You MUST MUST MUST insist on behavior NOW. These dogs are not for the faint of heart, or light of hand. Setting you up as the big strong handler is the MOST important task you can do at this age. These dogs are extremely socially aware, and if you are not leading them at this point, they are leading you..If he is physically resisting (laying down so as not to have to do something) drag him merrily until he gets on his feet. He has absolutely NO RIGHT to nip or protest bite you at any time.. and it's very important that goes out of his rolodex NOW, before he gets any bigger.
