Jack biting

Our dog Lucky was doing something similar. When your dog Patch bites, say "Ow!" and draw your hand away quickly. You don't have to scream or shriek, but communicate through tone that you are hurt. Then, get up and walk away. Ignore him completely. If he chases after you, ignore him, pretend he isn't there. If he keeps trying to play, shut him into a room by himself (a dog safe room with nothing to play with or destroy) - you can leash him to the doorknob to make sure he doesn't get into trouble - and leave him there for about 5 minutes,kind of like a time out. The trick is to do it consistently - nothing will confuse a dog more than being allowed to do it sometimes and not others. Make sure that when Patch is playing correctly, make sure to give lots of praise.
