It's a sign of affection. It's natural for puppies to explore with their mouths and this is one way to show their human they want to be close.

This is common behavior for puppies, or a new dog, as a sign of attention and affection. Mouths are a dog's way of exploring and communication so it seems natural to them. If it's more aggressive biting it may be something to seek attention and you will want to replace with a toy to discourage.
