|The best advice that I can give is to look for a training class that uses positive reinforcement methods. Your Pom will learn much more quickly if you teach him what you want him to do rather than trying to tell him no and not provide any information about what is a more appropriate behavior. Not to mention, your relationship will be much better when it's built on trust, not fear.
When he's biting, get up and ignore him until he calms down. Once he does, then you can resume play. Humping is a result of his hormones starting to appear. There's nothing wrong with him humping his toys. If you don't like it, then use that time to start to distract him from the action by engaging him in play. Keep working to reinforce behaviors that you find to be acceptable. Puppies aren't born knowing your house rules. You need to teach them how to become good citizens.
