Default How to get 8wk pup to stop chewing on carpet and electrical wires?

Some of the carpet is coming up around the edges and she thinks its a toy or something. She will go over to the carpet and rip it apart. I have to usually go in her mouth to retrieve the carpet pieces so she doesnt swallow them. I also have caught her trying to rip the lamp cord out of the wall. I dont want her to get hurt so I usually give her a big shove and say NO! I have no idea how to make this dog stop chewing without force.

Im a totally newbie to training (except I have trained her to sit )..Any threads, videos, advice you could point me to?

Also, The biting is getting crazy she goes after my hands, arms, calves every chance she gets. For instance if im on my knees cleaning out her crate she will go right after my feet..I was playing with her on the ground for a bit (like a dog I guess) but read that I shouldnt do that. Like I said...total newbie.


Thanks
