Default Ruby getting impossible!

Ruby is now 14 weeks and as such still has two weeks to go before her third and final vaccination, before we can take her out.

She gets played with a lot, and a lot of our time and attention, but she is still just a complete mental case! I know she's a pup and they're all rambunctious but she is very big and we are having trouble handling her. The main problems that we are having with her are jumping and biting.

We let her in a lot because we want her to spend time with us, but she CANNOT chill out - even after really intense playing that goes on for an hour or more. She constantly jumps up onto the lounge - she knows the command for `off' because she always obeys it but two seconds later she is back up again. And she is always biting at our hands, feet and faces (if she's close enough) and grabbing our clothes for tug-of-war. It is very difficult to be around her like this because she seems like five puppies in one!

She responds extremely well to training, seems to love it and we have no doubt that as soon as she can go out and we can walk, run and play with her till she's actually tired that will make a huge difference. But does anyone have any suggestions in the meantime!!
