He is still very mouthy!

Chester will soon be 7 months. He gets plenty of exercise except on mondays and Wednesdays no one is usually home until 6:30 at night. I know it's a long time but it's just until April. This semester i was bombed with long hour classes. Anyway the reason i am posting this is because he still is very mouthy. I know its excitement and i tell him either no bite or if it's really bad which is most times i lightly close his mouth and say no bite. If he continues he gets time out. I've also tried spraying bitter apple but that doesn't last long, putting a toy in his mouth. He's a great dog, and i love him so much but the biting is really making me go crazy. Sometime's he draws blood other times i get bruised.

My question is what else could I do? and for those of you who had this problem could you just share me some stories and tell me around when did it stop so i know theres a light at the end of the tunnel. thank you all =)

Murph just hit nine months and is still mouthing. I make him sit and reward him but even that isn't always working. If the bitter apple bottle is within reach I pick it up and he stops right away. When I try to sit and read the paper he's up on my lap (80+ lbs) and starts mouthing,,,,,I reach right for the bitter apple and he stops. I don't even have to spray it anymore!!!

I don't know how much this could help you but you could try I guess? I am told with my 9 week old puppy to make a loud noise 'yelping sound' saying ouch and if they still bite then to ignore it and walk away. It's been working really well for me. It's what they would do to each other as litter mates.. just not sure if it would work for you because Chester is already 7 months old.

Well......many here are going to disagree with me, but here goes....

Get one of these, and squirt it in his mouth, while saying "no bite, no bite, no bite." You might have to squirt a lot, because a little might taste good to him. As soon as he stops biting, say "good no bite," while petting him on the head. After a few times, showing him the bottle should be all that's necessary. Bella knows the words, "lemon juice." If she ever gets out of hand, I don't even need to make the walk to the refrigerator.

This was recommended and demonstrated by a very experienced trainer at the facility we've been taking classes at since Bella was 12 weeks old. They say "no teeth on skin, period" from a very young age. So does my vet.

It's one of those yellow, plastic squeeze bottles, shaped like a lemon.
