Question Binn is nipping.. help!!

I know this is natural for puppies to do but Binn seems to go overboard with it. Binn's snout latches on to anything and everything that moves. His little teeth have poked and torn holes in almost all of my clothing. He'll attempt to drag my clothes around... with me still in them! He also latches onto skin and that really hurts. If I push his snout away and say NO he thinks its a game and he'll do it again. I try and reach for a toy while saying NO and pushing him away before he can nip me again. Is what Im doing wrong? I know this is a puppy phase but how can I handle the situation better?

When you push him your rewarding him because your touching him... No more pushing! Just stand tall and still, turn around and ignor him. Put him into a sit and reward him for his good behavior.

Roxy did this to all of my good work clothes when she was a puppy. I just ignored her, when she buggered off, I'd call her and play with her. She figured it out pretty quickly.

Oh.. I didn't know I was rewarding him by doing that.. intresting!

He will settle down after a while, you just have to be patient, as grammy said. Don't look him in the eye, or anything, just completly ignor him and look up at the sky. Your like a wall this way, dogs don't bite walls do they? The second he settles down, get him to sit and praise him. If he starts getting nippy again, ignor him again. It takes time, he will figure out what you want of him after a while. This worked for me and I had a really nippy pup, ACDs are quite a mouthy breed.
