Looking for suggestion on how to stop my 4 month old collie/australian shepherd to stop biting and chewing on are hands and arms expecially when company comes over he is very smart he knows what no means he is good with my 15 month old grandson. I exercise him everyday its a challenge cause he wants to pull and jerk constanly and bite the leash this is my first dog of this breed any suggestion would help.he is a really loving good dog just a few issues with him but I'm thinking cause he is still a pup.

He's 4 months old. Most dogs have the chewing behaviour until at least a year, and just like with a 2 YO kid, you must consistently re-direct and give him alternatives to chewing.
I agree that perhaps a training course for you and the dog may be beneficial

He is young, but that is why training is super important right now. I am sure there are classes or animal behaviorists in your area that can help you.
