She probably was a little bewildered at the sudden social isolation and that's why she just stood there staring. LOL.

That's OK....what she really wants is your company and attention. Dogs just do. So by removing yourself and ignoring her, you're removing the payoff. When she plays nicely, reward her with praise and a treat. She'll learn that playing gently gets her the good stuff.

You can also get her a good chew toy for teething pain. They sell something in pet stores which you put in the freezer. I don't like rawhide. It's dangerous. But something cold and indestructable would be good. Show her what she can chew and bite on by replacing that for your hands and then praise. Keep on ignoring absolutely the unwanted behavior. Keep it up. It won't change overnight. Good luck.

She then went crazy and started running around our living room as fast as she could.
It's the "Zoomies".
Dante still does it at a year and a half, though not quite as often now!!

I think we are already seeing a change in her. She catches on quick! I'm so glad I found this forum. Thanks for all your help! :-)
