Jumping and biting

Pup is now six months old. He continues to jump on me and still bites. I'm discouraged. Concerned I will not be able to free him of these traits. Need help.

Patience is the way to go. When he jumps and bites turn your back and ignore him. Don't react. Sheepies hate being ignored. Praise him when he is being good. It takes time but it does work.
They are herding dogs and this is how they move the animals. It takes exactly what Debs mentioned, immediately walk away, don't speak, just end the play period. I have a "no-ish" sound, one I make when I'm upset and that let's them know the good times are over. Other puppies yip and walk away. I highly suggest more exercise, a tired puppy is easier to work and train. Problem is a 6 month old take a lot of exercise. So patience, patience and a good growl.
Our puppy will bit the back of our legs when try the ignore him. He is getting good walks too. When do we need to be concerned that this is not just a "puppy biting thing"?

Our girls are working hard to use commands and we are now adding treats, diverting his attention with a down or leave it and a treat. This is working a little but not a all when there is a biting sneak attack from behind. HELP!!!! :wag:
