Hey,

My 14wk old GSD, Bowser has just nipped my elderly next door neighbour as my yard is not fully closed in yet.

He is usually very good, but gets excited and wants to play with everyone. She was fine about it but now I'm worried that he might get into the habit of it.

How do I teach him that nipping is wrong....he knows it's wrong to nip me but with strangers or visitors he goes mental wanting to play with them.

Thanks in advance.

That's perfectly normal and he's going to be doing that for a while. Look up the threads on teaching bite inhibition

Couldn't agree more.
