He loved it! we read that if you praise him on the good things he does he learns fast, and as you mentioned when he poops outside we praise him once his done, if he seats, lies down, or stops biting we also praise him. We also read that when he bites you even if it was just a tiny bit that you should scream like it really hurt you, although your technique of leaving him and giving him the idea that it hurt and you got mad it's amazing I'll tell my husband and try to practise him, when needed I don't want my puppy to be terrified, but mannered. Where can I buy the apple spray? Once more thank you all for the help.
Glad you found a toy he likes!
You can buy Bitter Apple spray at any pet store. Petsmart should carry it.

Its going to take a while, just stay firm and consistant. This constant biting and chewing is one reason why they learn such a soft mouth.....lots of opportunities to train a soft mouth when you have a Golden Puppy.

While he's learning to not chew on furniture, electrical wires, remotes, you really have to manage him and watch at all times. Crate when you can't watch him.

Good luck

It's normal for a puppy to be biting everything, also he might be teething. Hang in there it will get better!

We crate him at night since we can't watch him 24/7. I work full time and my husband is unemployed now so he is mostly occupied training him. The first 3 times in the crate were terrible but now I cannot complaint about it he behaves really good, although we have to put him inside he reacts to it nicely. My biggest concern is the biting, it also can be possible that he is teething I noticed he has a couple of teeth coming out specially on the back of his jaw. I might give it a try with the bitter apple spray. By the way you can also find it at Walmart.

I noticed a big and sudden change in the biting at about 4 months....that's when I realized the "toy replacement" that I didn't think was working earlier actually did work. There is a time where things "click"....

He is 3 months old guess a couple more months and he'll be out of it.
