ok, I need some help...

Hi everyone! We are looking for some tips...Kermit is 8 months old and has been so great. We have only 1 problem/complaint. Sometimes when she decides to play she stands up on you (which scratches your leg and hurts) or she playfully nips (also not meant in a mean way but hurts!). When we come home she gets very excited and happy and rolls around on her back and as you pet her she nips. We have tried "time outs" in the crate, walking away, ignoring, saying "ow" loudly, etc but she doesn't seem to learn or understand. When she is playing she thinks "no" is a cue to get rield up even more. She just doesn't seem to know when enough is enough....and sometimes the "madder" you get the more she thinks you are playing!I was thinking of taking her to Petsmart obediance classes, but when I asked they seemed to not be "open/supportive" since she did not take their puppy classes, so I haven't registered her yet. What can we do to stop this behavior?

(*I was hesitant to post this after all the bad/mean stuff that was said when G posted about Hoggie nipping - so please be nice! I am willing to take any adivce and tips*)
