Hello Vickie, At eight months of age you will want to deal with the mouthing differently than you would with a young puppy. First, work on teaching your dog a solid "Leave It" command following the "Leave It" method from the article that I have linked below. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite Once your dog is able to obey the leave it command during training sessions, then when your dog tries to mouth you in real life tell him "Leave It" and correct him if he disobeys. Check out this video link below. At 3:33 time on the video, the trainer mentions an older dog mouthing and correcting the dog. You will also see below that video the link to his YouTube channel where you can find specific videos on different ways and tools to correct with to learn how to correctly correct a dog effectively and safely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRJJvy3IkIE Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden
