I'm Abhisek and i recently bought in a new friend in life.His is a black lab 7 and half week old puppy and named him hunter . I have started teaching him the basic house traning and is getting the sit and down part a little bit, but the only thing is he is too mouthy while playing and sometimes bites also during a play. Please help to to get him off this habit.
Welcome! If you search there are a lot of threads about the mouthing!

Welcome to the forum! Lab puppies are bitey little things! Different people train in different ways. We would put a hand on our Sophie's muzzle and in a stern voice say "Don't Bite!" every time she bit us. It took about a month and she finally figured out what we wanted and she stopped.

he's very young and that's how labs play, at that age , especially. try a sharp NO BITE and exchange your fingers or toes with a toy.be consistent.
Welcome to the forum. I remember being frustrated by this habit but it eventually went away. I am not sure what it was that stopped it. I have only had one lab pup and that was Jack so I really do not have a lot of experience with this trait. They get over it and Jack never nips or bites us an an adult so I am happy with that. Just make sure that he does not swallow anything. They try to eat everything.
