Bitter lemon is just if the puppy is chewing on something he/she shouldn't be. Not for putting it in his face.

Sounds like he knows the meaning of "no bite." If the teeth are doing damage, it's time to put a stop to it.

Others will let their dogs continue to bite them, calling it "normal puppy behavior." With two small kids in the house, that was not going to be an option for us.

Bella actually liked it at first. She even licked it off the floor. I had to use a lot.

It's squirted in to the mouth, not at the face.

I am one of the ones that encourage "normal puppy behavior" which in my dictionary translates to teaching soft mouth. A furbaby will never reach the point of reasoning and there may be a time when they snap. If they do not know soft mouth in my opinion it will be bad.
For example, Jack was taught soft mouth. When my husband's youngest son was playing with him he unintentionally blew it his ear (it was the way Jack fell on him). Jack turned immediately and snapped at him - but never bit hard.
When puppies play they use their mouths, the other puppy also teaches them not to bite hard.
I have a 15 yo daughter but also grandchildren all under the age of 4. None of them or us were ever injured.

I knew some would disagree. That's OK. Even though Bella has never beared down, it still hurts plenty. Everyone needs to assess their own situation and dog. In our case, the kids did not like being bitten whenever they were in the same room with the fluffy puppy.

To add....at 60-70 lbs the OP's dog is no longer a "fluffy puppy."

Binaca used sparingly. Casper is still a mouthy guy when he gets excited, but nothing like when he was younger. What works surprisingly well is for my husband to say "Stop biting your mama."

Binaca was the other thing recommended by the trainer. They actually sell bottles of breath spray at the training facility for this purpose. Some dogs like it, so they graduate to the lemon juice. I found that the pump on the bottle of breath spray didn't always activate quickly enough.

I'm just curious, how do you train a puppy to have a soft mouth? My puppy of 9 weeks at times does a soft bite but my problem is when he's super excited he tends to forget. I agree with enhancing the golden retriever soft bite and not completely stop their biting.

I don't think there ever was a moutier dog than Tayla. From the time we got her at 4 months until just two weeks shy of her one year birthday she bit and bruised on a daily basis. Then she just stopped. Cold turkey. When excited she sometimes gets mouthy, but not like before and not every day and she doesn't do that snapping pinch biting think I just hated. We did start using a compressed air can right before she stopped biting so I don't know if that was a part of it, but we still use it if she is getting overly excited. We don't spray it at her and I actually try to hid it, but she does know the can and sometimes that's all it takes. Good luck.
