    It is not normal. It is good to vaccinate the dog and try to give a bone toy i mean a bone alike that is readily available in the market. It is good to consult the doctor before jumping into any decisions.

    yes, puppies teeth like humans do, give it a rope toy or cow hoof to chew on, this helps a lot!

    exercise it daily, atleast a hour a day walking, play with it as well ontop of that.  it must be mentally and physically stimulated.  Biting could be a sign of not enough exercise.

    It's most likely teething pains. Puppies generally teeth from three to seven months. At this point, the adult molars are probably coming in.

    Give it a nice solid chew toy, remove anything else it tries to bite or chew on from its mouth and discipline it gently but firmly so it learns what it is and is not allowed to bite.

    If it is biting you, at that age, it's play biting - and it needs to learn that play biting humans is not acceptable at all. You may want to think about taking it to puppy obedience classes if you are having problems controlling this behavior.

    This is completely normal for a 7 month old puppy...get him a puppy teething ring.

    Biting or chewing? Chewing is normal, maybe you could hand him a toy when he tries to chew on your hand. If your puppy is biting aggressively that behavior should not be considered normal and he needs to be taught that it's not OK to bite people.
