Nothing it's normal. There are a ton of threads on our little landsharks, I'd suggest using the search box and reading through a few, there's also a sticky on bite inhibitation that is super helpful!

With my first puppy, I used to sit on my bed and cry because I was sure it was all my fault, it's not.

There are multiple ways of dealing with this, as stated by gaia bear.
Here is what I did: whenever she would bite my hand, I would correct her behavior to show her that this is unacceptable. She stopped biting my hands and others hands after a few days of reinforcements.

Our little bugger just woke up from his nap and then a potty trip. He comes in, grabs momma by the sleeve, chases the granddogs tail, then grabs momma's house shoe 3-4 different times. After 15 minutes of telling him no, redirecting to a toy, he is finally laying down chewing on something appropriate.

This happens multiple times a day. It's always more fun to chew on Mom and Dad than what he's supposed to chew on.

lol I actually do bite her back sometimes .. since there's no other dogs around for her to play with yet I bite her back and bark at her that's how we play and she won't bite .. few hours later after a long nap she's back to zombie mode

Try redirecting her onto another toy or giving her a nice bone to chew on..on you like my hand..try this instead..it works wonders.

My guys go crazy for raw meaty bones, my butcher sells them by the bag as "dog treats".
