I agree w bailliff, just try to be aware of where you're putting the toy and how you're holding it. If I'm encouraging a dog to bite something, it's not really their fault if my hand gets in the way on accident. I understand it's frustrating, our first dog could take your hand off by accident while playing, and if it got too rough or I wasn't able to pay close enough attention, we redirected to another game.
This is what I've always done, but I'm curious to hear other takes on it! I just assumed my dog didn't know my hand was there and figured if I did anything it'd just confuse them.
