Default biting/teething driving me nuts

i have a puppy french bulldog hes almost 4 months old just got his last set of shots, hes the smartest puppy ive seen and its not because hes my own but because he listens and knows commands already, at least listens most of the time. He can sit and lay and roll over, he is also house-trained and stays by me without a leash on the cul-de-sac and do all that good stuff...hes going into that adolenscent age and hes not listening as much as he used to, he runs off when he has a bone ortoy in his mouth he thinks im trying to get it or when hes eating hell run off when im too close to him for too long or when im really trying to grab him to put him back in the bathroom he likes to run (thinks hes playing)...idk what to do about that, also he has bad biting/teething right now, hes always had it but his teeth are razor sharp and when were playing with his toys hell let the toy go and go right for my finger he just bites bites and bites, hes terrorizing our cocker spaniel (but not our german shepard because he just puts his paw on the frenchie and makes him sit and not bother him) but the cocker, he terrorizes him and bites him all over till he yelps, i dont know how or when this will stop but some words of advice would help! i know hes a puppy teething but he has that wide jaw that frenchies have and he has alot of power in that jaw...it hurts!!!

That is great for the Bulldog family usually are not so smart, had an English Bulldog and she was dumb but so sweet.
Get him a RAW beef soup knuckle to chew on or larger if he is a good bite like that. He will love that. Also flavored nylabone and Kong Toys, fill hole with cheese or peanut butter, freeze over night and he will spend hours on that cutting teeth at that age.
Also, if any puppy does that to me or dog I put my finger under the upper lip and lift some so it is biting itseld. Roll the lip under to the teeth, works quickly to stop biting, hand him a toy and say No Bite after you do this punishment. Not really just a correction.

ya thats a good strategy to stop the biting, but man WHEN WILL IT END?! lol...poor pup tho he needs his soft pallets removed, or widened or whatever they do, and his nostrils opened up, common bulldog breathing problem but not as expensive as i thought it would be, hes doing great but too small for surgery so by this time next month hell be ready for it and can finally breathe without gagging!...otherwise hes the cutest smartest puppy ive seen!

These things come hand in hand with a lot of puppies.. you should have already thought about this- and making the poor pup bite himself?! What will you say when he ends up with a mouth full of blood one day? ''Oh, that'll teach him not to bite'' ?
