Ignore her whenever she does this and don't pet her. Only pay attention to her and reward her when she's not biting you!

i agree. You also should say no(in a louder voice), so she knows that you were not happy with her act. If she back off when you say no, then give her a treat. I tried not to yell at my shih tzu when he does something wrong. when i say no, my shih tzu will do a small jump and back off for like 5 seconds unless i keep repeating it. haha! but at least she knows "no" is no.

sometimes it takes a few minutes of ignoring. It may even take removing her (bathroom time-outs). Eventually the point will be gotten.

When you say no, you have to say it in a tone that is sorta growling. I would probably "get in her face" and maybe bare a little teeth/ change your facial expression.

One warning. Then start the ignoring. If the ignoring doesn't work, walk away from her. You are trying to establish your position in the pack.

If you let her get away with stuff like this, she will continue to challenge your position. Trust me when I say that an older dog would not take that from a pup....

What would the older dog do to communicate to the pup concerning this unexceptable behavior?
just curious

You've never observed an older/higher positioned dog put another dog laying on its back, making it submissively expose it's belly?
Sadie learned quickly not to be a bully to my older dog Owen. He only has two years on her...but he still let her know that he wasn't going to be pushed around and chewed on.
Now, nearly two years later...they are inseperable.

As far as things like that, dogs should be allowed to work out themselves. Now it would be different if they were intent on ripping one another apart, but those are normal behaviors within their pack.
