Our 11 week old yorkie is biting anything he can get his little teeth into, including me lol

When he starts biting things he shouldn't, tell him in a firm voice "no biting" and quickly give him a chew toy. He is teething, he needs a good teething chew toy, always swap out a teething toy with what he's not supposed to chew on. It depends on the dog when they calm down, biting is something you have to train out of them if they are still biting after they get their adult teeth.

While that is normal for a puppy you have to teach them not too. When he bites you say no and put a toy in his mouth and when he starts chewing that tell him how good he is. You can also have a play pen puppy safe area set up so when he get over hyper and is biting to much you can put him in there. If you are sitting down and he starts bitting you can also say no and stand up to where he can no longer reach you and ignore him. I'm only had bitting issues with my two that came home early at 8 and 9 weeks old my others that I got later had learned from their mom and litter mates about bitting. My youngest when she was a puppy actually had to have time outs because she would not nap and get very grumpy, hyper and bite a lot. Although she also did this when she was hungry also. Lots of different types of chew toys and very important also.
