Welcome Emi & Teemo! Please look for other threads about puppy biting. We've all been through it.
To be be brief, replace your hand, arm, leg, etc with something she can bite -- ignore her (meaning, move away from her and don't show her any attention, turn your back, etc). What I found most helpful -- when Beau wouldn't stop, I'd just pick him up, say "no", and put him in his crate. He would settle down in a few minutes. Sometimes he'd fall right to sleep. Other times, he'd get real quiet. [At first I'd leave him the crate 20 to 30 minutes and ignore him. After a while, he'd only need a few minutes of "time out."] Then, I'd take him out of the crate and hold him for a bit -- to reinforce the better behavior. Don't yell, it just makes them more excitable. It IS a phase -- but help her to get through it learning something!
They're not my dogs -- I'm their person
