Luna tore up my hands, arms and legs with her biting when I got her at 7 1/2 weeks. It took about 4 weeks for her to stop. I did a combination of things:

1) I never got her excited by talking/playing unless I had a toy she could chew on.

2) I tethered her to me when I was at home. ALWAYS. That way she never had the opportunity to chew on something she shouldn't, or if she did I was close enough to just give her a toy in exchange and reward her for chewing on the right thing.

2) Redirect, redirect, redirect. I always have a toy handy around the house, or in my pocket.

3) If she did manage to bite me, I would sream "Owww" like a puppy would. That startled her and she would lick me instead.

4) A few times she got so excited playing that she would not listen. That got her a 10 minute time out in the bathroom, with the lights off. She only did it 3 or 4 times and never again.

Now, at 4 1/2 months, I'm able to roll around with her in the floor and she won't bite me at all, and if I feel her teeth around my skin I "ouch" and she immediately wags her tail and licks me. So cute :)

Sometimes it feels as if it would never stop, but patience and consistency do the trick. They get it, eventually :)
