Teagen was a doll till about 8wks(she's now 16wks) then she started in on the need to chew, then wow watch out!!! she just wanted to bite!!! I mean everything!!! but she's slowing down on that. I don't have children and noticed a small child in the pics. so the biting might be a bigger issue for you. puppy teeth hurt=( I wouldn't allow any rough handgames. Puppy kisses and stump wags form one puppy to another!!
