And what do you do when he starts his nipping and biting? How do you correct that?

Usually I give him a light hit to the chest with my knee along with a jerk of the leash(attached to the prong collar) to get him off, and then say off and if he listens to that command, then I'll tell him to sit.

I totally agree a sport like agility would be great for him, just not until the dog has some measure of respect for the handler. At 70 pounds he's learned to throw his weight around and needs some serious manners!
