i would stop using the gloves and get him use to your hands, slowly though. putting your hands nearhim and showing them to him or holding treats in your hand for him to come near and take them.

umm your looking at round 9mths up when they start to try and talk.

it will be quiet for a while, s/he will start making noise when its more comfty.

When Amazon did the bluffing stage it didnt last long at all, he would bite we would not talk to him but make him do lots of step ups he learnt that way, he only did bluffing for about 3 days and hasnt really biten anyone since unless they have annoyed him.
