Curious, is he nippy with his teeth or lips? Hondo is all about looking for treats with his lips (my fault) but he would never ever try to bite me.
On the other hand, there are three around a year old that ya gotta watch. One in particular. I just throw my arm up with a defensive stance and say, HEY!, with a defensive tone. They immediately back off.
Being new and inexperienced, I have no idea if this is correct but it's been working for me. I just don't want them to become fearful of my hand being around their face. But I don't want them biting me either.
