Default Puppy Biting

Rosey is doing ever so well, but she is starting to bite a little, she is now seven weeks old and tonight she drew blood from my hubbie's arm. What do we do? We got Amber when she was six months so we never really had this problem. Amber is also being targeted but she can hold her own, she growls at Rosey but still wags her tail so I presume everything is okay between them. Amber is just warning her off, although Rosey does stop for a minute or two but goes back for more.

Looks like you've received some great advice so I'll just step in & wish you luck.
