Smile puppy biting

I know from your threads and personal experiences that gsd pups are little land sharks. I was looking for a good method to stop a gsd puppy from biting. I cam a cross a dog trainers youtube video on puppy biting. Her name is 'Kikopup'. She seems like she knows a lot about dogs and behavior and how to deal with them. But im not sure if her stop puppy biting method would work on a gsd pup as well? Could someone plz answer that for me? Also I noticed that a lot of you said that screaming "ouch" would work? I heard that that could just make the puppy want to bite you even more? So If someone could plz answer my 2 questions for me then that would be great
Your help is much appreciated!
And just in case You were all wondering why I need to know this, its because im going to be getting a gsd puppy in 2 weeks or so

Like you said. Say ouch or whatever word and redirect them to a toy that's is acceptable to chew on.

Puppies chew. They do grow out of it. Best solution is to always have a toy nearby.

I don't use words... Personally. I find a sharp yelp or a "ch" noise works better for me.

Biggest thing though is consistency. Decide on a boundary of what is acceptable, and stick with it.

Depends on the puppy. Every puppy is different. What works for one doesn't always work for another one.

I suggest you wear long sleeves... My puppy breaches the water jumps up and bites she actually got her tooth hung up on the couch and she was stuck there - until I got her off she was hanging on the thread..

So then either one of those methods could work? The last gsd pup that I had just bit me harder when I yelped.

If he keeps biting after the yelp and attempted toy redirection, then stop playing with him. He'll get the picture eventually that biting ends play time.

Puppies want attention..
make sure they have enough fun exercise, mentally and physically,
Then when the fun (to them) biting starts , I redirect and then give them time without attention.

Soon the learn that you don't engage like a littermate and give it up.

A loud NO and a firm wrap on the side of the butt works wonders. That is for serious biting, not just play. Of course have the toys around and keep it 'age appropriate'. The older a pup gets the more it needs to know boundaries. The 1st weeks are mostly for 'bonding'.
