Don't let her get away with naughty behavior because it is cute. Our pups grow quickly and that cute behavior becomes a pain soon. You could teach her to have a greeting spot, a mat a short way past the door. When she sits on it, she gets greeted. I had two dogs who both wanted something in their mouth when they greeted people at the door. My little mix breed always grabbed her toy bone (adorable). My GSD will grab whatever is handy, so sometimes it is a slipper, sometimes a toy. Otherwise he wants to hold our hand or arm and he is not always gentle or holding at a comfortable angle. My little gal-dog wants to run around so we let her burn off that steam in our fenced yard.
Bottom line, as Apex posted, reward the behavior you want to see and ignore or redirect behavior that is unexceptionable. See if you can figure out what you can steer your pup to that will make greetings fun for her and less of a problem for your family.
