four or five weeks old he keeps biting on my ankles and hands 24 seven even when it’s not play time. he never punctured the skin but I have a lot of marks and scratches on me I try to redirect him and he sometimes even move toys out the way just so he can bite my ankles and I’ll try not to give him reaction so he knows I’m not playing but nothing seems to work any suggestions

At four or five weeks he really needs to still be with his mom and littermates. Learning bite inhibition is one of the important social lessons they learn from each other at this time. Also, it is illegal in a lot of states to sell or otherwise transfer a puppy before they are eight weeks old.

If he absolutely can't go back to mom and his siblings, you are going to have your work cut out for you.... redirect, redirect, redirect... if that doesn't work. either leave the room for a few seconds (assuming you have a gate up) or else pop him into his crate or x-pen for a few seconds.

Okay thank you. And trust me I wouldn’t wanna separate him from his mother but the people who sold him to me said it was fine
