She sees our hands as toys, we’re out of ideas to stop it

Here`s another great article:

We have a 14 week old female ridgeback. For the most part, she is well behaved and quick to learn. The only thing I'm really struggling with is her tendency to see our hands as toys. When we realised this and foot tackling might be an issue, we stopped playing chase or using our hands in play. This culminated today when she bit down on my wrist and started pulling. She's strong enough that I couldn't muster up a yelp or whimping and any attempts to pull away only encouraged her to pull in the other direction. It is the same behaviour as when we play tug-of-war with her rope.

We've tried the stuff suggested in the wiki. We've tried distracting her with a toy or command. We've tried withdrawing from play or placing our hands on her belly (this usually works to calm her). We've tried yelping and whining and growling. I'm out of ideas. What are we missing? How do we stop this behaviour?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
