Say "eh" or "no" in a stern voice. If she is biting at the brush pull the brush away as you say "eh" or "no". But first she needs to be accustomed to the brush.Since shes a puppy she doesn't know what you are doing to her coat she is probably trying to get you to stop the best way she can. Before you start to brush her. Take the brush out and treat her lots of times. once shes calm start brushing her and have someone else give her some treats to keep her distracted...over a period of times of doing this you have to use the treats.OR if she doesn't like treats as rewards very much you can always have someone to assist you and have them pet her to keep her calm.
