Why are you pointing at her?
This is a great game for teaching impulse control - try spending a few minutes every day working on it:
I used part of Halo's lunch kibble doing this when she was a puppy.

|kburrow11||It already hurts like **** when she paws at me...I have red marks all up and down my arms (and I do keep her claws short). She does it a lot when she's playing, I guess because she sees us humans using our hands to play, and we've taught her that teeth when playing is not okay. I wouldn't mind if she just batted at my hands and arms, but she digs her claws in and pulls down. Any suggestions?|

|Mary Beth||agree with Blackshep. You may want to start teaching her to shake hands, I did that with my aussie who was a pawer. It redirected the behavior nicely.|

She's telling you it's rude to point lol
My dog is horrible with pawing at me to get me to play, it's something I would discourage, because when they are full grown, it HURTS.

Pawing at hand
So when I point my finger at my puppy and talk to her, she lifts her paw up in the air and places it on my hand and pushes it down. Is this common, and what does it mean?
