Biting

Question:

I have had my jack russell for 1 month he is a 1 year 4 month old male who was neutered 2 weeks ago. He originally lived with an old man and a cat. When we first brought the dog home he was very aggresive at everyone. I bought him a cage and it only took him 2 days to get used to that. He has improved amazingly since we have had him although he has bitten all of my roommates at least once. He is perfect most times and then he gets upset and tries to bite someone if they try to move him or get him out of a corner. How should he be handled. I like the dog, and we have worked with him very much, but I am not going to put a lot of money in a dog behaviorist any advice would be appreciated.
