1. he is very good in crate. When we put him in, he stays quite. Sleeps well in night. We just take him out once in midnight.
2. We live in 7th floor apartment and paper training him for going toilet in balcony of the building. he is doing good, except few accidents.
3. he is very hyper and always runs around the rooms
4. he is biting a lot and doesnt even allow is to touch him. As soon as we touch him, he takes our hands in his mouth. Also he chews on our sofa and doesnt stop even after shouting loudly. Please help on how can we stop this behavious. We even cant cuddle him as he starts using his mouth

The only way we could stop Gracie from biting us was by screeching like a wounded animal. It has to be a high pitched ear scratching noise. Once we found the sound she responded to, she stopped biting us almost immediately

Ozzy was awful with biting. He got better at about 4 months. All we could do was keep putting toys in his mouth to redirect him. We also learned that exercise helped. In our house a sleepy puppy was a happy puppy (and family).

I am not sure how old this pup is but he really needs some structured play/exercise time. You can work on sit and down adn leash walking all at an early age. When he is biting you give him a toy and praise him for chewing on the toy the same goes for chewing on sofa. Yelling doesnt really help train him not to do something. Redicting him to chew on what you want him to chew on will help.

This is a dog and a baby one at that. They don't understand your words until you teach them. They don't understand yelling. Do You get it when they just bark? Exercise and training are the key to a sweet cuddly dog. Paper training on the balcony is fine for a quick early morning or before bed potty break and great for that middle of the night trip BUT you are missing the opportunity to exercise the dog. A nice long walk for potty several times a day goes a long way towards a calm puppy.

All of the behavior you mention can easily be corrected with training and exercise. Training classes are a great bonding tool for puppies and people.

This is totally normal for a puppy, he is playing.

Stop yelling at him, he does not understand what you are doing and you will only make him afraid of you.

It is totally normal for a puppy, puppies explore and play with their mouths. Keep lots of toys around to put in his mouth when he bites you or furniture, etc. Move him away from the furniture and give him a toy or bone to play with. Or put him in a puppy pen or crate where he can't damage your belongings.

If you search through the puppy section of the board you will find lots of posts very similar to yours filled with great advice for how to train a puppy to stop biting. It does get better with patience.
