When Bridger does that to us it is because he wants to play...I should probably train him out of it but it's so darn cute! lol!
Squ'mey does it too when we are on our walks. Being a gsd I think it has to do with herding instincts. If I lag too far behind he comes and gently takes my hand or sleeve and pulls me down the path. Like the other poster I know I probably shouldn't let him, but it is soo cute & he has a soft mouth, never clamps down.
I use to have a dog that did that. They are trying to tell you sometimes they are bored, it is there way of trying to get us to interact like playing frisbee, ball, take a walk, go hiking. My dog will circle and try to get me to go faster on walks and hiking. But, she is a herding dog too. What kind of dog?

My dog Crystal does this to but only when she is excited about something. Like when I get her leash out and she is ready to go on a walk or when she is ready to eat and sees me getting her dog bowl out.

I could think of a couple of reasons:
1. She wants your attention
2. Shes a pup and likes to chew on your hand (my pup does that)
3. She wants to play
4. She might be trying to indicate that she wants to be let out to pee/crap

It could be a sign of dominance that she is trying to tell you she is the leader of the pack. I personally don't see this issue as a good thing.... I would educate yourself on dog psychology. You can check out books like "How to Speak Dog" to learn different signals on what they are telling you.
