A puppy is a puppy and they all train the same way..consistency! As far as the biting, no teeth on the human is ever acceptable. Give a firm no, like you mean it and remove his teeth from the human. Substitute a toy or chew bone after the brief scolding. Never smack your puppy as this makes them leery of people. You do not want your pup to fear you but rather respect you. Working dogs as a whole need a valid reason why they should or should not do something. They question everything. It is your job to answer and give a valid reason. As far as housebreaking, routine and timing is crucial. The pup is training you to be on top of his behaviour. Crate training is the quickest most non stressful way for both of you. Most pups will have to go to the bathroom approximately 10 minutes after feeding/drinking and waking. When you can not supervise your pup, crate him. It is for his safety and your sanity.

cont. Keep in mind that no puppy is ever 100% housebroken until at least one year of age and even then they may still have an accident. When we crate train puppies we have them out on the hour, sometimes more if they start sniffing around. We never give our pups the oppurtunity to pee on the floor. They are carried from the crate to the outdoors or when they are sleeping on the floor. If your pup refuses to go the bathroom when you put them outside, put them back in the crate and try again in 10 mins.. He will catch on if you are consistent.
