Default my dog bites!!

can someone help me. my dodge is 11 weeks old . hes wonderful very friendly and loving but recently at approx 6pm everyday he insists on biting me . its kind of a play biting but it really hurts it goes on for about 1 hr he does this thing where he looks at you and then lunges at your face . I have noticed that sometimes he does it when he needs to do a no 2 . but I have to stop it because it really does hurt!
still love him loads though any ideas how i can stop it? is it normal chi behaviour ? or am i raising a ravinmg lunatic? hes brilliant at all other times

excessive biting can lead to something like a really bad habit if they keep doing it. i still have a problem with my guy biting and hes 4 months old...i did however lessen the biting by using the water spray method and keep saying firmly NO! lol. but my poopiehead bf has a habit of playing rough...so hes been confusing poor dexter on how hard is okay to bite...

what goes on right before he lunges at your face? are you on teh floor playign with him? bam used to play bite but i taught him kisses when he got too rough at which point hed lick instead of biting. dodge is still very young so he's very impressionable - i would firmly say NO when he tries to lunge and stop the playing so he knows play stops when he gets too rough. it has to be a firm and loud NO unlike any other voice you use with him otherwise they'll just think you're still playing. this worked really well with bam - when i use my NO voice he knows i mean business and he listens to me.

Teething!! Sometimes just like a baby they have aggravated teething spurts!...Buy a little cold bite bone. Its a little cloth shaped bone that you soak in water and stick in fridge or freezer and they love to chew on that which might help distract from chewing or biting on you When he starts the lunging thing distract him with the cloth bone and then give him the bone to focus on and then ignore him and walk away.
