Put something between you and the dog so he isnt biting your hands. Use a rope toy or something you both can play with. Also, if he bites you, make a loud yelp noise like his littermates would if he bit them too hard and he will get the idea.

Yelp "Ouch" everytime he bites and get up and walk away from him. He should learn that if he puts his teeth on you, you will not play with him.

May sure he has plenty of toys to bite and throw around. When he bites you hit his nose with a rolled up newpaper and say no very firmly. It will take time and patience but he should respond eventually. You have to be very strict with labradors.

PUTTING A TOY IN BETWEEN YOU IS NOT GOIN TO HELP WITH HIS BITING TRUST ME....IF YOU NEED ANY MORE... More

I also have a Labrador dog, and what I found best for correcting his biting was to give a loud 'ouch' when he sunk his teeth in. This usually stopped him each time. I would also give him a slight tap on the nose and say 'no' firmly when he 'forgot.' It works everytime for me, and when he plays he gradually uses his... More

The minute he bites yell 'ouch' very loudly and turn away from him. He will soon learn that this is unacceptable behaviour. Anyway have a small treat in hand so if he does stop immediately you can reward him. Lab puppies will do anything for food so it'll work very fast. Good luck with the little lad. Cathy
