Good luck! puppys are a bundle of fun
Reward all good behavior even if that's 1 second that he turns away and breaks the bad moment,
I have a GM/husky.
Do your home work on the 2 breeds also as this will help you understand and adjust your training with him,
Also be the leader at all times, Dont let your pup pull any of them toys of you, Simple pick them up and put it away untill you decided to play or when the game is over, This will all help you new furry to understand,
If you can it would be good to get him in to some puppy class one that focuses on positive rewards,

Maybe you should take puppy to see a dog hypnosis. They can be real helpful, they helped my dog with his sleeping disorder.

Lot's of patience, and get that puppy some rawhide chews. Mine loved to get these hard peanut butter flavored chews from petsmart at that age. Just remember they are like children you have to be firm and patient with them.

You need to teach him that what he is doing is not acceptable. If he is biting too hard, grab him around the nose and squeeze his gums into his teeth. Do it just hard enough to hurt a little, but not too hard. Make sure every time he does this he gets the negative reinforcement. He will get it very soon.
Dogs just need to know what is right and wrong. If he does right praise him and pet him and give him treats. If he does wrong tell him "No!" in a stern voice.
Dont use pain to train a dog or even your kids. They need to understand why what they are doing is wrong.
