That's just what puppies do! But if it's encouraged or allowed, it can be bad. Don't want an adult bitting dog... I always snapped my fingers, pointed, and said no bitting, or hey! Or held up the puppy to my face, and firmly said "no". It has to be instantly after the bite though, otherwise your puppy won't understand. Have it play tug-of-war or fetch with a chew toy. Encourage it and show it that THAT is the acceptable behavior, not bitting its owners.
