I Have A 9 Week Old Staffordshire Terrier. Advice??

I have my handsome man Jackson, he is 9 weeks old. HIs mother could no longer take care of him so we took him in at just 5 weeks. I have a  7 year old and a 3 year old. When Jackson is calm he is the biggest cuddle bug, when he gets hyper, the little bugger loves to bite. We are currently training him, I can't afford obedience classes so we are working with a friend online. Then we will be taking him to places to get socialization when he has had his 2nd set of shots. For now he plays with my sisters 3 dogs.

 

Any suggestions/advice to make sure I raise him the "right" way?? I would never hit my puppy, and I know its all in the owners, but I am so paranoid I don't want to do anything wrong. I love my little guy, he is so freakin cute!!!

 

Thanks in advance!

slap him upside his head, but only when he bites, and when hes bad, exclude him from any activity, i have a staff pitt boxer cross who recentley started attacking me, now i dont have any fingers on my left hand and he has few teeth left
