Evening all I'd really like bit of advice if possible..... Milo is our 13 week old and we really struggling with his biting, we have tried all the remedies I can find, having a you handy, letting hand go limp, yelping, going in another room etc, only one that seems to work is we have a pen in the living room where we put him when he won't settle and is biting everything and everyone... He looks over the top for bit but then just goes sleep, we let him out then he's up to the same stuff within five mins..... Any pointers please, I hate to admit its beginning to feel like a mistake in gettin him and I hate myself for thinking that, and want to work through this to get to the stage I know we can get to

I feel your pain, this is something everyone can relate to I think.
This will pass 😉, just keep giving a very firm NO! and place him in time out(even if you are constantly having to do it) the penny will drop eventually. Just be patient and consistent.
You might also try knotting up some old strips of tea towel soak them in water and freeze them , give him one when you put him in time out... he's more than likely teething and this will ease his gums ....

Can only speak for myself but I remember the biting and thinking what have i done,but 7 years later my little monkey is known for the most part as Mr calm.No cures but he really didn't like time out, and carrots .He didn't eat them just shredded them ,it gave him something to do with his teeth,combining the two,time out and something to chew or lick,frozen chicken water or frozen yoghurt ,a carrot helped. He is still quite young ,and when the walks get longer he will tire more. Dexter loved my veg box,empty of veg, digging and resting in the soil,again tired him out,he also got used to brushes etc. as mucky and doodles seem to go hand in hand . hope this helps, other people may have different experiences, but those were mine.
