Hi everyone I brought home my German Shepherd puppy diesel last week he's coming along so well he's learnt alot in the last week he's only 9 weeks old but today while we was playing he snapped at me and showed his teeth,to me it looked liked he did it out of frustration because I was stopping him from digging im just looking for some advice to stop this from escalating thanks.

9 week old puppies are very, very rarely actually aggressive. My guess is he thought you stopping him from digging was a game and was probably showing teeth/growling playfully. Yes, dogs do play growl. My pup sounds like a literal chainsaw when she's really, really excited, and will snarl/snap in play if she gets too worked up.

Over the internet no one is going to 100% tell you nothing is wrong- if you want to get a more definite answer I would suggest employing a professional, but probably nothing is wrong.
