a ? about teething

My new puppy, Elliott, is 8 weeks old. He is very playful like most puppy's are. I took him home last weekend and he played and chased the other bigger dog's I have back home at my mom's. I kept having to seperate him from them because he plays very rough and I didn't want the other dog's to accidentily snap at him and hurt him.

He has very sharp puppy teeth and I know he's teething but I don't want my puppy to hurt other people just because he's playing around. He's bit me a couple of times, sometimes breaking the skin (he has quite a grip too) but I know he's playing he just doesn't understand.

Does every boston or puppy go through this? Do they grow out of it? I took him for a walk earlier and a lady was petting him and he loved the attention but he was play bitting her and she said, 'It's too bad you're not a friendly puppy.' and that kind of hurt my feelings.

Thanks.
