Welcome, to you and your puppy. First stop might be the bookstore for a copy of a puppy-raising book. Many like "Mother Knows Best" by Carol Lea Benjamin, as just one example. (I like her sense of humor - it helps to have a sense of humor when living with a puppy.)

At ten weeks your pup is still a baby and you have to take over where it's mom left off, to teach him bite inhibition and tell him when and where and with what he can play and when and what he willl eat and when and where he will be crated for the night.
