|Ohhh, I remember the "needle teeth" biting days of puppy hood! The good news is that you're not alone (puppy biting is normal) and that it will pass.
We used a combination of approaches with the pups, including redirecting them to something that's okay for them to bite/chew (toys), and saying "Ouch!" in a high pitched voice and turning/leaving the puppy for a bit (to signal the end of playtime because of the biting). Because they're teething, we also had A LOT of different things for them to bite/chew on of various textures. Hang in there!
