New puppy likes to play bite

Hi! First time chow owner here!

My 2 mos old puppy likes to chew or nip everything he see moving. Our feet, slippers, long pants and hands everything! I tried the time out method where you'll yelp when he bites then if he bites again you'll leave him by himself in a puppy proof room. It worked before for few days but now he's back again and became a lot worse.. Help please

My husband and I train pups, and usually that method works, but when it doesn't you need to up the anti. My chow puppy Jayce had the same issue, we had to Yelp in pain and say "ow" and then put him in his crate. Once he realized he got absolutely no play when he bit, he completely stopped. He now licks instead. He's 14 weeks now and hasn't had a nipping instance in 4 weeks!

Our Snickers does the same thing (he's 9 weeks old now). We do the high pitched yelp like when a dog feels pain. If that doesn't stop him he gets a time out in the crate. So far it's working. But with chow pups, they have a short memory. So you have to keep repeating but success will come with patience.
