Lol my shepinois did the same crap. The yelp just made him bite harder and give chase because he was "winning". I trained mine to stop by teaching off. Basically take a few pieces of treats or kibble make a fist and let the pup go nuts trying to get at it. Say off once and wait for her to stop messing with your hand and as soon as she does drop the food. You will want a lot of repititions of that behavior before you move to purposely try to get the dog really wanting to screw with your hands in a highly energized state and then trying the off command then. Then you can use obedience of the off command to stop the behavior then reward with food or redirect to toy
