|Correcting a dog for disobeying a command he does not know is not fair.
There are much better ways of teaching a leave it.
A good place to start is to have a treat in your hand, make a fist, and then reward pup as soon as he stops licking/chewing/worrying away at your hand. This progresses to an open hand, treat on floor etc.
OP, it starts by keeping pup on a leash until he has proven that he is ready for more freedom.
Impulse control games, recall games, and lots and lots of practice come first!
