we have the same problem. our guy is 10 months, and while he's gotten so much better, he is still very mouthy and so cheeky with it. he was a horrendous nipper from 8 weeks until about 6 months and now is much gentler, but still tries to grab at us with his mouth whenever he gets excited. he gets a stern 'no' every single time and we also use a spray bottle, which helps alot. any 'stronger' methods severely backfire with him...it just gets him more hyped up. people have told us to scruff him, roll him etc. all of which we tried when he was very young and it did not deter him at all.
