Default Aggression or just puppy behavior?

Don't know if this is something to worry about but. But when I'm playing with my 9 week old ..usually jumping around and chasing her, have her chase me it usually goes into her growling and barking/ snapping at me. Or if im sitting on my couch she will sometimes start barking and growling also. Don't know if this is just normal or if I need to stop it right away?

She's 9 weeks old, she's playing with you like she played with her littermates. It's up to you to teach her what appropriate play is. Chase might get her too excited so maybe ball or tug (with a tug, not your pant leg)
