Do not support your puppy to mouth
It is the natural tendency of a human being to push the puppies or dogs when they mouth. Do not push your puppy when she mouths because at that time you may not be allowing her to do so, but at the later phase it may become her target to mouth your hand again and again. Apart from this, always pet puppies on their back. Doing this can help you in keeping your hand away from his/her mouth.
