Testing limits or just too rough?

At times my puppy will get in a mood where no matter how matter how many times you correct him for bitting or chewing on your clothes he goes right back to it like he just does't care. I don't know if he is testing is limits, seeing what he can get away with or if he just gets so wound up that he can't stop. ANy suggestions?

Biting is especially common in puppies when they play & when they're teething. Being a puppy, he's still learning, so he'll test the limits of what he can get away with. If you're not consistent with your training, he'll know it & it will be harder to break him of the habit. If he can get away with biting some of the time, biting will never be eliminated totally. He has to trust you & respect you as his leader.

I would go to animal planet.com and look up it's me or the dog with Victoria Stilwell and e-mail it's me or the dog or victoria if you can or take your puppy to petco for puppy training classes the trainers there are really nice know what they are doing and won't be mean to the puppy. By the way your puppy is adorable maybe this cute little pup needs a kitten or another puppy to play with.
