Sounds as if he might have been taken from his mother & siblings too early to learn bite inhibition, before you got him.    My Marley also had the same problem, but I got him at around 12 weeks old so was easier to retrain.      Whenever he used to nip I yelped like a sibling would and turned my back on him and walked away/stopped play time etc.   I also used 'time out'  i.e. removed him from the room.

If these simple things do not work you might have to look into a behavourist   - others on here will be able to give you more suggestions.

My friend is an expert on bite inhibition training...she is on bitey pup #3. Anyway we were playing with the pup and suddenly she screamed. I was so worried that I went over and looked at her hand. “Are you hurt? Are you bleeding?!”

”nope”, she said, “ didn’t hurt.”

i realized that is her bite inhibition training...it sure stopped ME in my tracks! 😁

Yep like shepsky said , yelping can help , its what their siblings would do if they bit each other too hard to let them know

Doesn't work on Wolverine.. alternatively,I have started patting him or directing his attention to something else such as a game of ball or a treat.. seems to work fine so far..

I just happened on this video whist looking for something else

 

The dog handler talked about why dogs bite, and although I didn't watch the ending, she was re educating the couple and dog in who was pack leader and where the dog came in the ranking. It might give you a few ideas?
