Hmm .. this is a tricky one. I'm not sure from your post if he is play nipping or actually being aggressive. Regardless, biting on any level is un-expectable. There are many possibilities: maybe he is a fear biter? If it is anxiety related maybe drug therapy may help? I think this is something worth speaking to your vet about. It better to try and find the cause rather than just treating the symptoms.
