Well there can be some different scenerios going on ...either its puppy play and teething or it's some domination aggression or even fear of being picked up, yet another cause could be pain.

I'm not an expert or anything, but I've heard numerous times that when a puppy becomes mouthy in the wild, the mother will clamp her jaws over the puppy's mouth to stop it from biting. Then, when the puppy stops, she'll lick the puppy to tell it that it's done a good job. Some trainers have said that to replicate this in our society, the owner should hold their dog's mouth shut and say no when it becomes mouthy, then pet it when it's done a good job. I'm not sure if it'll work, but I think it's worth giving it a try. Also, avoid any sort of games that involve your Seth's mouth on human skin, since he'll get the idea that it's okay to bite. Anyways, that's my two cents! Good luck!
