Yelp in a loud voice and tell her no. Then turn your back on her and ignore her for a few minutes. Worked like a charm for Crackers.

My Otis had started the same thing. He just turned 15 weeks. I have tried the stern NO and that does not work. I will stop playing with him and he will still try to play rough and bite. I also tried the bitter apple spray but I think he likes the taste?? I am not sure how to get him to stop either and I consistent with my training. I have read that at this age they are like toddlers and will ignore training and commands learned earlier. Sometimes when he is playing in this attack mode he will obey his come command so I take up his toys and go in the other room then I hear him whining.

That is typical puppy behavior. I remember those days well. Just be constant saying no. I used to yelp as well.

Yelping used to excite Honey even more! I would stand up, turn away from her, and totally ignore her. If she then went for my feet, i would walk away, out of the room, for 2 minutes. I reinforced it by saying 'No Biting!' - after a few months, i only had to say No Biting and she would stop, as she associated it with the end of play!

You didn't say how old this pup is that is biting. If she is a puppy, then the above is certainly helpful. If she is over a year, then it is MUCH more serious. I would start the 'nothing in life is free' training, when the dog has to do something for everything it wants. Take up all toys. If the dog wants a toy, he has to sit/lie down/come to get it. Eating the same. Going out, same, affection, same. You get the idea. You must stop the biting of the face. I wouldn't even let him/her near my face until this stops. Again, this advice is for an older dog, NOT a puppy.

My chi doesn't really listen to me when she's biting, even when I yelp or say no, she just bites even harder or barks at me.... She is 10 weeks this week.

It's not that she's not listening - she just doesn't understand what No means yet. The yelping should work, loud yelp and stop play. If she continues, stand up and ignore her. If she continues again, go out of the room, remove yourself from the biting.
She will learn that biting stops plays and she won't want that! She may get it really quickly, but she might take months to get it. Be consistent and it will work x
