Teach your puppy the GENTLE command. I start with taking treats gently. After I have taught the pup that he can have the treat when he takes it gently, Good Gentle. Then I remind the puppy, GENTLE when I have a treat. Pretty soon I can substitute GENTLE for things I want her to be Gentle with .
I tell the girls "Gentle with my fingers."
It works with my girls, though I don't have scars from puppy biting either.
You might want to use the word IPE instead of OW or NO.

Spirit's teeth never bothered me as much as his claws. I have nicknamed him Spirit Von Pauzenclawz.
Your puppy is normal You're going to get plenty beat up in the next several months. It's all part of raising a GSD puppy. Little did I know

I got WD at 10 weeks and he spend all that tmie with is mom and litter mates but oh boy did he bite. I used all the tips given here already and he is the best dog now.
It is almost crazy but I already am looking at puppies. 6 months ago I vowed to never get sucked into a pup again because of the biting.......

your pup is doing what pups do. with age and training

Also, praise her when she is biting/chewing something she is SUPPOSED to be.

As you mentioned, your pup is very smart and picks up on things easy and that's a good thing. Use that, tire her out by stimulating her mind, make her think. Work on teaching her the easy commands first, like sit and down and then go from there. Most importantly, get her in some training classes!
My girl is 5 months now and is doing so much better, she's actually a different dog now, but I had to work at it. Tess wouldn't even walk on a leash outside of our backyard, I would get her as far as the corner, if I was lucky, and she would run all the way back to the yard, pulling me behind me. Now she will walk with me all over the neighborhood, staying pretty much beside me on a loose leash. We're still working on her healing but I know she will eventually get that too.
Hang in there, you have a very normal puppy. I know it's hard when all they do is bite. I can remember mornings when I would open up her crate to let her out and she would charge right at me biting every part of me that she could reach. I had scratches and bites on my hands, arms, legs and ankles, she even bit me in the face one day. They get so excited and want to play, they are babies and they don't know any better.....yet...
Hang in there, it will get better!

|RowdyDogs||I agree that it sounds very normal. I also have scars from teething puppies, and when they leave their litter young like your dog did, they've missed out on some socialization that probably would have included mom and siblings teaching not to bite so hard. Keep up with the redirection every time she does it and she'll outgrow it.|

I have scars on my hands from my puppy's teething phase. Normal. Hang in there. Always have a toy on hand to offer her. Redirect redirect redirect.
