1.5-year-old German shepherd still puts his feet up on the table

Hi guys, I need some advice. So lately, while I’m at my kitchen table eating sandwiches (and sometimes I’m just talking on the phone), my German Shepherd puts his front paws on me, my chair, or the table. She knows the command down, but she doesn’t hear that, her ears will just go back. So lately I’ve been saying “no, bad” when she jumps, then I take both of her front legs and place them on the ground and say “good” in a different tone. Then I will stroke her as a reward for her feet on the ground. But it doesn’t seem to work very well. As soon as I back off a bit, she will jump again. I try to be consistent with her. I will put her feet back on the ground and caress her. But after three times of doing that, he starts biting my hands (not too hard or anything, but still not good) when I go to put his feet on the ground. So obviously I can’t pet her because that would make her think biting is okay. She knows that I don’t like to bite either. Every time she bites me, I gently grab her snout and say “don’t bite”, but it’s hard to do that when she’s jumping on me. I finally put her in her kennel for a while because it frustrates me. She has been playing with our German Shepherd all day and had a plate full of food and a bone, so I don’t think this is a matter of hunger or energy. I feel like I’m approaching it in the right way, but maybe not? Any advice would be appreciated.
