I think it is time to get help - someone with the right qualifications and experience to work with you on this problem. Practically all pups play bite, and the odd nip that breaks the skin is to be expected, but regular, frequent, forceful, deliberate biting is not. It sounds like a game that has got out of hand, and the longer it goes on the more difficult it is going to be to sort it. I'd find a trainer now to work with you one-to-one - someone who will visit you at home and see how you and Leo interact in different situations - think of it as an investment in a happy relationship for all the years ahead.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring- it was peace.

Thank you everyone for all your great advice. There are so many things that you have all said that applies to my situation to a tee! Such as my trying to be in a calmer state and also to be consistent and not give up. Also, the carrying of toys on me at all times to redirect bites was very good advice that believe it or not, I didn't think about. Toys are everywhere as it is, but I need to have one on me too! Also, about trying different things like the blowing on the face and the lounge and growl, dogs are different and sometimes need different approaches for training. I will most definately continue with training and positive reinforcement and I will be going to meet trainers soon. I am so glad to have this forum with so many experienced poodle owners. Thank you.
