Miniature Kujo

Pepper is 17 weeks old & for some reason does not seem to connect with me. While I am the person who feeds him (by hand at times) takes him out for bathroom visits, etc., he insists on growling at me & nipping at me. I plan to take him to obedience school beginning Mon., but I'm beginning to wonder, if this dog was a mistake. Can this behavior be corrected? He will playfully nip at the children & rarely ever does this to my husband. With me, he really seems to mean it. He growls as well as shows his teeth. Any suggestions?
