Thanks for the replies!
I forgot to mention I have tried both no and off, and redirecting. I find that sometimes when I redirect her with a chew toy in my hand, she bites my hand while im trying to give her the toy. Also after she gets the toy, she stops playing with it after around 10-15 seconds, then attempts to bite me again. Should I stick with redirection, or try a different method?
I've heard some people have had success with a squirt of water to their dogs when they bite. Would anyone recommend this?
Welcome to the forum. I totally feel your pain, your dog sounds just like my 15 week old GSD Tess. I have tried everything from redirecting to ouch and leaving the room and nothing has worked to stop her biting. I give her a toy and she will bite me, she gets mad and bites me, she even bites either me or my husband when she has to go to the bathroom, as if she's a little kid who can't hold it and demanding me to stop the car and let her go. They are so much like little children going through their terrible two's it's incredible!
I have tried the squirt bottle once and she loved it, thought it was another game, so don't even bother with that one. When I would yell ouch, she would only bite harder and when I tried to leave the room, I'd have to run to get away from her because she'd bite the back of my legs and heels.
I now carry a toy with me all the time and shove it in her mouth and shake it back and forth whenever I see her begin to slip into this mood and attempt to bite me. It is horrible, they just don't realize how sharp those little teeth are. I know I still have a ways to go with Tess but at least I know now that it is a GSD puppy thing and that I do not have an aggressive dog on my hands. Go back and read some of the previous posts on this board, you'll be surprised how many other's have gone or are currently going through the same thing.
I don't really have any advice for you but wanted you to know that your aren't alone and that there are other's here in the same situation....dealing with a land shark!
Good luck and hang in there!
